    I use Easytether and wifi via ubantu Linux. Works great. No need to root this way.

    Would prefer not to root.

    Per Easy tether folks - none of the Droids will tether to the iPad2.
    My guess - as it was not clarified - is that there is no EasyTether app to install on the iPad.

    if you don't want to root you could always try PDAnet.

    per the PDAnet FAQ's :

    Unfortunately with current Android OS (up to 2.1), no tethering solutions will work with iPad unless you root your Android phone first.



    Unlike iPhone jailbreaking, rooting Android phones is not recommended for normal users. We have no plan to support it.

    No you tether a laptop, then you use the laptop as a wireless router. Ergo tether an iPad. It works great.

    Confused -
    You tether a Droid to the laptop, then use the laptop as a wireless router, then the iPad connects to the laptop?

    Yes that is correct. The other way is to root your phone and create a wireless hotspot. I don't want to root my phone so I use a ubantu Linux netbook for the router/hotspot.
