    I am referring to android-wifi-tether (android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code). It is still in Beta and not available from the market. Just browse to it from your droid, download and install.

    I have also used Barnacle, but recent versions stopped working. I can't remember if Barnacle had the same issues as wifi-tether.

    It is probably worth investigating again.

    I believe all wifi tethers require the phone to be rooted.

    Re: wifi tether and windows 7...

    PDAnet is decent. I purchased before rooting my phone and it works well. PDAnet works great using usb tether, but it seemed to drop my connection when often when using bluetooth DUN.
    I was really looking for a stable wireless tether so that led me to rooting and wifi tether. The wifi tether works reasonably well, and is stable most of the time. My only complaint is the inability to connect automatically.
    I live off grid and my phone is my only source for internet. I refuse to have hughesnet as they are overpriced and their service sucks. I also refuse to give verizon 60 dollars a month for their 5gb data plan, since they charged me an extra 165 dollars a few months back when I unknowingly went over my 5gb allowance on my usb modem. Which I have cancelled since then.
    From what i 've read and talked to verizon support (a friend of mine), my phone's internet is unlimited....to an extent. As long as I don't tell them I'm tethering it's unlimited, if I do the tether plan it's an extra 15 dollars a month, and then it's limited to 5gb. What a joke. End rant.

    Anyway, so my phone is my only internet source. It would be super convienant to have my other devices connect automatically to my droid, at least my laptop. I am still looking for a solution, but no luck as of yet. If I happen to stumble across something that works ill post back here.

    I'm using this, and for some reason it only works for about 30 minutes and then stops.
    The app looks like it's running, but my PC doesn't see it.

    I had used it on my OG Droid and had no problems.
    I am NOT running any tasker or battery saver type programs that could conflict with the settings.

    Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Really your revivng a nearly 2 year old thread? Its no the app thats failing, its most likely your 3G getting cut out, if it happens AFAIK there is no known way to fix it.

    Today I got it to go for about 5 hours before it dropped the connection.

    Could it be that my connection drops when the phone attempts to go to 1x?
    Or could it be some other fluke like that?

    Do we suppose a future update (radio, 4.0.3, etc) will fix it?
