So I had to reload my laptop last night.. and I am trying to figure out exactly how I had set up tethering on my HTC Touch Pro (Verizon).. I am 95% certain I did NOT use the bundled Verizon software to initially set up the phone on my laptop.. I used something else just built into Windows 7... or set it up outside of the Verizon software... and I did NOT have to use Verizon software to enable tethering either - I know that or 100% sure.
I found and loaded a modem driver (WModem Driver) for the phone off a HTC/Verizon related forum, put the phone into 'Modem link' mode, hooked up the USB cable, then I had a network connection under my 'Connect to' in Windows 7 for "Verizon" which turned on the tethering -- All that connection did was dial a 3 digit code.. like #223 or something.. I don't remember the specific numbers though.
I have the driver reinstalled.. Windows 7 sees my phone.. Mobile device center sees my phone.. but I can't remember how I created that connection to Verizon (the connection that dialed the 3 digit code to enable tethering)... I just need to get that network connection for Verizon set back up Windows and that's where I am getting stuck.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about??
