    Well, my Droid 2 Global was rooted (until the recent Gingerbread update but I am working on that! :))

    I was using an app called Wireless Tether (Barnacle, another tether app was tried first but did not work for me) and no special settings aside from the security which is WPA2 and from a prior post it sounds like that may be the key. Someone else posted that they read somewhere that you need to use WPA to connect which I did not know, just happened to set it up that way.

    beastman, thanks for the tip! I have a droid 1 (orgininal droid phone) and have not been able to get anything to work. But, the PDAnet beta program did give me limited connection. This really helps!

    Yes it did thanks. Definitely very limited for me though. Bluetooth connection is very slow via this app. Better than nothing though.

    Lucas,
    Absolutely it works. Root your Droid X. Get the Wifi Tether App which is free. Connect your VTab to it. It's rather simple at least with a DroidX.
