    Droid X hotspot and tethering

    Hi -
    New to forum. Hope this is the right place to ask this.
    My older Dell computer, running XP, does not have wifi capability. Is it possible to tehter Droid X to the computer via USB cable and then access the hotspot for internet use or must it be wireless? If it must be wireless, any suggestions as to best way to upgrade Dell computer? Thanks.

    tehtering

    Thanks for the quick answer. Being a non-techie, do I just plug the droid x into the usb connection and go for it or do I need to put software on the computer, etc? Sorry for being dumb.

    You do not need to root the phone for usb tethering. PDA Net in the market is what you want to search for. The first 30 days is free and then you pay if you want to access https secure sites thereafter. Otherwise http sites are still free to access.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Not free that I know of. Just got new DX and it costs $20/mo for hotspot.

    I was under the impression that on the new update, it was going to be free....not sure where I read that however. 20 is still pretty cheap.

    hotspot

    Yes, certainly cheaper then the USB modem I currently use. Had hoped to just plug the DX into the old computer and jump on line without doing anything else.
