    Default Tether help please
    Hi
    I have an iPhone 3G (3.0 FW) and I used the AT&T config file at help.BenM.at - Mobileconfigs für dein iPhone | BenM.at to enable tethering AND mms.

    I don't really need MMS but I want to use the tethering.

    PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME TO GO USE "PDANET" or any of the silmiar.

    I got tethering SETTINGS to work but when I plug my iPhone into my Windows Vista 64 bit laptop. it says "Device Driver failed" or something like that...

    And it won't work.. please help me!

    FYI: I had problems creating and connecting to ad-hoc networks on some Vista 64 systems with the iPhone. Never found the 64-bit solution since both Vista 32 and XP systems were available and worked immediately.

    I can't get it to work with my XP either.

    And, all the threads I find get onto MMS, which I don't need.

    I get the blue tethering bar but it doesn't show up on my computer as a wifi profile.

    Does your PC has BlueTooth?

    I've gotten it to work with Xp, but I didn't use Ben m. I have the tether option under network from the 4.0 & 5.0 AT&T carrier settings (ipcc) update. The system should automatically recognize it and connect. In your case create a network connection and set it up to share an Internet connection from another computer. There's an option for it. It'll ask you if you're going to connect to a gateway or another computer that connects directly to the web. That's your option. Hope that helps.

    I Don't get what's the fuzz about tethering right now, since speed for these are as slow as 512kb!

    please be for real, just wait a little bit, and have the $$$$ to paid for the service, on my PDA/Tether service (Samsung Encite sim on a iphone 3GS & 3G) I'm clocking 1.8mb

    This is using my girlfriend iphone 3G on the regular data service

    Yeah, that worked for me...thx.

    BTW...I am getting only 72Mb/s. That's slow but I just spent 3 days in a place with no wifi... 72 woulda been welcome there.
