How to: Get Wifi Tethering working on the Verizon Omnia I910

**** If you have installed any other ICS files before you will need to do a hard reset. ****

Use the files I have attached.

1. Download/Install the attached "ICSInstall.CAB" file.
(You may not need to do 2 - 6 but this is how I got it to work.)
2. Restart your phone.
3. Test the install by Connecting the USB cable to your computer.
4. Then run "IntShrUI" from the Programs Menu and select "Connect".
5. If done correctly the program should display "Connected".
6. Now select "Disconnect" and disconnect the USB cable.
7. Download/Install the attached "WMWifiRouter91.CAB" file.
8. Restart your phone.
9. Turn on Wifi.
10. Run WMWifiRouter from the Programs Menu.
11. Select "Connect"
12. If done correctly the program should display "Connected to WMWifiRouter Ready".
13. From your computer search for the "WMWifiRouter" wireless connection.
14. Now have fun surfing the web from anywhere.

*You may need to restart your phone and repeat steps 10 - 14 a few times to get it to work.

I did all this, and I use to have it working pretty well, but now I have an issue. When I run the WMWifirouter program, it will turn on the WLAN and IntShrUI and show connected to WMWifiRouter, but the internet icon at the top of the phone will show it going from a connection to no connection continuously, but never lock in, so I never have Internet on my laptop. Anyone know what setting may be hosed or a fix, this is driving me nuts.

Re: Get Wifi Tethering working on the Verizon Omnia I910

I bought an Omnia for a friend who has a phone on our Verizon plan. She has Vista on her laptop and the only thing I loaded on the Omnia (for tethering) was the ICS cab. She used her laptop previously with a USB air card with Verizon and has since removed the program associated with it from her laptop.

She is currently having a problem keeping the phone with ICS connected to the internet. It connects long enough for her to get to a website and then the Omnia disconnects. She has said that the connection lasts 3 minutes. There is no error message, just a chime of some sort. I asked her to try and disable the wireless connection on the laptop in case it is seeing a wifi connection nearby and that is what is interfering with the connection with the Omnia, but she hasn't tried that yet. I found a suggestion on the PDANET site to also disable the LAN connections too, so I will have her do that as well. I am just wondering that it it were something on the laptop wouldn't she have had this problem with the air card?

I also found a suggestion that there might be a program on the phone that could be trying to access the internet on a regular basis and causing the disconnect. Is there any easy way to figure this out? The only things that I loaded on the stock ROM were the ICS cab, google maps and Microsoft My Phone. I believe that I did run Quickgps as well. I think that I will have her disable the setting to auto download when data expires and see if that is part of the problem.

I did notice that PDANET seemed to work for someone who posted on modaco with this same problem, but I was hoping for a way she could tether with a program that was free. I would rather keep it simple and just have it set up to tether using the cable so we don't have to set up WEP. If we have to resort to trying PDANET will we have to uninstall the ICS cab that I found over at modaco? Is it possible to do that without doing a hard reset?

ANY suggestions would be MUCH appreciated!

How do you do this? I have both ICS and WMWifiRouter, free version, and I can't get an internet connection with just using ICS by itself either with the USB or BT. Please explain how you manage this. Also, when I use either PDANet or WMWifiRouter I get terribly slow internet speeds, unless I start IE or Opera on the phone in the background, then connect WMWifiRouter. It is like something is not allowing the EVDO connection to get made unless the browser is open, then it's pretty fast. Thanks for any help with this.

If a call comes in while your tethered, the wi-fi tethering is stopped and the call comes through. You would have to restart the tethering after the call.

Tethering is useful when you have a device that runs via wi-fi and you want to run it away from a hot-spot, basically creating a mobile hot-spot.

I used to use mint to play around with my iTouch while waiting for the kids in my car, or to use the internet on my laptop while camping. It does have its uses, but unless you really have a need or specific use in mind, this wouldn't be for you.....but if you do....this works GREAT!!!!
