    So I ran barnicle and scanned for networks on my ps3. My phone showed up but it's WEP protected? Where is that key and how can I disable it?
    Better yet, has anyone succeeded with linking the PS3 to the tether? If so, how?

    Ok after my hangover had sufficiently passed I tried it with tether 2.0.7. it totally works! Updating the ps3 as I type this.

    Can't believe I waited so long to root my dx (forehead slap) (dont slap your forehead when hungover)

    Thanks so much!

    I wouldn't worry about it. 2GB is nothing, i use over that just playing on my phone in a month and not tethering.

    I think if you keep it under 10-15gb you will be fine. Verizon is cracking down on free wireless tethering, but i haven't heard of anyone being charged for it. just keep watching the forums, as soon as someone does get charged it will be on the front page.

    I wouldnt abuse it...IMO,its for emergency/occasional use only.If you need it a lot,I advise you to just pony up the money for the hotspot.Abuse of the tethering is what got root users in the spotlight with verizon,just be aware that they are monitoring the situation with tethering.....

    I only mentioned 2gb cause I read that thats the amount youre given for the 20 bucks a month. Doesn't my unlimited data plan matter here?
