    Yes............you need to simply put "tether" in the search feature on this forum to get the most complete answer to that question.

    Wifi tether, yes.
    Look up easytether or PDAnet in the market. I have not tried those, but i believe you have to be connected via the USB, and have some program also installed on your PC...

    But if you root you can just create a wifi hotspot...
    works great.

    i just found in the MARKET pdanet

    works great you don't need to ROOT. I am still on 1.5


    SUPER EASY TO INSTALL.... directions are super easy to follow!!

    hopefully it still works with i get the 2.1 update.

    seriously this is the best thing ever. But use it if you have unlimited data plan on your phone. ERIS FTW!!!!

    Yup. My wife has an iTouch. Now thanks to my wifi tether, she plays with her iTouch and leaves my eris alone:D

    First step is you have to root.

    After that, it's as simple as downloading the app. Just click to turn on Wifi tether.
    I was very impressed at the range and decent speed her iTouch can surf on my tether....
