    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    Because you have rooted I have moved your thread to the appropriate forum.

    If you could provide just a little more information, it would allow us to help you better. When you say you had tethering, was it using a feature provided by your carrier or were you using Android's native tethering options? Were you tethering with a USB cable or using your phone as a Wifi hotspot? Fnally, what country are you in? In some countries (U.S. especially) tethering requires carrier plans to be enabled. Rooting may disable them.

    And i am from India.

    When you rooted your phone, did you enable USB debugging? That may prevent wired tethering from connecting.

    Yes i had to because it was mandatory for rooting. Also i was on Ubuntu when i first tried tethering. Does windows 7 require any additional drivers to allow tethering?

    Not that I know of.

    Disable USB debugging now that you're rooted and see if tethering will work for you.
