    I believe it is impossible to wifi tether without root. Wired tether is possible without root just by using pdanet or easytether from market.

    You can tether with out being rooted (not wifi). Pdanet and easytether are to apps to tether. I would not root just to tether. I am rooted and have wifi tethering app and use pdanet 99% of the time.
    I believe Aminaked meant to say that you can tether, not wifi tether, with out rooting.

    Didn't I say that?

    Anyway, I'm wondering if OP requires wifi tether or would settled for wired tether.

    I never see wired-tethering as being useful.. I usually only use tether for a last chance kinda thing, I dont walk around with a USB cable all day. It is nice to charge and tether on a long car ride though.

    I think its possible for someone to remote connect to your PC and have you hook up the droid via USB and do it remotely. Not certain on details.

    Thanks for all the help thus far. I would much rather have wifi tether, as the wired tether isnt as convienent, and dont want to have to pocket my usb cable everywhere.

    Thanks again for everyones input.
