NOTE : There may be a charge to use your handset as a modem for your home PC

There are a number of ways to do this but to start off with you need to make sure that the handset itself can actually access the internet
Settings can be obtained from your network.
Once you have checked the settings with your network provider then the most simple way to connect is by USB. firstly we need to check that your phone is correctly setup

1. Go to the main menu
2. Select Settings
3. Press joystick left so that you get to the connectivity menu
4. Select USB
5. Select USB Internet
6. Select Turn on then OK
7. Select USB data accounts
8. In your list of accounts select the one that your network provider setup with you ( If it was already setup select the account that has interent after it , you may have a picture message or mms option do not select these it will not work )
9. Now return to your standby screen

That is your phone now setup.
Using the USB cable and sony erricson PC suite software included firstly install the software then connect the USB cable to PC and phone.
After a few seconds your phone will provide you with a list of options select phone mode. after a while you will see the globe symbol on your phone and your PC will show it is connected to the interenet . Happy browsing .

If you wish to connect by bluetooth please contact me and I can provide further help .

Hey when i am connecting samsung gt s3310 to pc then in pc it showz modem driver not installed


Its trying to connect your phone as a modem, which is pretty much useless now unless you have a dial-up internet account. If you want to use you phones 3G or 4G connection, you should connect you phone via WIFI to you computer and use the phones software to share your internet connection to WIFI.

Electricity went out in my home and now my computer will not connect to the internet. I checked with my internet server and the problem appears to be with the router. I have a D Link N150 home router. Can...


Ok...the first thing to try is to power everything down....modem, router, and PC.
Then power them back on in this order: Modem (wait for lights to go solid) then Router (again wait for solid lights) and then PC.

I am assuming you are trying to connect wirelessly. So if it's not working on wifi, try it plugged in using an ethernet cable. Make sure that the connection from your provider comes from the wall to your modem, then from your modem to router, and from the router to your PC.

If you can't get a connection wired, take the router out of the mix. Plug your PC directly into the modem. (rebooting them both in the same order that I mentioned above.)

If it works with the modem, then the problem is with your router. You may need to press the reset button for 30 seconds or so and start over with a fresh configuration. If the modem connection does NOT work, you may want to get on the phone with your providers support team to check the connection coming to your house.

Can I download modem on dell laptop


Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.


Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.

Answer:
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
  • your phone is a 3G capable phone
  • you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
  • your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.

I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.

Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.

If you mean connecting the handset to the PC and using it as a modem then if you make sure you have 3g switched on and have a signal then this will increase the speed . the 3g symbol is like a blue box with waves coming out of it ( when you see it you'll know what i mean ) its right next to the signal strength bars .
