    How to Tether Droid(w/o net) to Laptop(w/net)

    How do you tether a Droid to your Laptop? I'm outside of the Verizon/3g network. I have tried ad-hoc and was unsuccessful. Does anyone have an idea how to do this... Is there an app. or a way to set up your laptop as a hotspot or act like a router?


    I'm using Win 7 and Mota Droid Rooted

    Thanks!

    Easy Tether?

    I know there's an app called Easy Tether. I've got it downloaded but not tested yet. Just a thought. Maybe you tried it already and it didn't do the trick.

    No worry's... That's the main problem I'm having is searching for the answer. Everything I type comes up with that type of solution. I have found two programs that may work. But, their having compatibility problems with my OS/computer. They need Win 7 with Win 7 certified hardware. (My Laptop is a Toshiba M700/ and it came with vista) This is a ...

    Programs are;

    Okay those programs are the right one but only on Win 7 certified systems. So I still have the problem but heads up for anyone else.

    Hey I'll take anything bluetooth pairing, ad-hoc/apps-hack, or voo-doo curse... anything?

    Like I said before the other programs work but not on my computer. Its works though a friends laptop but not mine. Nor will it the "Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN" wifi card is not supported by these programs which are very cool by the way.

    But a second problem has shown up I can log in to my gmail or google market place. Is there a good reason why? I'm out of the U.S. right now and am in the mid-east. Is there a work around?

    Thanks for any help or guess

    How is your laptop getting its network? Hard wired or wireless?

    Why not just pop a wireless router on your wired network and let it serve your phone?
