    Vortex, XP, and Tethering

    I can't get my vortex to tether with my Dell 630. What are the drivers I need to use????
    I'm running windows XP.

    Uh Oh

    Thanks, but I downloaded the driver you suggested, the computer still says it can not find the required driver. So, I still can not tether to my computer running XP.

    My bad... Those are the usb drivers. I believe to tether you either have to pay Verizon to turn it on or use one of the programs like EasyTether or PDAnet which cand be picked up off the Market. They both have test drive periods so you can try them out. I use PDA net and it seems to work fine.

    Disapointed

    I can tether just fine with my Windows 7 laptop, but the XP does not work. I tried PDA Net, and it still could not find the driver. With windows 7 it worked with no downloads or anything.

    I really don't gain anything personally by rooting. I have pdanet for the rare occasions I need to use my phone as a modem and have never had an occasion where I could have even had a use for wireless tether should I need it.

    Due to a combination of things with the Vortex, I got Verizon to swap me out for a Droid X that is in the mail now. They messed up telling me what the Vortex would and would not do so I finally got it worked out to get a phone that will. I am not one of those guys who will try to get a free upgrade just because I can, but I am filing for disability and have no extra income right now. I would not have taken the Vortex had my questions on capabilities been answered properly. I worked in IT for 20 years and spec'd phones for company use so I am quite aware of what my needs are. I asked the right questions and got the wrong answers from a Verizon rep when I added the line. They are making it right, so cool.

    Hmm... I don't seem to have PDAnet as an option nor Wireless Tether in the market.
