    I have pdanet installed on my Droid, is it possible to set up and network and tether that way? Or even a ad-hoc connection?

    Thanks in advance!

    No.

    PDANet will allow you to use wired (USB) tethering if you are running the windows PDANet client. You can also tether via bluetooth DUN. Wifi tethering cannot be done without a rooted phone and custom kernel.

    The custom kernel isn't finished yet. Be patient. Motorola released their sources less than two weeks ago and its only been a couple weeks since we've had root. Modifying a linux kernel, making it stable, and creating a package that doesn't leave us all with paper weights isn't an overnight task...

    i did it on sprint with my mogul. I had in dash monitor in car a 120volt inverter to power my xbox360 and my laptop. I then plugged my mogul into its charger as wifi is a battery hog, then i wifi tether to the laptop and setup internet connection sharing on my laptop and connected ethernet to the 360....Voila xbox360 mobile in my car/rig

    Some, but when I was playing TF2 on my PC, there was no lag at all. 25 ping and I even had Ventrilo running.

    I don't suggest doing this a lot, though, as it may become obvious that you are tethering.

    i don't see anything about tethering in the post you linked to...
    edit
    I read it again, found that statement at the bottom of the post. It's not ready yet, but close...

    Yes-- I wrote the tutorial.. its gone through several edits to clarify some of the more difficult steps. Its a bit of a pain, but once you're done the program works as it should.
