    I am able to make and receive calls and texts inside my house, but no mobile internet inside my house. As soon as I go outside I am able to access mobile internet (3g). Is there anyway I can connect my Droid to my computer (USB) that is connected to Comcast high speed internet so I can download apps from the Market and use the functions of apps? Thanks. :motdroidhoriz:

    So you don't have wifi in your house and cannot get a 3g signal in your house? I think if you contact verizon they have amplifiers that you can plug in to remedy this situation.

    To the best of my knowledge you can't plug it into your computer, you would need WiFi to access your Comcast High Speed Internet.

    Can we achieve this just by the use of a wireless router?

    Sure, you just have to put your phone on wifi and set it up to work with your wireless network.
