USB Tethering? (cell phone internet)
Posted 21 November 2011 - 08:18 PM
but bot a couple of powerhouse Dell Desktops from work... and cannot get the "tethering" to work... tmobile claimed I had to sign up for some 14.99 tethering plan.. but that did not change.
POINT OF Question:
Does anyone use a USB Wireless Adaptor on their desktop computer?
I found a really inexpensive one at Best Buy and was curious if anyone uses something like this - thanks in advance.

You can use a USB wireless adpater, I use them at work in places where a cable is not available.

yeah, I could not FNG believe it when I called them... and they upsold me on that... I was so frustrated I said FINE. then they said it would take two hours to kick in.
I called back in the morning and they could not get the tethering to work, so I said you know what, forget it... cancel it.. they were like OK, you've only been charged 50 cents.
I laughed and chimed in about how sweet of them to only charge me 50 cents for something that NEVER worked.
Oddly enough, they also claimed for me to connect wirelessly to my laptop was also a part of this charge and I've been doing that for months, and it works after the cancel.
OK, cool. wireless adaptor it is.
oh you missed quite an evening at DSO the other night.... my pals were OUT OF CONTROL... the one boston boardizen who came down to meet us on the free ticket may have endured more "hugs" from my friend then he might of liked.
we sold the others for 20 a pop.
good show though

my phone has a "tethering" option
I'm thinking it's because of XP? so the driver is: tetherxp.inf
but no matter what I do, it's not recognizing the driver, or something.. so fuck it.

yeah it needs the right driver. You can install it before you attach the hardware, I believe
