    I just completed an effort of several hours to connect my Hero to my laptop to use it as a modem. In case somobody else is trying this is what I did.
    Turn on Phone
    Press Home
    Press Menu
    Select Settings
    Select Wireless Controls
    Select Mobile Network Settings
    Verify Enable always-on mobile is Selected
    Verify - Mode of operation is set at Hybrid
    Return to Wireless Controls Options
    Mobile network should be selected
    Plug USB cable form laptop to phone
    Mobile Network Sharing should light up
    Select Mobile Sharing Option
    Wait 1-2 minutes
    Open Internet Explorer
    Be patient, connection is significantly slower but it should work!!

    I hope this helps some people out there!
