USB Tethering with Windows XP
Just to make it clear, I'm not having the issue you may be thinking of. I've updated the 4 files mentioned in http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...tml#post699343 by following the second and the third option. After doing a search for the files, they seem to be updated.
The issue I'm experiencing is that my phone is not being connected to after enabling USB tether on my phone. I can look in the hardware and my Droid is listed under network adapters, but once I look at network connections, no connection is shown. That is only when the phone is connected of course, while not, its not shown anywhere.
This wasn't an issue prior to now because I've been using the wireless tether with my laptop. Unfortunately, after getting home from work tonight, I discovered it was dead. The CPU fan has stopped working and after messing with it for a good 90 minutes, I couldn't figure out a fix.
Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated. I've been messing with this for nearly five hours now and I'm just on the verge of giving up, but I can't. I have no other options for internet atm other than to connect my Droid to my desktop through USB. I was under the impression that it would auto detect the connection once it was turned on, but nothing is being shown, except in the Hardware tab of My Computer, where the Droid is listed as a Network Adapter. Currently using EasyTether to connect to post this message, but its lack of https:// has limited it for what I need the internet for. Any help is much appreciated, will need to have it working somehow come Thursday morning. :/
