For you simpletons out there, tethering means to use your cell phone’s internet connection to access the internet on your computer.
In my case, I set up my new netbook with my Motorola Droid and it was amazingly simple. In fact, this entire post was written on my netbook using the internet connection from my Droid.
Best of all, its completely FREE.
DISCLAIMER: Tethering any cell phone to a computer for internet access could cause penalties or extra charges to your cell phone bill. I don’t know how a cell phone provider detects tethering, or why they charge extra for it, so don’t ask me. Just be warned that there is a chance that tethering your phone to your PC could cost you extra monthly charges, I just don’t know for sure how likely it is for those charges to occur.
With that said, let’s get started.
At this point, you should be able to use the internet on your PC!
Personally, I’m loving this because I don’t have internet access at home, and now I can browse the internet while my phone charges anywhere I go. This is also a great match with a small netbook like mine, because anywhere there’s an internet connection (like in my vehicle with my DC-to-AC converter) I can have an internet connection on my netbook!
