    Hey! Happy holidays my droogs...
    Let me start off by saying that my desktop has no wifi. I was hoping to do a wired tether with my rooted droid and use it as a modem. I would also prefer this method to be free, I used pdanet for a month, but my trial is up and I can no longer log into facebook or other place that require a secure login. If there is an app/other way to do this, I would love it. I mean I could go buy a wifi thing for my computer, but id rather just use what I have already and do it for free! Thanks, any help is appreciated

    This is easy but you will need to root your phone. Google it

    Most custom ROMS have wired and wireless tethering built into the ROM. Research bugless beast, ultimate droid, and others to see if it is included
