    Hi All,

    I am using my HTC Desire HD with USB Teethering in an attempt to connect my Desktop computer to the internet.

    HTC Sync, drivers, etc are installed onto my Windows 7 x64 Desktop.

    However I am only getting an intermittent internet connection. Sometimes the phone & windows play nice (and I can browse the web) and sometimes they don't (which usually results in me browsing the ceiling and cursing!).

    Here is an IPCONFIG output from an instance when I was not able to browse the web:

    Code (Text):

    Here is a screen shot of the same occassion:

    [​IMG]

    As can be seen above an I.P. address is being obtained, and Windows
    knows that a "HTC Remote NDIS based Device" is connected. It simply
    won't accept the presence of a valid network connection, and as a result
    it refuses to let me browse the web or do anything remotely useful
    with the "pseudo-connection".


    Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks


    David

    Hi.

    This is not a problem I have bumped into before, however. Just looking over the information posted and the "screenshot", it seems to me there is no problem with Windows itself and the connection to the phone. Windows even states it has over 400 MB/s connection to the phone.

    I think, it might be an app running on your phone, that when "connected" overrides your USB connection, removing the internet connection from the USB, meaning your phone can't give the computer internet.

    Have you tried shutting down all apps that use internet actively when connecting your phone?

    Say a download of an update or something that constantly pulls data (random syncs by active sync and weather update shouldn't matter really, you'd only lose internet for a few seconds tops when they run)?

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your input.

    I did find a solution with PdaNet.

    Download PdaNet

    Once the program is intalled on your computer you can navigate to the installation folder and find the PdaNet.apk file that needs to be installed on your phone.

    As a result there is no need to use the Android Market, if you don't want to.

    THIS SOFTWARE RULES!!!!

    Cheers
