Awesome

Awesome tip! :) I knew about using an Android phone as a wireless hotspot (which requires 3G as the uplink), but using USB tethering means the wireless can be used to connect to a wireless hotspot. Posting this while connected via USB tethering, after my attempts to fix my wireless didn't work and I lost wireless completely.

Agreed

We brought two WireLess Less laptops on line at OggCamp using this trick.
