A1 - Wi-fi tethering not working

Good morning all.  I just got an A1 yesterday and love it so far.  I plan to root and do a couple things and it should work perfectly.  I do have one issue that I can't seem to find an answer on.  I have an original Droid smartphone and it is rooted.  I have a wi-fi sharing app that works fine with the laptop.  I am able to see the access point, connect, and browse the internet with no issues.

 

However, my A1 will not find the access point.  Even when I manually type in the SSID, it won't connect.  I downloaded a different wi-fi app from google play and I was able to find the network and connect but nothing worked correctly.  The message I got was: "standard android does not support connecting to ibss (ad-hoc) networks"

 

Does anyone know how to make this work?  Surely someone has a tethered connection between their phone and tablet.  

 

I did find this link - but do not want to try it just yet in case it messes something up.  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1591207

 

Thanks for the help!!

Nevermind, I found something that worked.  If anyone else is interested:
