    Hi,
    I have an Optimus GT540, and whenever i plug it into my pc, my wifi dongle stops working, and thus, the internet stops working as well.

    Can anyone help please?

    Cheers, Thomas

    Firstly, welcome to androidforums.com! :)
    It seems that i'm not the only one with this problem. :p
    Anyway, I think this has something to do with the LGE Virtual Modem.
    1. Go to then Device Manager in Windows. (right-click computer --> Properties --> Device Manager for me in Vista)
    2. Double-click "Modems". You should see something like this:

    3. Right-click on the "LGE Virtual Modem" and select disable.
    4. Try plugging it in now, does your wifi dongle stop working?
    5a. If yes, then try restarting the computer.
    5b. If no, then you've fixed the problem! :D
    Hope this helps. :)
