    A program similar to Joikuspot for Android?

    Joikuspot is a program for Symbian that bridges the WiFi and 3G connection so the phone acts as a hotspot for wireless connection. Is there a program for Android that would replicate that?

    I figure cell providers would be against it as it makes tethering extremely easy, but they haven't seemed to mind that Nokias have been doing it for years...

    Wireless Tether for Root does precisely what you're asking for. Alternatively, PdaNet lets you use a USB cable to tether a single desktop/laptop to your 3g connection.

    I use Azilink/Tunnelblick on my phone. You can tether it to your desktop/laptop and then set the wifi connection up as a WAP. It's free and doesn't require rooting your phone. It comes with a copy of the adb executable normally found in the Android SDK so you don't have to download it.

    Root not required to use this feature.

    I'm reading the HowTo for Azilink. Do I have to download and install OpenVPN on my PC? If so, I'm confused. I don't see OpenVPN for Windows, rather there is an OpenVPN for "Windows Virtual Appliance". The "Windows Virtual Appliance" is something else that has to be downloaded and installed. Can you provide a little more detail on how Azlink is set up. Thanks!

    One thinks it's great the other can't get it to work. Maybe some details would help? What phones, carriers & computers are you using it with? Really, if it works without rooting the phone it will be well worth the price.

    pdanet WILL let you tether your PC via USB to your Droid, it does NOT create a wifi hotspot

    uninstall everything, and follow the instructions exactly

    unplug phone

    setup usb debug in the Droid settings menu

    run the install file you Dl from june fabric

    wait until the program tells you to plugin the cable & phone

    the install program installs the droid half of PDAnet to the DROID,

    there are (2) pieces to the install the PC & the phone, all done by the ONE installer file

    BTW the program works great

    During my initial tests on a desktop computer with HTC Sync installed, the PDA Net connection kept "hanging up". I then tested it on a laptop without HTC Sync present and it seems to work flawlessly. (The instructions warn you that if you have problems to remove HTC Sync.) I'm going to give it a better testing over the next couple of days before I decide to keep it or not, but so far, it looks like it's well worth the price.

    I'm using pdanet with MyTouch on tmo with usb cable on Vista.
    I had too uninstall HTC sync to get it to work.

    It will also work with Bluetooth connection on 2.0.

    I tested PDA Net on my desktop and it kept dropping the connection. I then went to my laptop, uninstalled HTC Sync, installed PDA Net and it worked perfectly. I assume that the problem with the desktop was the HTC Sync.

    Same here, I keep getting install errors on my MacBook Pro. I had it "connected" last night but it didn't connect to the internet.
