    I bought EasyTether like it a lot. I also bought PDA Net, and definitely prefer EasyTether over PDA Net - and, hey - it's a LOT cheaper! ET was a little faster, and more "auotmatic" when plugging in the phone for tethering.

    That said, all of this may be moot in the next month or two. Once Froyo is available on the DX, you probably won't need either of these apps.

    Unless using ET is "invisible" to Verizon vs. the Froyo tethering functionality, you probably won't want to be tethering, anyways. Verizon will probably become very aggressive against "free tethering".

    My thoughts,

    No, but PDA and the other tether apps are totally not loading on my laptop now. I had no issues when I loaded them with my Incredible, odd.

    You may need to load the new Moto USB drivers on your laptop. See post #5

    I couldn't find Moto USB drivers for Mac OS. Am I out of luck on using PDAnet or EasyTether?

    As far as I know, you're out of luck. EasyTether does support Ubuntu, tho.

    Thanks. The link you provided indicates Mac OS is "coming soon". (I had no problems with PdaNet and the Incredible, but I returned it due to poor earpiece speaker quality - garbled incoming voice.)

    So far the Droid X 3G Mobile Hotspot seems to be performing poorly, so I guess I'll just wait it out, until those drivers are available.

    Yes it took me only a few minutes to marry up my DIC and my latop. I've been at it for hours with this X and my same laptop, they just don't want to hook up, it seems, lol.

    i've been trying since yesterday to get PDA to work, i installed easytether an hour ago and it was up and running in a few minutes (the time it took to download and install) and is comparable to my questionable comcast speed.

    think i know which one i'll be sticking with!

    Get ET from the market, and after it installs open it up and it really guides you right through. After the hassel with pda this was a breeze.

    Hope this was helpful, happy tethering.

    Like I said, ET was easier to use, and ... cheap! (Relatively speaking)
