I have a Compaq laptop running windows 7 and a Desire that I want to tether (via USB). HTC sync (latest version) is installed, and I have checked with Orange who tell me my package allows this, but they don't support Android phones. I have set the phone to Internet Sharing and its all enabled. The internet works fine on the phone. The laptop recognises the phone and gives it network adaptor status, but not a lot else. I've tried to set it as a home, work or public network, but it never gets internet access. I've switched off my firewall (Dit Defender) which made no difference. The troubleshooter eventually states "The DNS server is not responding" I can't find anything on the forums, so any tips or things I'm missing?
