    cannot tether modem with 8100 (im in uk)

    Advertisement



    Hi Guys,Ive been trying to connect to the inet via my pearl. Ive read few posts, but i seem to be getting stuck at the stage where i need to add a modem. Im running DTM 4.2.1 r13 with OS 4.2.0.51.Laptop is XP pro sp2Most places Ive read say that the standard modem (with the RIM com port) should be there, but it isnt in my case. I go ahead to add it manually, and the only options are: comms cable btwn 2 PCs and parallelcable btwn 2 PCs. Ive tried the comms one, added it as a modem, inputted the extra init commands (in my case, Ive put generel.t-mobile.uk as my APN i think thatll work?).Now when i go to add the network connection, it keeps giving me the default PC modem and no option to change modems. In DTM, theres a com port available but its the default PC one not any of the RIM ones (Hope Im making sense).Im with T-mobile (UK), I hope that anyone out there can help me!Thanks guys!

    I think I know what's wrong. My windows doesn't have the standard modem drivers install! Now I'll have to go search for the on my windows CD!
