    Anyone else have this problem, it is really ****ing annoying. Im trying to download a 4gig torrent and it seems if im not right here at the damn computer watching it, it will disconnect. If I leave for a while and come back the computer is disconnected from the internet. I have no Idea why it is doing this, all I have to do is hit connect and it connects again its not like I have to restart the program and everything for some reason it just keeps disconnecting after a period of time. Does it have something to do with it being the free version? Any help is appreciated.

    Personally I think it is something with pdanet and is the reason I stopped using it. It used to happen all the time with my palm centro, and same thing with the evo. Really annoying. Easy tether works good if you want to give it a shot. Easy tether has disconnected as well but maybe only once or twice and I have been using it since I got the Evo in June.

    I use easy tether (basically same thing) and I get random disconnects. I found out that if I use a different computer or different login, it is not as often. I also tried a different usb port and left a webpage open (thinking it might be timing out) on the same computer that was disconnecting often. That seemed to help out but it does still disconnect sometimes. What I ended up doing is just using a different computer that does not seem to disconnect very often. Was able to download ubuntu 10 the other day without a single disconnect. I have the full version by the way. Experiment a little and see if you can get it to be a little more useable. That is what I had to do. If you find out what the real issue is, I would be curious to know also.

    yup...did it to me the other night...i thought i was crazy....i don't think it is pda.net as my sd card was also not accessible and the phone stopped charging when pda.net would disconnect. it's like the phone itself decided to disconnect from the tether/usb connection.

    Have you tried putting your phone in performance mode to keep data syncing?
    Generally your data will turn off after ten minutes* of inactivity on your phone.
    Let me know if this helps! :D
