    How long do you guys tether for on avg?

    I'm just curious how regularly some people tether here... an hour a day? all day? some of you might even use your droid as your main internet source at your house instead of cable/dsl...

    I'm just curious

    I tether my laptop at work, as a lot of good stuff is blocked there. I'll leave it plugged in all day with no problems and hot connecting/disconnecting is no problem at all. I love it!

    Well I don't use tethering all that often, only if I'm in a place without wifi, but its definitely a nice feature to have. And most of the time instead of using my laptop for internet, I find myself just using my Droid anyway.

    i use it often but not quite as often when im at work. since im block from downloading roms . i turn it on and i just go go go. LOL also use it at places like starbucks when i need to do presentation that requires internet demonstration of stuff or retrieve files. comes in handy if anything.

    I use it at work, 10 hours a day, it will occasionally go offline, but I think this is just because the signal in the building is not always that strong. Two clicks on the laptop and it's back online, never a problem.

    I use it for work from time to time when I have no connection available , when I'm at a friend's house where the internet sucks and occasionally to tether my neighbors when the internet is down )
