    I'd like to use my pc's internet connection on my Droid. I don't have good 3G signal and no wifi avaliable.
    Does anyone know of an app to utilize pc wired internet connection on the droid via the usb cable?

    Thanks.

    I would go buy a wireless router for $30-40 and throw it in-line. If you have to be wired to the PC, may as well be on the PC.

    Probably get one even cheaper on ebay. That $ is for a new Linksys G...

    Basically, I'm just trying to be able to use Droid in the office where I don't have good signal. Guess I really didn't think this through....

    Thanks.

    fwiw I have an extra dsl router with wifi on it, I just configured it in the house as a wifi (disabled all dhcp/router functions) and it works great.
    nothing fancy, many broadband modems have wifi.
