    lol @rsswga.

    Bluetooth is not the same as tethering. Essentially, tethering is the act of using your phone as a hub to allow your (or others') machine to connect to the internet.

    Bluetooth is a technology that uses short length radio waves to allow two devices to connect wirelessly and transmit data.

    the greatest app for doing bluetooth AND tethering is PDAnet... but if you root your phone you can tether without any apps or extra stuff.. its much easier.. do this bye going to settings>wireless and network settings>tethering and then tick the box to turn it on.. but it has to be plugged into the computer also

    I have downloaded this and I am rooted. The program seems to be working fine on the phone, but my home computer doesn't ever see the phone as a wifi option. How can this be resolved?

    make your droid a hotspot and your life easier

    Pdanet didnt work for me eitther so my sugestion is download from market barnacle legacy that converts tour phone into a hotspot if youre rooted, and you dont need to be wire connected to your pc or mac

    I have to ask...

    What is your:
    -operating system
    -phone make, model, os version?
    -how did you install it?

    If you're rooted the wireless tether apk available via google (Free)
    does the same thing.

    PDAnet just works and is a very simple install process.
    If I had to guess you may not have installed the (software) tether adapter properly.

    easytether and pdanet both work. But you have to follow the instructions to install them.
