Have you tried a different usb port?
I'm having a problem where my BB reboots on its own while tethered as a modem. Just wondering if anyone else is having the problem. It is happening too often. DM shows the unit is disconnected but the BB is still tethered.
The DM has also been a problem after the reboot. The window for the DM is there but no icons to select. I tried a clean unistall of the DM as outlined on the Pin.
Any ideas what might be causing this to happen? Solutions?
I will try that out. Thanks.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Get back to us. I've had similar problems, and resolved them.
I'd like to here how it worked out
Mine reboots alot too. I have yet to figure it out.
"I'm having a problem where my BB reboots on its own while tethered as a modem." do you mean the 8703 is rebooting(shuting off) while your in the middle of tethering. I dont have the problem of the 8703 shuting down and rebooting right in the middle of a tether often. When that does happen Its not any different than when the bb reboots itself anyother time.Originally Posted by paullamm
Besides that It can be a bad connection between your bb and computer through the usb.
like cp said above try switching ports in the comp. or cleaning the port in your 8703.
hope this helps.

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~My BB is less than 1 month old so I don't think it would be its connector. I thought it might be something in DM. It gets corrupted when the BB resets.
I'm trying a different USB port for a couple days to see if that makes a difference.

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it worked great yesterday. Reset twice today. DM also got corrupted. Had to uninstall and reinstall DM. Not sure what is causing it.
Anybody have ideas?
Something new. I connect the BB. DM shows it is disconnected. But I can tether as a modem. I'm not using Sprint's Connection Manager. Using standard modem set-up with #777 to tether.
Any ideas on the DM problem?
Are you using vista?
If not you should do a clean uninstall of DM and reinstall it.
The tethering, Go to sprints website and download the sprint connection mannager. The DM should not be effecting your ability to use your blackberry as a modem.

I am able to tether with connection manager and dial up with no problems. Try connection manager as suggested above, and let us know how it goes.
If you are in an area that has EV-DO, try switching your BB 8703e into EV-DO Only when being teathered. That should do the trick if the usb port is solid and still having issues.
I'm having the same thing happen on my 7100T (T-Mobile). It connects fine, but when I'm on the web, the BB will just stop and reset itself. Anyone else that had this problem find a resolution yet?
I started using the Connection Manager from Sprint. It has solved the problem.
