Got phone as modem to work

1) D/l & install Resco Explorer. Make sure you get the registry plug-in also. http://www.resco.net/pocketpc/explorer/
2) Using registry editor......HKLM\Comm\InternetSharing
Delete this string: Extension - IcsHelper.dll
3) Start -> Programs -> Internet sharing -> Connect (I'm using USB cable)

Blazing fast...EVDO rev A = the bomb. I am in Gainesville, FL so not a big city at all



Faster than wireless at home

Re: Got phone as modem to work

Well this is frustrating. Upon trying to connect again, it will not work and I get a looping message as it tries to connect. If I hard reset, and do the steps I outlined above, the connection works. Why is this happening? I haven't installed any other apps or changed settings?

Re: Got phone as modem to work

grrr.... I still can't get it to work. I've completely deleted the entry and still no love. Tried all sorts of options. My ol' standby PDAnet isn't working either... used that on my 700w before verizon allowed tethering with the 1.22 update.

Havn't been impressed with my speeds here either. Running DSLReport.com/mspeed test on the 1mb setting, my Verizon (EVDO) 700w smokes the connection on this new 800w (EVDO rev.A). I consistantly get 800-900kbps on my verizon connection, get a weak 400k on my sprint. Poor showing, and it's the whole reason I went with Verizon 2.5 years ago... they were the only network around 1meg. AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, all their data was 250k-400k.
