    How do we use the Wifi tethering? If Wifi is free whats the point of using tethering. I want to be able to use my Verizon network as a modem.

    If you have root access and a Rom that has wifi tethering installed you can use your phone like a hotspot. Just as if you were in a coffee shop......only difference is that its your phone that is the hotspot. It will be visable to wireless devices such as laptops, netbooks, ect.......

    Wifi tethering makes your droid a wifi hotspot, when there is no other wifi.

    I found my wireless tether here. Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I use Pre8 version...just noticed there is a new version Pre10...but 8 works just fine for me.

    Anyone else have a different tether that they prefer?

    You can secure it with a password like any other wifi modem so it is not visable but you would have to sync your laptop like you would any secure wifi connection

    PS: this one (the one mentioned above) works great

    Now this looks really good I just wish there was a no-root version. I cannot root due to work or I would be all over this.

    search for "pdanet" then. it's not wireless, but you can still tether that way without rooting.

    I am using easy tether right now.
    Works great.
    I just want to use WiFi tethering in the future without rooting. I cannot root due to work restrictions with my Droid.
