Play xbox live from my droid wifi tether.
I am not sure if anyone reported on this but I just played call of duty mw2 online thru my phone. I used wifi tether from the android market and it worked no problem. I had 3 out of 4 green bars for connection which I usually only get with my cable internet. No lag at all. Everyone said they could hear me fine thru my wireless mic also. It did take about 45 seconds to find a game because it had to go to a higher ping to find a match. So if anyone was wondering if you can play xbox online thru your droid you can. I haven't tried my ps3 yet but when I do I will let you know.

I didn't receive any lag at all. I played about a match to make sure but everything seemed fine. No one was jumping around or anything. I have a 20 mb cable connection and it seemed no different except for waiting 45 seconds for it to find a game instead of 15 seconds.

my guess is it uses a TON of data and once verizon cans the unlimited data, doing this on the reg will send you far over the limit. I'd say to simply monitor your usage after a few days and to make sure you use it respectfully in hopes that the powers that be do not get pissed and do all they can to block this for all.

Just to be clear is this for rooted Droids or stock ones? As of right now I'm too chicken to root since I'm new to the Droid, but having the ability to use wireless tether would be nice for the occassional Xbox or PS3 game. If on the off chance it is for non-rooted Droids, which wifi tether program is being used, since there are quite a few?

Edit: Nevermind, found it. Thanks for the tip!
Edit: Easy Root loaded easily, but I downloaded Wireless Tether and I get an error when using that, something about a missing kernal. Hmm, looks like I need to do more research.
