1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have used PDANet without problems with usb tethering for a while now. My question is if I choose to connect using the wireless tethering option, does it come across exactly the same way as if I were using the usb tethering option?Apparently I'm not using enough to raise any flags with VZW, and I would like to be able to listen to Pandora on my TV, which has an ethernet connection. Second question would be; I used a mifi2200 hotspot device to connect to my tv for pandora, with the tv using a universal wireless ethernet adapter. Will I be able to connect to PDANet wirelessly, and still remain 'hidden'?Thanks for any help.

    Does PDANet support WiFi like FoxFi does? I recall it only supported USB tethering and Bluetooth DUN.

    Hello Natey2,

    Last time I checked, PDANet's Wi-Fi element is FoxFi.

    Note that FoxFi works on some devices but not others. In particular, it generally does not work in Jelly Bean. Also, HTC models are prominent among those not supporting FoxFi.

    Meanwhile, Verizon Wireless has since agreed not to restrict tethering apps - except for those still on unlimited data plans:

    FCC to Verizon: Don’t block tethering apps. Verizon settles for $1.25M — Mobile Technology News

    Cheers,

    I'm actually using Susteen DataPilot Tether http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=111387 , which is the older PDANet v2.45, which does not include a WiFi option.
    I'm also using FoxFi v1.91, which works on my DroidX running Android 2.3.4

    I guess any kind of upgrade for me may be disastrous from a tethering / hotspot perspective. Lol!

    Edit: I see Susteen has a variant that may be the newer PDANet that includes the WiFi option: http://www.frys.com/product/6802046

    I am running Windows 8 and can USB tether with pdanet even though I still have an unlimited data plan. However, I can't get bluetooth tethering to work at all. I have loaded FoxFi, but it's not connecting with the PC even though pairing is complete. Any ideas???

    Thanks!

    Hello wyealbert,

    Well, yes you can tether even with an unlimited data plan. Whether Verizon will tolerate it if and when they find out is another matter.

    As for getting Bluetooth tethering up and running - sorry, I'm fresh out of ideas. Good luck!
