Tethering Issues

So a while ago I tried tethering and it worked perfect. Unfortunately now when I attempt to do it its not working at all. Am I missing a step? I thought all I need to do is hookup via usb and go to internet sharing. I'm using MightyRom 4.16. When I go to internet sharing should I set it as Data or phone as modem? And it seems to not take the USB connection. I know I'm doing something wrong, and I've tried searching but to no avail... any help?

Re: Tethering Issues

Be sure you've connected via activesync or windowsmobiledevicecenter first... then do the internet sharing.

I'm in a similiar boat.
People will either tell you to make sure you got active sync or wmdc going, or they will say, make sure you got the internet fix cab going on. And some might say, make sure you got IE running on your phone first.

I have both and have tried the IE, but the internet sharing prog has "connect" greyed out.

Re: Tethering Issues

Mine lets me connect but it seems the problem is the usb connection. I've tried two different USB cords and neither works, it still says "Check USB connection". Anyone know the problem?

Re: Tethering Issues

I'm using the Alltel stock ROM and I use internet sharing all the time.
First conncet the USB cable. Active Sync[XP] or Windows Mobile Device Center [Vista] will try to connect. You have to immediately stop that connection. Then start the internet sharing.
You can't have syncing and internet sharing going at the same time, they conflict.
If you still have trouble, you may have a bad cable.

Re: Tethering Issues

i have the same problem looked around no answer. running mighty 4.16. Best rom ever btw. Tried tethering hack manually, three different kinds of cabs, no luck connect button greyed out. tried different rom juggalos i believe with one of the cabs first worked then manually also worked. Any fix for this? have touch pro running mighty 4.16, radio 1.11 on sprint.


edit: only difference i could see was the dll file that we are supposed to delete(extension)is not the same on the might rom it shows oemagw.dll...cant remember the name of the file that the hack mentions.

Well this makes me happy. That means Im not the only one with a greyed out connect on the internet sharing program that's on mighty rom. I wonder if it's the ROM or what. But others are somehow making it work. If you find out, let me know please.
I really don't want to use PDAnet or the wifi router prog.
