    Hi all!

    Is there anyway to connect a PC to the web using my Galaxy's data connection? Do I understand correctly that I have to use NPS?Is it the only way? Even after downloading the latest version it still says my "Device is not supported" and I can't access that option.

    you can make standard dial up connection, like any else (select samsung as phone modem) but you will have problems with connection (traying to connect serval times).

    azilink is the quickest, easiest tether for those without root access.

    Yes. The other methods require root and kernel changes.

    I'm sorry, as someone who uses adb and openvpn on a regular basis, it seemed very easy to me. I suppose compared to a simple dialup connection as can be used with other phones, it is very complex.

    Well, I have manged to connect my I7500 to internet on ATT network using standard USB modem driver.

    I have ..G8 ROM version on Galaxy, phone is not rooted; Windows Vista

    Here is how I did it:

    1. Install NPC. (I got latest version from German O2 site, search this forum for link). NPC never worked properly for me but it installs ton of drivers, including modem driver.

    2. My settings on Galaxy: USB debugging mode - ON; Mass Storage Only - OFF

    3. Connect phone via USB, let it auto install all relevant drivers

    In Device Manger, you should now see Samsung USB Modem device.

    4. Create new dial up connection using Samsung USB modem with following data for ATT network:

    [FONT=&quot]phone number = *99#

    username: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM

    password: CINGULAR1[/FONT]

    Voila, happy browsing! (if only you i could do 3G on ATT

    Has anyone had any success with teatherbot??? I cant get this to work, but would be interested to know if anyone else had. If you did, what firmware/csc etc have you got? What did you do different to the Gude linked to here??

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Wireless Tether for Root Users. It comes standard with the Galaxo and GalaxHero ROMs, and it's trivial to connect: start the app, hit the Wifi button, and the Galaxy becomes a wireless access point. You don't need NPS or a USB cable.

    Of course, you do need to install one of these custom ROMs, but they're awesome to have anyway. I use GalaxHero, which is exactly like Galaxo, but with an HTC Hero-like skin.

    Try unplugging all unnecessary usb devices before installing the PDANET. I couldn't get it to install until I unplugged my scanner and Bluetooth usb dongle then plugged it into one of the primary USB ports (on the back of the computer, not on the front or on a peripheral device). I am guessing that the galaxy is a real power hog and needs all the juice it can get from the USB port.
