Hello,

Just upgraded my 8525 to the latest and greatest ROM. Well ... greatest should really be within quotes!!!

I'm having 2 problems ...

#1) I cannot use my phone thru DUN. I select Internet Sharing. Disable ActiveSync on my PC. Select PC Connection as USB and Network Connection as My ISP GPRS. When I connect the USB cable, I immediately get a message box that New Hardware has been found (Generic RNDIS). Windows (XP-SP2) then prompts me to install the drivers. I click Next but it does not find them and throws an error that Drivers could not be found. I've searched the internet and HTC sites in vain, but cannot find anything that helps.

#2) When I connect my device using ActiveSync (4.5), I cannot get the device to use ActiveSync as a pass-thru for the internet. This results in any calls made to the internet to fail.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm back on the road on Tuesday and need to get this resolved.

Thanks

also ensure:

Start> Settings > Connections > USB to PC (should be unticked)

Mike,

I had tried that earlier today but it did not work. I unzipped the file and pointed the "Find New Hardware" wizard to that directory location. When I click Next it searches and finally returns with "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software".

I'm confused. Aren't the Remote NDIS drivers part of the ActiveSync install? What am I missing here?

Cool
I also have the same Problem but a different situation

I would like to tether with my phone which I can do with no problem on most computers. However I have a corporate laptop that I cannot install activesynch on...So i just need the driver to install when I connect my phone via USB.

So i get the same error as the guys above me...so any fix to this problem that does not involve installing activesync would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance

Hi everybody,

Yesterday I had the same problem, but I resolved it.

First, install Activesync 4.5.

Second, when you plug your device and it ask you for the driver generic RNDIS driver, you can choose the place of this driver (don't choose automatic).
So point the "Find New Hardware" wizard to that directory location :
C:\Program Files\Microsoft ActiveSync\Drivers
Then Ok (or next I don't remember)! After windows'd install alone the good driver.
Enjoy your synchronization!

Bye bye

When I used ActiveSync 3.7, this version can not recognize Generic RNDIS. Id upgrade this version into ActiveSync 4.5, its work.

cheers

I had this same problem with my HTC Touch Cruise. Here's what solved it:

Go to Settings > Connections > USB to PC
Uncheck Enable advanced network functionality

Then the computer sees your mobile and sync begins (at least for me).

Something worth trying...
If you look at the driver settings for "Windows Mobile Device" under WinXP it shows a file called:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\rndismpx.sys

I'm wondering if the rndismpx.sys file is all one needs to use to install the driver so that WinXP will see the WM phone as a viable device and therefore allow you to use it's Internet Connection Sharing function to give the PC a data connection to the net?
