    I have HTC Hero on T-mobile (UK)

    but while looking through my phone i found

    home/settings/wireless controls/mobile network sharing


    It allows you to share the network through USB.

    I works prefectly with my NBR ubntunu 9.04 on Acer Aspire One
    have yet to tried it on vista.

    I did a few google searches while connected and loaded up a few blogs.

    My HSPDA seemed to struggle with the forums (however fine on my phone itself)

    But it is good.
    And simple.

    Not sure if you guys know about this,
    :)

    Yes, but not that it worked on anything but Windows. Nice.... is it just 'plug-n-play' or is a hardware driver or some sort required? Another member was wondering about this under OS X.... maybe it's not the non-starter I thought it was.

    Cheers!

    You have to have HTCSync installed first on your PC for this to work. It recognises the phone as another network adaptor when it is tethered. HTCSync provides the drivers for the adapter. You can see it (when you are tethered) by looking in the PC's Device Manager.

    Haven't the faintest idea - other than buy a PC ;)

    Have you tried emailing HTC support to see what they say?
