    Are you talking about the new release for " tether for android phones". It used to be for bb's perry much exclusively. Mind you, its not the wireless for rooted users. If its like the bb version, its wired only an uses your 3g.

    So which one are you talking about?

    Here's what I'm talking about. ( http://tether.com/android/download )

    Not sure if it will work on the "X" but on Droid 1 I use "PdaNet" and it works fine. It loaded on the laptop and the phone just fine.

    I decided to try pdanet on my DX. Got to the site and could NOT find the software that loads to the PC. Every time I tried to download, all I was given was a way to get the app for the phone. There were no instructions as to how to get the software that the PC needs!!!

    Forget all that stuff. Root your phone with z4root then get barnacle for wireless tethering. Its a piece of cake.

    Just remember PDAnet is only free for like the first month and then it will want you to pay to go to secure sites (like your bank, etc.). But that was like a 3 months ago when I used it. Now I am rooted and use WiFi tether dancedroid

    Better solution. I just went to the Market and downloaded the FREE app "Wireless Tether" and it worked immediately.

    I use EasyTether (free version) and it's pretty easy. The only thing is that my phone will only tether if I place it in Charge Only mode for the USB connection.

    Other than that, it's been good.

    Thats interesting. Why Chicago? Where are you? I tried ET and couldnt get it to work. Maybe I should have tried "Chicago Only" but I would never have thought of that since I live in far south Texas...
