    Using PdaNet to play Xbox Live – Part 2 

    I tried with the free version and it didn’t work.  I wasn’t ready for a $30 purchase of the pro version.  Besides, I am not sure it would it either.  Since my failed attempt, I did pick up the pro version of EasyTether.  It was $10 and so far I haven’t gotten it to work.  I will keep at it because this type of connection interests me.

        Hey Zack,

        I wasn’t able to play with this much since the post. FoxFi seems very cool; thanks for pointing that one out. I think most carriers are allowing you to turn your phone into a mobile hotspot with a simple click of a button (or soon will be). This project lost stem for me because of a couple of things.

        • I travel a bit and was planning to take my Xbox for entertainment. The itinerary for the trips have been jam packed. I probably would leave my console somewhere. Yes, I have let stuff in Hotels throughout the world.
        • XBox is not small and weighs a bit. I didn’t want to run the risk having to pay for a bag because I exceeded a weight limit.
        • I don’t trust TSA with an XBox. Don’t get me wrong. They do a wonderful service keeping the skies safe. However, I would leave it in the care of my five year old niece over TSA any day.

        Zack, again, thanks for the feedback. I just checked the price tag for FoxFi $6.97. That is a bit pricey for an app. Pdanet and EasyTether are more expensive, but I’m not sure how much better they are with quality. At least we have choices right.

    Android Tethering in 5 mins 

    I travel a lot nowadays, and I don’t always a WiFi or LAN connection.  I remember seeing a few tutorials about how people were tethering Macs to their iPhones.  I started to wonder if I could do this with my PC and my droid.  I did a search and found EasyTether.


    I will admit, I was a tad bit skeptically.  I should have recorded it, but it took me five minutes.  This will come in handy when I am out and about.  If you are like me, at any given time you need to get connected and a smartphone will not due.

    Have you tried tethering with your Android?
