    I was wandering if there was an app that I could download to give me a feature like the palm pre plus with the mobile hotspot app (ad-hoc) without having to root the device... thanks

    PDA Net application does not have to have the phone rooted. The standard version is free but restricts you to non-HTTPS sites, while the pro (I forget how much it is) allows you to use the HTTPS sites.

    PDAnet is not wifi and only suports 1 computer at a time... its pretty much the anti-wifi tether experience.

    the wifi tether for root is pretty good though

    I never tried it, but I thought that PDA Net was basically Wifi tether for Root with restrictions. I guess I was wrong. So how does that work then?

    PDAnet has an app for the Droid and for the PC. You need both.
    Droid is basically a bridge for internet access.

    $30 is for the paid version, but as you already said the free restricts https sites.

    Ah ok. I guess if you aren't rooted it's really your only option though.

    just root and have a blast, im running bugless beast 7.5 with wifi
    and its very cool and smooth, turn on the wifi app and everything in house
    can connect to it with no issues,
    downloaded new ubuntu 9.10 for my laptop installed it and running now, just clicked on networks and my droid was right there and connected laptop to droid in 2 seconds
    forget windows all together im liking linux and android way better
    smoother, faster and safer all the way around

    Will the basic wireless tether work with multiple connections though? I have Sholes and it works great but I can't test it to see if it actually allows more than one computer to connect to the net at once, anyone test this?

    No I didn't try it, but not sure why it wouldn't.
