    PDAnet seems to be the most popular. The free version won't allow you to view HTTPS sites but lets you view any other URL's.

    PDAnet lets you usb tether or bluetooth tether but they dont support wifi tether for andriod... the usb tether works great for me cause it charges your phone at the same time...

    If you use the usb tether, do you have to pay the monthly service charge to do it?

    Basically, it means that you hook your phone up to your computer and use the phone as your modem to access the internet from your computer.

    That's pretty cool. So what is the difference then between bluetooth. wifi, and USB tethering? If I have my phone connected to the computer via the USB cord, it should act like a modem? I assume I need software on the computer?

    PDANet is the most popular app to use. It has a free version that only works with a USB cord. I think the paid version works on Bluetooth {You would also need bluetooth on your PC}.

    Android 2.2 should allow you to tether using WiFi. It will turn your phone into a WiFi hotspot.

    We have satellite internet, not very strong, would this mean we'd not be able to tether?
