    I'm tethered via USB right now to use the internet on my laptop. However, I have heard talk of being able to use your Droid as a WIRELESS modem. Is this true? The wired tethering bugs me just enough to ask if there is a wireless solution.

    I read this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-faq/5616-howto-wifi-mount-your-droid.html

    and all it did was the same thing my EasyTether is doing...except i had to be tethered already to use NetDrive...I don't know, maybe I wasn't doing it right. Either way.

    Is there a way to get internet access via my Droid wirelessly?:motdroidhoriz:

    Your phone needs to be rooted for wireless tether

    PDAnet does Bluetooth wireless tether on Mac but it's not nearly as fast as USB tether. The only way to WiFi tether is with a rooted droid though.

    Wireless tether without ROOTing

    I just downloaded PDANet through the Market, and it offers data internet access via USB or bluetooth. Haven't tried it yet, but the reviews, rate it quite high.

    i know you have to be rooted, you pretty much have to be rooted for any tethering to work, except for bluetooth from what ive read.
