What's the best tethering app? I'm not rooted with a motorola droid 2.2.
If your computer has bluetooth you can use PDAnet, it also supports USB if you don't.
Otherwise unless you root, you won't get the wifi connection you're looking for.
I'm using PDAnet. I've been using it for several months and it has worked great with my 2.2 update.
HOWEVER, don't plan on connecting via bluetooth. Although it works, the connection sucks. It's EXTREMELY slow and loses it's connection often. It works without a flaw using the USB cable.
PdaNet is the way to go, via USB.
Does the free one work good. Thanks by the way.
I'm not sure but I believe the free version blocks some web sites, not sure which ones, The documentation from the market should tell you it's limitations.
The free version blocks HTTPS, not HTTP. So if you are just planning on using it for general browsing, and not making any online purchases (since that's usually the only case you would find an HTTPS connection), it shouldn't be a problem.
USB connection and Bluetooth works great for me, but I use the bluetooth more.
Why don't you use Easytether. It's only via USB. But it costs only $9.99 vs. $29.99 for PDAnet.
Or root and just use the wifi tether app.
easy tether works well for browsing but videos streamed over the web are extremely laggy and the free version blocks https sites also. if you install APKtorfrom the market, you can from there download the full version for free if you allow the instalation of non market apps.
i also forgot to add easy tether doesn,t work with 64 bit systems.
I agree with you. Root and get Wireless Tether from the Market.
