    I've been unsuccessful using my HTC Eris & PdaNet to get internet access on my Windows 7 laptop. Anybody know of an alternative that works?

    Are you rooted? I have the wired tether app (has to be installed from teh interwebz), and it works better than PdaNet did...at least for me.

    If you're not sure, then the answer is no. Read the top sticky on rooting your phone, and see if its anything you are interested in doing.

    Would you be willing to walk me through installation? I've tried, but can't get it to work.
    I'd be most grateful.

    Are you installing the driver and applications the non-root tethering apps require? Have you considered rooting and installing either of the apps linked to in my signature?

    Yes, that's like the wired one I have. I didn't know it was on a google site. Plus, I have 1.2. I can update to 1.4 now. Thanks.

    You have an Eris?
    And you followed this guide? I have a droid 1, so I can't say for sure those directions work, but they look ok. You don't have to install the Froyo either. Simply being rooted (having root access) allows you to use the application I mentioned.
