Default can i do this??

My phones not rooted yet. But I was wondering if there is a way I could use my WiFi hotspot for free. I wanna watch netflix on my Wii lol. I seen a couple of USB tethering apps but I'm not sure if I needed a computer or not. Can I just get an app and plug my phone st8 to my Wii? You guys know every answer lol I love posting questions here lol

any usb tethering apps require a complimentary program to be installed on the target device... so unless you can get that program installed on a wii... nope...

and all wireless tethering apps require root (as far as i know)..

Foxfi sounded great but, unfortunately, doesn't work with our phone. Personally, I would just root as it really isn't too hard at all. One day, I felt my phone was laggy so I decided to root, and that was that.

Once you root, WiFi tethering is possible for free.

I wrote a guide to get new users started, if you want to check it out.
