Ok so I have my Droid Inc inactive since i got my gf a droid charge. I want to be able to use my Dinc as a wifi adapter for my desktop. I dont have a wifi adapter on it and 2 cheap to buy one. currently im using my E4GT as my adapter.

Is there any app out there that will let me connect my Dinc wifi and transfer than to my desktop or a rom that has that built in into it? The one on my E4GT has it built into the rom and just wondering if there is anything like that here.

You may be able to connect to wifi and then usb tether your phone to your pc. Im not sure exactly how it works, or if its even possible, but its something to look into.

Ya that's the way I do it on my epic touch. I just connect to wifi and hit USB tether under wireless and networks. I want to be able to do this on my Dinc.

I think its called Internet Connection Mode on the dinc under wireless and networks. I believe there are also several root apps on the market for usb tethering.

PdaNet is a good app for USB tethering, and doesn't require a rooting. It's free for basic tethering, and worked for me for everything I wanted. It was a very simple process. just search PdaNet in goodle, and it is under JuneFabrics.

Sorry I'm not allowed to make links yet
