    The only way i know is to root and use the Wireless Tether app.... Or pay VZW an extra $20 a month for their tether.

    PDAnet for usb connection. 3G mobile for wifi hotspot connection. Gotta pay Verizon extra (gasp!), but they both work great.

    I think most of the tethering apps wireless or wired require u to be rooted. I use easy tether. And use a wired connection.

    easy tether does not require u to be rooted, and I don't believe u have to pay Verizon extra as long as its through a thirdparty aapp. Now instructions:

    1)Go to android market and download easy tether.
    2)after install open easy tether, choose ur current opperating system. And down load the easy tether program and drivers.
    3) copy files to your computer and install them.
    4)then hit next on the easy tether app on your droid till u get to the main screen and make sure wired tether is checked.
    5) now go to your computer. And open easy tether program. Now an icon will apear in the lower right for easy tether, eight click and hit connect android. And bam your online.

    Pdanet for easy wired solution. No root needed.

    So PDA net the free version is free but it has its limitations and in my opinion because I've used pdanet i think it is slower than easy tether and some cites that are secure it wont let u visit. Also easy tether is as easy to setup as pdanet and there's no restrictions on it except if your looking to rout it to your ps3 or xbox then u have to buy the full version.
