I have recently got the Vario II and WnW Pro. However my laptop doesn't have bluetooth built in.
Is it possible to use the phone as a modem, either via the USB cable, or preferably over wifi?
Any help appreciated.
i'm not sure if this is possible over WiFi - i very, very much doubt it though!
Via USB = a piece of cake.
You'll need to grab the USBMDM drivers from somewhere first though.. i do not have them to hand!
Once you have those drivers, plug the USB into device, and then into PC. It will then look for the appropriate drivers. Direct Windows to where you have stored the USBMDM driver, and they shall be automatically installed.
If you have already introduced your device to your computer via USB, within Device Manager you should be able to update drivers. Once again point to where you saved the USBMDM drivers on your computer.
If that fails uninstall the hardware within device manger, and start again!
When the modem is installed, go to (on PC) -
Start, Control Panel, Phone and Modem Options
Select the Modems tab
In here you shall see the modem installed on a Com port
Highlight the modem and go to properties
Select the advanced tab. Here you can enter an "initilization command"
Type in - at+cgdcont=1,"IP","general.t-mobile.uk" (this IS CaSe specfic)
For anyone else reading who isnt on T-Mo, simply replace general.t-mobile.uk with your networks APN
Click on OK, and OK
Set up the connection -
In the Control Panel open Network Connections
Create a new connection
Within the Wizard -
Connect to the Internet
Set up my Connection Manually
Connect Using a Dial-up modem
Check the USB Modem on Com x and uncheck any others
ISP = [a friendly name]
Dial = *99#
Username = user
Password = pass
Uncheck to two boxes in here
Create a shortcut on your deskptop
You are now connected
Here is the driver -
