Do you have Activesync 4.5 (or Windows Mobile Device Centre 6.1 if using Vista) installed?

No. Make sure you have WMDC 6.1 and in Mobile Device Settings, Connection Settings, the "this computer is connected to" should be on auto, but if that doesnt work then try "internet" - but if its a work network with a proxy server, then it will actually add the proxy settings to your device and you will need to remove them later when trying to connect over another network.

Set it to work connection and it works brill. The only thing that can't connect is the weather app on the main home screen. Thats ok though.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Paul, I just joined and this is my first post. I tried the above settings in Active sync on my xp laptop and still cannot connect to the internet via usb. Is it different than WMDC and Vista?
