    The only way to tether 3G is on a Mac, are you using a 3G iPhone, or the 1st Gen?
    A Thanks is always nice =]

    3G.. and there are plenty on the forum tethering 3G phones and xp.. so, not sure you're right.

    Just want to know if there's an issue with Vista 64 bit and tethering.

    Been tethering fine and dandy with vista 32 here.

    As far as setup, I used Firefox, setting up the proxy settings as advised in the directions as follows:

    in the address bar type "about:config" (without the quotes)

    and change to the following settings:

    network.proxy.socks;192.168.10.1
    network.proxy.socks_port;1080
    network.proxy.socks_remote_dns;true

    works for me...

    Doesn't look like its working on my vista 64 PC - I'd say that its only 32 bit OS.
