    PdaNet -- Use your Treo smartphone as a Wireless Modem for your PC

    here is the link for pdanet. I have used it and it works well. There is a free and paid version in the market. If you plan on doing bluetooth tethering you don't need to download the app on your pc/mac.

    Search the forum for pdanet for more info.

    Using a USB will mean you always need a cable. Using bluetooth will only give you access to select devices. Wifi is a more commonly supported network that will give you tethering possibilities for just about anything. My opinion would be to get the wifi tether hack. You will need to be rooted and all that good stuff but in the end its worth it because if you ever choose to do any other mods to your phone it will already be rooted (which is very easy to do btw)..

    tethering your droid

    I used a program called PDAnet it is free. Now this will connect your Droid
    internet to a P/C. However your provider will start seeing your usage go up, then they will charge you. the droid get 5mb free. Be Carefule.

    What are you talking about? 5 mb? Most if not all droid users have a $29.99 unlimited data plan.
    Please check your facts before you post.
