Laptop won't connect with WMWifiRouter

I just got a Bell Touch Pro yesterday and haven't put any custom roms on it yet so I don't know if a custom rom would fix this problem.
I installed ICS and WMWifiRouter and WMWifiRouter sets up the connection just fine... just like it did on my 6700 and 6800 previously.
My laptop connects to the Pro and sets up the network just fine but the network status shows up as local only and I can't connect to the internet. With my 6700 and 6800 it would show up as "Local and Internet". (Windows Vista)
Any help would be appreciated.
edit: I did try the ICS fix cab from the Essentials thread. After rebooting I had no data connection at all. I rebooted a second time and had my data on my phone back. I still couldn't connect to the internet through WMWifiRouter though.
edit 2: it must have been something in the stock rom that prevented WMWifiRouter from working. It's working perfect now with a custom rom on it.

Not sure what you mean by RP but yes, I did set it up as an ad-hoc network. I just used the default settings for everthing. The same thing I've done on my 6700 and 6800. The laptop connects to the wifi end of things just fine and sets up the network but it doesn't see the internet conenction. I've never had to start PIE first on my 6700 or 6800 so I didn't do that. The data connection is always active though and if it's not, WMWifiRouter starts it anyways.

Nope, starting PIE first doesn't make a difference. Still just connect locally and no internet.
I'm using v.3.25 of WMWR. There, that's a bit shorter eh? lol... it is a long name.

I should note that if I connect it via USB instead of wifi, I get the same thing. It connects the phone just fine but gets no internet. It shows that it's conneted to a local area connection just as if I plugged in a network cable to connect to a wired network.

Re: Laptop won't connect with WMWifiRouter

did you apply the tweaks posted on the essentials, I doubt it will make a difference but I am jus trying to have you duplicate my settings to get it to work assuming there isnt much difference between Sprint stock and Bell stock

If you mean the cab mentioned to enable/fix ICS, I did try that.
edit: I think you were talking about a different set of edits that I didn't try before. For some reason I didn't see them the first time... I just made the edits and am trying them it out now.

Not sure what the differences between Sprint and Bell stock roms are but the M.I.P. settings in PST are different from my 6700 and the TP. I tried duplicating the settings from the 6700 to the TP but then I lost all data so I put it back to stock.

edit: Tried the reg edits and it didn't make any difference.

Well the tweaks are for Sprint users to tether below radar, dunno bout Bell. Let meknow what troubleshooting step you are taking. An uninstall and reinstall may do the trick. Another Weefee version? How long have you had your TP?

I did see that those reg edits were for Bell... I edited the one that would be different for me to reflect my data connection name.

I'm going to try something else in PST... and put a custom rom on once I get the kitchen downloaded... I'm at my mom's for Christmas and the internet here is kinda patchy. I'll post up once I get it working.

I just got my TP yesterday... Have barely had it over 24 hours.
I've got the latest WMWR version. v3.25
