Internet Sharing not working on desktop PC

I have an HTC Touch Pro. When I plug it into my laptop via USB, I can use internet sharing to use the internet on my laptop no problem. The Touch Pro shows the status as connected, and I can browse the internet on my laptop.

However, when I plug it in via USB to my other computer, it doesn't work (Windows XP). The status on the phone still says "check usb cable connection" and I cannot connect to the internet on my computer. I know the USB ports on the computer work fine as I can use them on other devices, and also when I plug in the phone the computer recognizes it and asks if I want to use active sync or just use it as a disk drive, so it's definitely connected but the internet sharing isn't working.

Also, I've heard of ActiveSync causing a problem with it so I'm not using that, I'm choosing to connect as a disk drive and still no luck.

Help!

Re: Internet Sharing not working on desktop PC

Connecting as a disk drive will not work to get internet access, I would suggest using active sync. Also try installing the cab that I have attached to this post, when you plug in your phone it will give you 3 options now, the third one is Internet Sharing. Try that out. If not, if your PC has Blue Tooth capability, I use Bluetooth internet sharing on mine and it works just fine.

Re: Internet Sharing not working on desktop PC

You will still need activesync installed on the pc you want to tether to. Activesync installs all the drivers needed to activesync and for Phone as a modem. You probably have a lack of drivers.

Instead of telling them thanks. You could help them(just as they helped you) by hitting the thanks button.

Re: Internet Sharing not working on desktop PC

No, Vista has the Windows Mobile Device Center. IMO it lacks the connectivity that ActiveSync has, but, what can you do?

Re: Internet Sharing not working on desktop PC

True.. I know i've been able to tether before and recently I have not been able to. I have the ICSFix and all that jazz. Is there something I'm missing?
