    MH - thanks for the response. I'm beginning to get really frustrated with this phone...

    I installed the HTC Sync on my PC. Now when I connect the phone and attempt to get the tether working it says that I need to enable the USB tether option (it already was enabled). What gives?

    Edit: OK got it figured out. It took a while, but I'm now posting from my EVO! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! and, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! on Sprint for wanting to charge $30/month for something that should be a feature at no additional cost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Rich_c, easytether is great, simple to use and easy to set up on your laptop.
    I'm interested to know how your second laptop connected to the network you set up. Was it wireless off the first computer, Bluetooth, USB?

Check the Marketplace. Even have downloaded >600MB before (Windows SP). Just be darn sure you have unlimited data. Cool seeing >700MB data usage on my Sprint account. Oh, posting this from my laptop tethered to my Evo
    I use pdaNET as well, I just got it about a week ago, it's currently 'on sale' for $15. I love it, the speeds are pretty fast, I've got no complaints.

    Just root you're phone and you can use free wifi tether. It works just like the hotspot that sprint charges for. Pdanet will work fine but some people say it slows down the speed compared to other tethering programs. I guess you can just try different programs and see which works better. I myself also use easy tether pro since it can tether to an xbox or ps3 and seems to be faster than pdanet, not to mention cheaper.

    +1 for rooting. I am running the MIUI rom that has native wifi tethering and I use it on a daily basis. I tether my wifi only iPad and with only 3G my downloads are almost double what my friend's 3G iPad can do.

    Great point. I would also get a wifi only ipad to tether but rumor is they are releasing ipad 2 in february. But that is a good reason to root. So you don't have to pay extra on something you already pay for.
