I am in class with a rooted droid, granted I just went from DM to cyanogen, and I was needing to use my laptop to pull up a file my prof sent us. I proudly whipped out my droid and went wifi with it. But my laptop would have the signal then drop it. I got frustrated and downloaded Pdanet. I am using it now to type this message. But I begin to wonder if wifi tethering is over rated. Yeah it is good to connect an iphone/ipad/ipod touch/blackberry/mobile device to the web; but as far as using it pdanet seems to be ideal. I mean If I am going to tether for a period of time Ima have my charger and it is nothing to connect it to my laptop via usb cord. One of the selling points for rooting is wifi tethering but I do not think you NEED it. Its a nice tool yeah, but I can get by with PDAnet. I will admit when I rooted wifi tethering was high on my list.....After today it just dropped a few slots. Am I being harsh.........what you guys think.
