No the reason I asked is because my phone was flashed to cricket so I was wondering if that makes a difference making the phone connect to the internet is all or is it the same configuration because it is htc?

As far as I'm aware, it should work fine. You may want to do a search for tethering on cricket, as I do recall seeing a couple of threads on it a while back. I think you'll have to set your web browser on your computer to use the Cricket proxy server, but otherwise it should work fine.

I use WMWifirouter as noted in the prior post. Nice and easy.
Also per another post somewhere, they have a 33% off sale.

it depends on what OS you laptop uses. Vista is easy, with modded rom, just connected the usb cable, and select internet sharing, if you're using MAC OS, I would recommended the wifi router route.

Just updated my Wmwifirouter to 1.6, works flawlessly. I have been using it since I had a Mogul with NO issues!

X2 on this.

For the non tech savvy just buy the program. It's well worth it and it works great. Doesn't matter the carrier, make sure you have a data plan and abide by the usage limits.
