Yes get the moto drivers installed and that should help. But i'm not sure cause I'm tethered as we speak with no moto drivers. A paradox.....

Does your laptop have wireless? If so just go with out a usb its always easier for me.

You need to download the Motorola USB drivers.

Sounds to me like you need a tethering app. I have used pdanet which is free...but after the trial period you can't go to any secure sites. Which means no facebook, online banking or anything like that. Usbtether is an option as I recall. What phone do you have?

I have found that it has been a much more enjoyable experience using barnacle or wifi tether after I rooted my phone. But that's not for everyone.
