    Hi! My desk at work is basically in a cellular dead zone. No Wi-Fi either... But I was wondering, I have a brand new Mac Pro with bluetooth capability and AirPort (and USB, of course). Is there a way that I could have my Droid 2 connect to my Mac and use its network connection to access the interwebs? I'm not worried about making calls...

    Thanks!

    I use PDAnet to USB tether and it makes my phone a modem. I'm not to sure if PDAnet works with Macs.

    I was not sure, either, so I Googled "pdanet on a mac" and it yielded several sites confirming it does work.

    That's not his question. He's asking if he can turn his MacBook into a wifi hotspot. You probably can, but it's more of a Mac question than a Droid question. I had a program for Windows that did that. I assume there's one for Macs as well. Try Googling for "Mac Wifi hotspot."
