Are there any widgets on the market that let me control standard Android tethering? I use it quite a lot and it's a pain to have to navigate through all the Settings options just to check a checkbox...

You can simply install the GoLauncherEX and then install the GO Switch Widget. It is awesome and lets you control lot of other functionality other than tethering.

'GO Switch Widget' does not have any option for controlling tethering. – VVK Feb 2 '12 at 4:46
It does have a widget for Wifi AP. – Sumit Nathany Feb 3 '12 at 8:38

Have a look at Tethering Widget. Its a free widget with nice look. It can be used to enable/disable WiFi and USB Tethering as well.

To add, press Home button

Menu | Add | Widget | Tethering (full) / Tethering (small)
