While trying WiFi tethering between Droid X2 with gingerbread and a Toshiba Satellite laptop using Barnacle WiFi tether, the laptop recognizes the tether, but it is not connecting. The phone part is working fine as no error log occurred. Even after entering correct data in the password prompt, it is not connecting. Can someone please advise me on how to get the tether working correctly?

It seems that you might not be entering the correct password. If after you enter the password and it is not allowing you to connect then you might want to check and make sure you are typing the password correctly. Check if the caps lock button is enabled. You also need to make sure that you are typing the correct password for your WiFi tethering.
If you are sure about the password, try using other tethering applications on your phone. You may want to try to use Wireless Tether for Root User application.
Also you might want to check your cellular provider’s policy about tethering. There are cellular providers who actually block tethering.
