G1 gets USB teathering without root access hack

Filed under: Technology — coretron @ 4:32 pm

A program for Windows called PdaNet already has versions for palm os, windows mobile, the iphone, and now android. You install the application on your PC with your phone plugged in USB, it then magically installs the program on the phone. Run the app on the phone and the computer and you have full 3G internet. Its a good idea to keep a copy of the .exe on your sdcard on the phone as an internetless computer will have no way of downlaoding the required application. Its great not only for laptops, but also if you internet connection goes down for any reason. If you have a rooted G1 you can also teather through wifi, which requires no special software on the PC.  Get it at junefabrics.com/android/. Im on the 3g now getting 254 kbps down 190, at Luis’ I got over 300 up and down, probably cause its primetime  for cell traffic now. 50 pings to google.com yeilds 0% loss, min 125ms, max, 450ms average 243ms. The application can also be used to being wifi access to a computer lacking wifi through tethering.
