    Tethered Modem Speed (Optimization)

    Advertisement



    My 8100 is connected as a modem through an old PIII 1.2 ghz w/USB 1.0. I'm wondering if I will be limited to modem speed due to the older USB spec? Also, are there any tricks to configure/optimize modem speed? My ultimate goal is to obtain 384K (whenever TMO goes to 3G) hopefully in 1st quarter of 2007. Thanks.

    I've got the 921K set already. Just wondering if there were any other settings/tweaks anywhere. FYI- I'm using XP.

    Hi I just bought a Pearl with Data plan. How do i connect my pearl to the laptop and use it as a modem? If i do connect would it cost my minutes or just data? (with data plan = free net use?)

    Thanks

    I dont think it is possible with T-mobile. With Cingular I runs around $77 just for the data plan....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~You can tether your BB with T-Mo they don't charge.

    There should be a thread about it in the 8700 forum same instructions for pearl.

    You never really going to get more than 40-100k at best with real world testing. In fact I hardly ever get better than a 56k modem with my uses.
