    I have the Droid Eris through Verizon that has Wi-Fi connectivity.
    I know that this device will RECEIVE a wi-fi signal, but does it send one out?
    My laptop is also Wi-Fi capable. Will my laptop be able to pick up on the Wi-Fi signal sent out from the Droid device?

    Tethering requires the USB connection, correct?
    I want to connect wirelessly.

    The regular droid does wireless tethering, so you should be able to as well.
