    I tethered my phone using pdalink, and it worked fine for my laptop, this is not a question of how to tether. I want to know if theres a way to make my driod into a wireless hot-spot without being connected to my computer, and that will connect devices such as ipods to the internet. is this at all possible? will i have to root my droid?

    root it and download the wireless tether. Rooting for the DROID is easy, is your cell the MOTO DROID??

    You'll have to root to get wireless tethering on your Droid. There will be some difficulties connecting iPods and the like as the Droid only supports ad-hoc tethering, but your laptop should have no issues whatsoever.

    I've been able to connect two laptops and my A4500 Napoleon as well to the internet via my A855 using wireless tether.

    yes, I have the moto droid, but its the FRG22D.

    I found this link to root my droid that says it should work with the FRG22D: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    but where do I download the wireless tether? is it just pdalink, or is there a different application i have to install after rooting my droid?

    what generation is your ipod?

    Yes that method will root your droid. Look into a custom ROM, or at least an over clocking kernel, the kernel will enable the wifi connection. The wifi app can be downloaded here:

    As furbearingmammal said, it is NOT a true wifi hotspot, but rather an ad-hoc connection. I dont own an iPod, so I cant confirm or dispute MNull's claims, but I know for a fact my kids Nintendo DSi's will not connect.
