Thanks. Sorry for the dumb question..
Yes. Tethering means sharing the phone's 3g connection via wifi. Connect any wifi device to it, like a pc, or a Wii.
Install and run quicksettings
If wifo hotspot is not shown, click the menu button and select customize
Add it there.
Once added, click on the Wifi Hotspot text to configure
Enable portable hotspot and then click configure
On the config screen enter the password you want for the wifi
And done. The wifi should be named AndroidAP unless you renamed it.
I use a widget to toggle the hotspot. Used to use quicksettings but wanted something prettier.
