    When USB cable is attached, there is an option to share using internet mode. I've not been able to use that :-( LG Verizon drivers are installed, in ethernet connections in windows 7 the connection is there, when phone was plugged to the laptop drivers installed fine. These devices just don't wanna talk.
    I've also tried easy tether with not much luck. Any ideas or other software suggestions? Thanks for your time.

    I use easy tether all the time for the last 2 years, what seems to be the problem with it?

    Did you put the phone in "Ethernet" mode?

    EasyTether is my fav for using the usb cable, but as finn said, you have to make sure you choose 'ethernet'. Even if it's selected, you have to choose it again to get it to recognize the connection.

    I tried using EasyTether as well, but I couldn't get it to run either. Granted, on setup it specifically told me to NOT enable the internet mode because it would only run through USB or charge mode... What version of the app do you guys have? Do you have an APK for it?

    Go try FoxFi, but make sure you get the 'addon' app... I've since shifted to FoxFi and have no problems. Also, it doesn't require a usb cable.

    Yeah I've used FoxFi, but even with the add on it had problems loading lots of pages, usually when they involve flash. Same with Wifi Tether (which seems to be more reliable in general for me). I wanted to try a wired tether option to see if that fixed my problem. I know it isn't a problem with service because my parents' Verizon hotspot loads the pages just fine that my phone seems to have a problem with.

    I've come across that too sometimes. What I've found is if I use foxfi for a pc connection, I have to avoid using the phone entirely... No sms, no updates, nothing. When the phone tries to do other things with the data connection, the foxfi connection craps out. But, it's the best I've found on this device... I see others with mixed results and prefer other apps.

    That describes my experience almost exactly; like I said for me Wifi Tether seems to do better at multitasking. Either way though, it doesn't the problem of being completely incapable of loading many flash (eg Facebook games). Any suggestions on that front?

    Sorry, no. I don't recall any issues loading flash with any tether apps.

    Emphasis on beautiful all mine; I was having problems with the install initially (USB drivers I think), but once I got it working it's fantastic. Plus, it's free. If I could thank you 20 more times I would; you've solved my tethering problems oHaE!

    PDAnet works great for me, too, but I don't like having to use my USB cable. If you don't mind the cable, that's really the app to go with, IMO.
