    Ok so i love the app Tether and how it works flawlessly with my Blackberry to enable internet for my laptop.I have been waiting and waiting for Tether to release a version for the playbook and today i decided to do a little digging and found a program called connectify that enables your laptop to act as a mobile hotspot for other devices.So i gave it a shot and wouldnt you know it,i have my phone tethered to the pc via "Tether" the app/program and i have my laptop sending the connection out as a hotspot using Connectify! It works faster then my verizon mifi hotspot!! So if this interest you go give it a shot and you wont regret it.Connectify has a paid and free version and the free version works wonderful! I hope this helps someone as it did me. The connection speed on the Playbook is way better then i would have expected.

    This one is similar and would work with a Win 7 PC.

    Awesome! That's handy to know.

    I don't always have my laptop with me though... still better than nothing.
