    Has anyone tried an EVDO router with their Moment? I'd like to share my phone internet with the rest of the house using this CradlePoint MBR900.

    It doesn't state it will work with the Moment, but from what I've read it's usually just finding the right driver.

    Or if another router works, let us know!

    Hopefully once rooting and custom roms get going more we can get an app to do this, the comm manager on my wm 6.5 mogul does this, that is the only experience I have had with this but it does work great and hopefully will be out soon

    What I'm talking about isn't an app for the Moment. You simply plug the Moment into the router and it'll rebroadcast the Moments internet connection throughout the house. It only requires a driver for the phone, which may already work out of the box.

    This is really about tethering whether it's direct to a pc or through a router. I've not tethered a phone through my cradlepoint since I have a card (and soon to be 4g), but it was my understanding the router does need a driver for the phone to be able to work. So the 1st step is getting the moment to tether, then getting the cradlepoint to recognize the moment as a source. The router is dumb. Just because the phone can access the internet doesn't mean the cradlepoint can just simply access it. The phone needs to be acting as a wireless source first which is why you need something like pdanet.

    Something like "cradlepoint" or whatever shouldn't be necessary. For windows mobile, there was an easy program simply called "windows mobile wifi router" which was able to broadcast a secure wifi signal, just like a router, for devices within range to connect to. There is also an app like this for Palm pre, etc.

    apparently you didn't read the question. keywords being, "share with the rest of the house" and specifically mentioning the cradlepoint router. Just sayin'.

    I just bought a Cradlepoint PHS 300 usb router and thought surely there is an app for my HTC Hero so far i have a Cradlepoint Paper weight. Does anyone know of a way to broadcast my signal?

    That's probably the case. I ended up using PDAnet for tethering which works fine. That's not exactly what you're trying to do, but there is a trial version if you want to try it and see if the Cradlepoint likes it....probably not...but I'd like to know if you do get it working.

    Pdanet does not work with my cradlepoint phs300 paperweight if you run across a new driver I would love to name my next llama after you. Thanks, Ryan
