    yeah i have both barnacle and wireless tethering apps, but for some reason i've only gotten them to work intermittently. still curious about the usb tethering tho, cause i know some people have been using it without having to pay

    if you use the usb tether built in to froyo you will have to pay verizon the monthly fee( i think it is $30 per month) if yo use an app like pda net, wireless teher for root users, or any ofthe other apps on the market they are either free or a one time charge. i personally us the wireless tether for root users and have no problems with it. hopes this helps.

    EasyTether is cheaper than PDAnet and works on non-rooted. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Wireless tether and PDA.net both work for me. Curios though, is wireless tether simply creating a AD HOC?

    Use WIRED Tether For Root Users, problem solved.

    PDAnet and Easytether kills SSL connections after a certain time and you gotta pay a one time fee to activate SSL.

    Thanks @ chevycam94. Tried the wired tether w/ Droid, BBv0.4 and worked great. Very simple. Hung up my netbook (Win XP) when I stopped the tether, had to hard reboot, but that was likely my fault for not ejecting the USB.

    Wireless ad hoc tether app worked for me too! Need to play with the encryption and access control a bit.

    Any insights from folks on the encryption options....auto, or the other two...they don't appear to be the typical WPA2, etc...

    Yes, both of those are paid apps and neither one allows secure connections with their free versions. BUT, both work for non-root users, which is what sold me on EasyTether. I mean come on. It's 10 bucks. I'd blow that much on lunch and not think twice about it. It was worth the price for me, as I'm sure it is for others.
