I have been working on setting up Internet Sharing on my laptop(s) for a few days now and have searched and read through the forums to no avail. I need the USB Modem Driver for Win2K and XP (SP2 if it matters). I put the set up CD in and searched it, but it list drivers only for Vista (32 and 64 bit).

Does anyone know a solution for this or know how to get hold of these drivers?

Thanks for your help.

If I knew how....

I could most likely use ICS if I knew how. When I plug the phone into the laptop it displays the found new hardware wizard, but no compatible driver for it to use. I have done a search on google, here on the forums and the MS website and am not able to locate the HTC USB Driver that is called for in the wireless modem section of the users guide.

I have seen some information about using ICS, but nothing to tell me how it works or what I need to do to get it to work. Is it a matter of installing Active Sync onto the laptops I want to use, then kick off ICS to access the web from the laptop?

Thanks,

Bobby

i too have been desperately searching for this. I can't seem to find anything. This laptop is my primary computer so it already has ActiveSync and the Tilt setup, but it won't recognize it once I switch the phone into "wireless modem" mode (where it deactivates the activesync functions)

Internet Sharing

i too have been desperately searching for this. I can't seem to find anything. This laptop is my primary computer so it already has ActiveSync and the Tilt setup, but it won't recognize it once I switch the phone into "wireless modem" mode (where it deactivates the activesync functions)

I'm sure this has already been covered somewhere... but, did you search for the standard Internet Sharing app that was supposed to be on WM6 ROMS by default? I bought my Tilt 2 weeks ago, am on the stock ROM, and found the app hidden in \Windows and it works fine here. If you find it there just create a shortcut and place it in \Start\Programs or wherever you want.

i tried to use the internet connection share - but it wouldn't work either. it kept showing me the bubble (starting GPRS, Edge, 3G connection) and then eventually said "the remote party has ended the connection"

EDIT: never mind, got it to work! Had to change "Network Connection:" from "AT&T ISP" to "MEdia Net".

what am I missing

So to get this to work all that needs to be done.

connect phone to laptop (regardless of O/S Version) via USB cable
start ICS and you are off and running?

No driver install is needed on the laptop (including no activesync install needed), is that correct?

Thanks,

Bobby

Instruction for setting up Internet Connection Sharing

I was able to locate instructions on how to set this up on the Tilt (located in the HTC Tytn II users manual). I have included the section referring to this below so others who may want to know how can get it up and going.

Thanks,

Bobby

========================================================

10.9 Using Your Device as a Modem
(Internet Sharing)
Internet Sharing connects your PC or notebook computer to the Internet by using your device’s data connection (GPRS or EDGE, for instance). You can choose to connect via USB or Bluetooth.
Follow the procedure in this section to set up your device as a USB modem. To learn how to set up your device as a Bluetooth modem, see “Use the device as a Bluetooth modem” in this chapter.
Notes • Make sure your device has a SIM card installed, and your device has a GPRS or phone dial-up modem connection. If your device has not been set up with a data connection yet, tap Menu > Connection Settings on the Internet Sharing screen.
• If you want to use a USB cable connection, you must first install Windows Mobile Device Center or Microsoft ActiveSync version 4.5 or later on the computer.
• Before using Internet Sharing, disconnect from Windows Mobile Device Center or ActiveSync on your computer.
• On your computer, run 3gnetopt.exe from the Application Disc to optimize the connection speed between your device and computer.
To set up your device as a USB modem
1. On your device, tap Start > Programs > Internet Sharing.
2. In the PC Connection list, select USB.
3. In the Network Connection list, select the name of the connection that your device uses to connect to the Internet.
4. Plug in the USB cable between your device and the computer.
5. Tap Connect.
To end the Internet connection
On the Internet Sharing screen, tap Disconnect.

hope this helps someone

Hey guys, I usually try and post whenever I finally figure something out...I was getting the error message: Cannot Connect "the remote party has ended the connection" and from some of what I was reading it was because I was trying to use internet sharing with a mediamax $20 plan and I wouldn't be able to do that any longer because of something embedded in WM6 which told AT&T that I was tethering. Well my laptop is connected right now via usb through internet sharing on WM6 on my 8925/tilt and I have the $20 plan. I just checked my speeds and I am at 1485kb/s upload and 339kb/s (is that good?) seems much faster that wireless modem connection I used to use on 8525 w/ wm5. Internet sharing is the way to go. I am not exactly sure what fixed my problem--I did a few things and finally stopped getting the cannot connect: remote party...error. I first erased the user name and password under the connection settings ([email protected]) and left both fields blank. That didn't fix it like it did for some others that I read about so I did a power down and power back up (not sure if this is different than a reset with the stylus in the hole). Still wasn't fixed...On the internet sharing screen the second box under network connection I changed from "AT&T isp GPPRS" to "media net" and then connected and it worked. I don't think I need the username and password for anything because I can still browse on the phone without them--not sure why they were there. I haven't checked to see if I can internet share with the password and username reinserted...Hope that helps someone else out...don't give up it is possible to internet share through mediamax $20 with WM6...

