    You could download VZAcess and plug in and see if install drivers you need , then just don;t use it?

    I found out about Easy Tether in the market and it works like a champ!! Even with the 4G issues in my area.

    I have the paid version of that, yeah works but was not allowing access to my VPN for work and other VPN I use, maybe there are settings, but none I could find, I also heard from the manager at verizon store he stopped using cause secure sites not working either? This the free or paid version?

    Free version blocks https, paid version does not.

    Still looking for a solution to the built in USB tether option.

    So brought laptop in, I do not think you can connect simply by going to internet connection mode, your only option is to disable the network connection, as I said I have easy tether Pro (paid Version) and free PDANet, but I think I might have figured out why could not get on secure and vpn sites, I did not check UDP passthrough, which I did not remeber seeing, maybe missed that, but some reason easy tether won't launch so I did a repair and rebooted. Nope easy tether won't open..I'm uninstalling, anybody else see this quirk?

    I'm not interested in 3rd party apps. Wired tether is built in under internet connection mode; I just can't get it to work because it needs a driver. The pass-through option is if you want to use your computer's wired connection for your phone. What I want is the opposite of that.

    Yes I know and why I brought my PC in for you, networking and wireless is what I do all day and the way you are going not working for me and not asking for a driver, the connection is there, only option is to disable, I don't know what elsethe thing wants tyo connect, I have played with firewalls and DNS, does not connect.....the pass through I'm not checking cause I can only connect right now tethered with easy tether or PDANet, or hook up my Blackberry and use desktop manager. sorry if anyone figures out, please share, should be cut and dry to me?

    Brad....read this carefully....maybe this is the secret, I am not in a 4 G area myself.

    The ThunderBolt has a feature called Internet Connection Mode, where you can connect the phone to your PC via a USB cable and use the 4G data network as the PC’s internet source. When doing this, we were able to use our FireFox web browser and run the regular SpeedTest.net web site. In doing so, we got a download speed of 11.53 Mbps and an upload speed of 6.50 Mbps with the ThunderBolt. We then removed it and used the LG VL600 modem, which gave us a download speed of 10.61 Mbps and an upload speed of 6.48 Mbps.

    Yes, that is the feature I have been talking about this whole thread. What I am trying to say is that when I try to use it, it asks me to install a driver, and if I try to let it automatically find a driver, it fails. I don't know what driver to use to get it to work, which is why I made the thread.
