I don't have "my" computer in front of me so i can't give a step by step.

But the basic idea is you use control panel's network options, "make a new connection" wizard and set it up to do Dial Up networking using the GPRS modem. This will add an icon to your desktop.

Then whem your ready to make such a connection, you double click that new icon. It will establish a GPRS connection and voila, you're on the Internet.

OMG FINALLY!!!! IT WORKED!!! wow FINALLY i was on a binge for like 2 days figuring this out.. heres what I did

Installed Motorola USB driver (*supplied on cd, or website here HERE )

created a Dial up connection through windows (XP sp2)

phone number = *99#

username: [email protected]

password: CINGULAR1

Next go to Control Panel>

Phone and Modems>

click on Motorola USB ... >

Properties > Advanced tab >

type +CGDCONT=1,"IP","apn_name" (*Replacing apn_name with your APN like WAP.CINGULAR <<NOTICE THE UPPERCASE!)

DONE try to connect.. worked for me! (mpx220 cingular CA w/laptop XP sp2)
