    Hey everyone. I am looking for an app that I can use my Droid as a wifi hotspot for my laptop. Anyone know of a app that will do that? :motdroidhoriz:

    If your rooted install the wifi tether app. If you are not rooted go to the Market and search wifi there are several apps -- keep tying each until you find one that works for you.

    I don't think he's looking for hotspots, but rather to create one with his phone.

    I've looked and based on the results and what I've read here, you have to root your phone to wifi tether. If it's just your laptop you're looking to tether (as I am) then try PDAnet from the market and tether with a USB cord. For the times I need internet access when there's no wifi, this works great for me.
