    God I would love to do that, basically turn it into one of those little 5 user Wifi/3G devices Verizon sells for $100 and charges another $60/mo. for.

    my nexus one is a wifi hotspot whenever i choose to flip the switch. very cool, and has saved my ass several times in meetings where several people want to get online and there is no access in the room.

    That would be awesome, in the meantime, I'm using PDAnet as a wired solution and works awesome!

    PdaNet allows bluetooth tethering on android in 2.1, no wifi as far as I know. It works fantastic USB tethered... very very well. When using it very heavily, the battery actually discharges a slight bit even when tethered through usb, iphone did the same thing, really sucks juice. I used PdaNet on my iphone 3G, it has wifi, bluetooth, and USB tethering... but, having 3G on AT&T in places id like to use it is a rare thing.