Quick Fix For Those who couldn't figure it out

On your AT&T Tilt or (Possibly any Windows Mobile 6 Device)
Navigate to your "file explorer"
Step 1 (Locate the File Explorer) Not Internet Explorer
Start > Programs > Tools > File Explorer
(Possibly) Start > Programs > File Explorer
(Possibly) Start > File Explorer
Step 2 (Using File Explorer navigate to "My Device")
Then Locate the "Windows" Folder
Scroll all the way down to InternetSharing (Press the letter "I" to get you there faster)
Have your the device plugged into your computer and run that application and make sure these 2 options are selected:
PC Connection: USB
Network Connection: Media Net
Hit Connect

If it doesn't connect for you right away or gives an error message try this:
Unplug your phone from the computer
On the internet sharing application press Connect and immediately connect the USB cable.

Hope this works for others.
Have a data plan with at&t or you might be seeing some rather large charges on your internet bill.

Is this what your looking for?

Is that a USB RNDIS driver? As in no need for activesync?

I know it is possible, as I used usb-rndis-lite to use my kaiser as a modem on linux, but I never found anything that allowed me to share the conn via usb without activesync.

FYI, for those who do not have activesync for whatever reason, WMWiFiRouter will let you do it via WiFi.

The easiest way.

Just install the latest activesync.
If you don't want it syncing, no problem. Just right click on the activesync icon in your task bar, go to connection settings and uncheck allow USB connections. You'll still be able to use Internet Sharing but it won't try to sync every time.

After you have activesync on your computer you'll be able to use the Internet Sharing all you want. Just be sure you press connect on your device before you plug the usb cable in. Otherwise sometimes it won't connect.

Don't abuse it, or most likely your provider will slam you with tethering charges if it's very obvious you're using it. Assuming you don't have a tethering plan, of course.

Sometimes (eg on a corp laptop) you are not allowed to install activesync for example, but a driver would be OK - so it's always good to have alternatives.
Not so much of an issue now as WMWifiRouter is a more universal solution, but not all machines have wifi, so an RNDIS driver for USB would still be nice to have handy.

Been on T-Mobile web'n'walk (the basic one, not the tethered one) for over 6 months now, I use tethered mode on a daily basis, not had any complaints or charges yet. Mind you, I don't really hammer it, just web pages, ppc app downloads, a bit of youtube maybe. They could probably tell by looking at the browser IDs, but I doubt I am top of their list.

Even if they do hit me with the charge for the "Pro" version that allows tethering, it's only another £5 a month and I am on the lowest voice tariff anyway as I have an HTC original and not a subsidised phone.

WOW!!!! I can't believe this thread went as long as it did. Grats to DuMnUt101 and Evilc.. I wish I had my usb cable here with me so I could test the active sync part. Did this guy ever get it working?

The driver attached previously is not a ICS driver but a modem driver - you need to supply APN, username and password. Could possibly work, but when I run the EXE, it does not detect the phone as a modem.

I have been working on setting up Internet Sharing on my laptop(s) for a few days now and have searched and read through the forums to no avail. I need the USB Modem Driver for Win2K and XP (SP2 if it matters). I put the set up CD in and searched it, but it list drivers only for Vista (32 and 64 bit).

Does anyone know a solution for this or know how to get hold of these drivers?

Thanks for your help.

Bobby
Hi,

If you want to use internet sharing from HTC Modem via USB you just have to activate that functionality on the phone and then connect the USB cable to your PC.
Your windows will ask for drivers if you dont have ActiveSync4.5 installed (XP/NT2000/NT2003).
If you have ActiveSync already installed (this will install usb modem drivers you need) then you should have no problem with drivers and will be ready to use your mobile's shared internet.

Hi,
If you just want to use internet shared by your phone on your PC, you just have to install ActiveSync4.5 (this will install the usb modem drivers required).
This will set you ready to use the mobile's internet on your PC.
After this you can always get the drivers using "Device Manager".

Hope this is the answer you wanted!
