    Hotspot really not working with my laptop

    I have a Mac. Since I found out the Droid does not work with it, I added the hotspot package so I could at least have internet service via my phone.

    It really does not work. I'm only building my frustrations regarding the Droid.

    Does anybody else have this issue? Is it because my computer is a MAC? Or is the hotspot just not a very good overall service?

    Umm.. an app called easytether might help you. You just download it off the app market and choose the mac drivers. Try it out!

    i never paid for the hotspot package, but i can tell you easytether works great. i actually you recommend you cancel your hotspot package and save yourself some money and grab easytether. you could also root but that's a whole different route

    I got Easytether working on my Droid1 under Froyo. It is having problems since the Droid updated to 83D. It will connect but takes me to a VZW website telling me to sign up for a $20 data package to use that feature. Haven't figured out how to get around that yet.
