I'm on 3UK and use USB tethering all the time, it's the only broadband I have. No probs with it under Windows or Linux, what problems are you having?
Thanks for the reply - well I have been on the phone to 3 quite a bit - and it seems the network has been a bit strange.
Whole days where google wouldn't load but ask Jeeves would etc.
Generally seems very erratic - but from what I can see on the forums a lot of people have been experiencing that.
With the wifi tethering built into this rom, I couldn't hold the actual network connection. So I downloaded Barnacle, which seems to work to some extent - but due to the above network issues I haven't fully been able to test it.
Most of the time I use the USB option, as it seems more reliable.
On that note, I found a great little app here on modaco called "USB charge commander" ... really useful if you are tethering on USB, and you don't want to cook your battery by leaving it permanently charging.
Also installed a decent task switcher and a task killer which now makes this even better to use. All in all though, really enjoying this rom.
