Arrow HOW TO: Teather with AT&T Tilt 2

I thought I would post a quick how-to on getting a stock ROM WM 6.5 Tilt 2 to teather. I appologize if this has been posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find anything myself.

I chose to use a USB connection to teather because connecting over Wifi or Bluetooth drains phone and laptop battery. USB will keep the Tilt 2 at a decent temperature and charge.

1. Open your registry editor (or download one if you don't have one) and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\InternetSharing\Settings

2. ForceCellConnection should be set to "AT&T ISP". Change the value to to "Media NET".

3. Connect your phone to your PC via the USB cable.

4. Navigate to the "Internet Sharing" app on your start menu. (If you don't have a shortcut on your start menu, the program is located in the Windows root folder.)

5. Select USB from the drop-down menu and click connect.

6. You are now ready to surf the web.

-If this doesn't work on your first try, you may need to soft reset the device.

This works, but note that this is only needed on Stock Rom(s). Most chefs cook a Internet Sharing application in which you choose the connection right off the bat from within it. Thanks for the info, though.

yes if you delete forcecellconnection you get any easy drop down menu to select media net or whatever else you want. i normally do usb because its the most stable, but bluetooth is the easiest, and wifi is the most flexible. youre not limited to one option anyways.
