    ive been using pdanet,and its slow as molasses running UP the tree. and i know the actual speed is far better. are there any apps that get close to actual device speeds as in when using internal browser and download app?? i am an old xp user so using backside built in tether is a no go. need a few decent app suggestions. price of app isn't an issue.

    I don't know of any other apps, but a suggestion would be to make sure apps such as
    -Facebook
    -twitter
    -email
    -SMS
    -MMS
    -other self updating apps

    Are force closed from the settings menu. It impacts the speed especially when texting and using 3G

    Try easy tether, worked great for me on the few times I used it. Download and install the app, then follow the instructions to install their tethering program on your PC. You can try the free version first to see if you like it. This is USB tethering only, does not support wifi tethering.

    Curtis I use Klink myself. Way back when it was 1.99, don't known the price today. I've never had any issues with speed. Best of all, they give you updated apks for all OS on the website.

    This would be USB tethering

    The best one is foxfi that can do wifi and bluetooth tethering.

    How is Foxfi compared to the standard Android tethering app? Any faster?

    Ok I installed CM7.2 to test the speed. I am inside my company office which somehow will limit the speed (big power plant with all the environment to reduce wifi speed). I use speakeasy for the test. with the embeded application my speed was:
    Download Speed: 725 kbps (90.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 539 kbps (67.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
    With foxfi the speed was:
    Download Speed: 593 kbps (74.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 514 kbps (64.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Hope that helps. I will test it from home when I get there and show the results.

    hmm. the embedded app was faster. i may need to dump my old trusty xp install and go to vista or 7 just to use it. would be nice if the rom developers would add support for xp tethering.

    I used the wireless network, are you using the USB connection? I never tested that because it does not work on mine which also happens to be XP
