How to use phone as modem?
 
Hi, my Bell eWire modem just died, and it's going to take 3 - 5 business days for them to send out a new one... a LIFETIME!

I want to use my phone as a modem, but I don't know the steps to take. I have the Mighty ROM flashed, and when I connect the USB, there is the option to 'Use Phone As Modem', but it just says 'Check USB cable connection' under 'Status' on the Internet Sharing screen, and my laptop still has no Internet.

What do I need to do to make it work? Sorry if this has been answered in another thread, but I'm just on my phone and I could only find tethering fix stuff, not the process of hooking it up.

Please help!

look for the internet sharing program. Also you would need active sync installed on your laptop.

There is an Internet Sharing Cab that you can download that should solve your issue. You can find it in the Diamond section. Sorry about not posting a link but I am just sitting down for dinner. It can be found in a couple of different threads.
Plug the usb cable from the port of your Diamond to the port of your laptop and press internet sharing in your program menu or start menu of your Diamond. It should work but you may want to use one of the cabs below so the setting says Sprint.

is there any speed differences between going wifi/bluetooth or usb (using wmwifirouter)?

yep same here i would definitely go with the wm wifirouter, and simply google it and believe me i use it on my mac all the time, as a matter a fact im running it right now!! hehe, but either way try out the cabs or the wifi router, and whichever works great for u, dont forget to click the thanks.

i always preferred using my wifi router over the usb, but i never really coulndt compare the two side by side, but thats just my personal input.

I also use WMWifiRouter and it is well worth the price of admission but the op seemed to suggest that he only needed a 5 day Temporary solution until his router comes back from repair which is why I figured he would want a free short term solution but I also think that www.WMWifiRouter.com may interest him also :)

I think I remember reading somewhere that the usb connection was slightly faster.
