    I have a friend that is trying to get PDAnet working with their Ally. However their PC is not reconizing there phone. Any suggestions on getting this to work? Dummy proof instructions would be great.

    Thanks,

    Mojo

    I use it nearly everyday, these are the steps I take:

    1- connect via usb cable
    2- open menu>settings>applications>development and enable usb debugging (you only need to do this the first time unless you disable it)
    3- start pdanet app on the phone and select "enable usb tether"
    4- in the running services section of the taskbar on the laptop, right click the pdanet icon and select "connect" and then it does its verification and authenticity checks and there ya go.

    I've never had a problem using these methods but I have read that many people do have problems. If that still doesn't work make sure you have installed the lg drivers which can be found at their website.

    I use it occasionally and it works every time. Used it many times last week on vacation with no internet or wireless access, PDANET worked perfect!

    If you have issues getting your pc to recognize your ally, go to the home screen,check for the usb icon in the notifications bar, unmount your storage (who knows why maybe restrictions on port numbers) you don't need a drive for the ally.
    Bottom line w/o a specific driver to assign ports , the usb works only one device at a time

    I was trying to get this working on my mother-in-law's Ally. Every time you connect the phone to a computer (both her Windows 7 and my brother-in-laws XP laptop), the phone does not say "USB Connected". It's like it doesn't even see the connection.

    It seems to be a problem with the Ally, as I've read other places similar behavior.

    We use PDAnet on my Droid X and on my mom's Ally. It works pretty well. Make sure you have USB debugging turned on. I had issues with drivers with the LG, and had to download them from the LG site.

    I think it depends on your version of windows too. My gf had some issues, too. I got it working on my droid so I tried to get it working on her phone. It sort-of worked. She could get online with it but her computer would be stuck on "installing drivers", and eventually failed due to some error there (and yes I did download the latest drivers).

    I eventually just rooted her phone using UniversalAndroot.apk, and she's off and running using Barnacle Wifi Tether (which DOES work with Android 2.1!)

    Debugging may be activated. Check it at Settings > Application Settings > Development. Make sure USB debugging is unchecked.

    hey lalea1860 I'm new so I'm not sure what PP and data less means exactly.but if u have downloaded the software on ur pc and have it running on ally go to network and sharing center in your pc and go to pdanets connection should look like a modem in your network conmnections and rightclick on it go to advance settings and enable sharing if it won't let u a friend of mine had to turn his windows firewall off but I'm not telling. U to do that.r u just wanting to surf or game?remember this is verizon and texts or calls will kick the connection.hope this helps fell free to ask if u need more info!!oh!phone has to be in debugging mode to access this you go to phone menu,settings,applications,development,then check debugging mode.

    Page plus is PP...data less means I have no browsing capabilities. I am hoping I can use wifi at my friends house.
    Chip, what I want to do is download astro file mgr, and universal androot to my phone as I can not go online on my phone cos I am data-less! LOL And it doesnt seems to transfer from my SD card either.
    I blue toothed my old LG with my new phone and they did Pair/connect. I was trying to download my contacts to my new phone. It said it was transmitting, 10 at a time, but it did not show up on my new ally.
    I am having technical difficulties out the ying yang! LOL
    Do you think pdanet will assist me to get files from my PC to my phone?

    Ohhhh ok well I don't think it will work wo a network connection being it uses ur phone like a modem and runs ur cpu browser off verizons 3g network.that said if u try to connect it to a open wifi connection I don't know if it will piggyback and xfer ur contacts or not.I bluetoothed my contacts and then couldn't find them it did 250 people kn like 2mins.I used thinkfree office to find them.u did wat I would've done with the sd card.this is off subject but have u had ne problems with getting video texts that don't play?I installed handcent and they played fine but after update they play in top left corner now.reinstalled I'm gonna see about getting an older version of handcent maybe that will work or uninstall update just curious it very aggravatging!!
