    Just did this on a 32 bit computer. RadioCom installed with very few issues and the process took about five minutes (not including the time it took to actually read the instructions). Works great! Thanks for sharing!

    So do we need to do anything special/different at all to follow this Tutorial but for a droid 2?
    I looked around a fair bit and by what I could find nothing is different if for a Droid 2 as to droid 3.
    Can any one confirm? Has anyone tried this on their D2 ?

    There is no difference whatsoever. I used this for my D2 and D3 using the exact same setup.

    Just an FYI, you can also tether for free by using bluetooth, without all these modifications. I can understand the need for wifi tethering, but if you can use bluetooth instead I'd go that route. The setup for bluetooth tethering is a little different based on the device you're tethering to your phone.

    1. On the device connecting to your phone, turn bluetooth on and make it discoverable(making it discoverable may not matter).
    2. Turn bluetooth on your phone (settings, wireless and network settings)
    3. Set the device name on your phone (settings, wireless and network settings, bluetooth settings)
    4. Make your phone discoverable (settings, wireless and network settings, bluetooth settings)
    5. On the device connecting to your phone, search for devices(pair,new connection, varies by device) and pick the device name you set in step 3
    6. Select the service class or name of 'network access port' or 'PANU'
    7. Enter a pin (of your choice)
    8. go to your phone and enter the same pin
    9. On the device connecting to your phone, select connect on your new connection/paired phone (if it is not already connected)

    You should now be able to surf the web. :D I have done this with both my phone and my wife's and we've connected our laptops (bluetooth enabled), my wife's rooted ipad, my ipod and my xoom.

    I've never gotten anything faster then 1.2 megs on my phone, and my throughput via bluetooth is equal to or just a tiny bit faster then my phone.

    I ran a test last night... I got like 2.2Mb/s on the phone, then bluetooth tethered and ran the same app on the Xoom and got about 700kb/s. But it was the first time running the test on the xoom so I'm not sure if that makes any type of difference at all. Will play some more with it later on. But thanks for the tip; that's an awesome feature as long as Verizon allows it haha dancedroid:icon_ banana:

    Bluetooth will limit the connection. Typically to 1 mbps, so with overhead, that sounds about right. This is probably why verizon has not blocked bluetooth tethering. It's limited to one device and isn't really practical to use for streaming hd video or downloading large files.

    Yep. This works for all moto 3G phones. Unfortunately I'm betting their 4G offerings won't be quite so simple. We'll see.

    Out in the sticks here, I'm lucky to get 1Mb and BT is fast enough. It's certainly not worth paying a tethering fee.
