I currently have a d-1 and use ‘easy tether pro’ to tether my laptop ( it uses a usb cable). It works perfectly with no glitches. I live in the boonies and use a verizon fivespot mobile 3 g hotspot for house internet wifi. When trying to watch old tv episodes from the internet I have found tethering my lap top with my droid gives faster connection ( less buffering interruptions in movie) than using the home wifi. However there are still several significant frustrating buffering waits with the droid. My question is if I get the d-3 can I expect any improvement with this issue and would the d-4 be any better than the d-3 ? Or is there any other tethering options out there that could help??
