I'm trying to use my KC910 as a cable tethered modem for my eeepc. Whilst it connects as a mass storage device I cannot see how to use it to connect through to the internet from the eeepc (running xp). I have the lg pc suite installed. Any 'make it happen' ideas?

When you tether with your Android-powered smartphone, you can connect to the Internet on your computer from any location covered by your cellphone service provider's network. Tethering allows your phone to act as a modem for the computer. Tethering applications such as Tether for Android allow you to set up tethering without the need to root your phone. Before tethering, check with your cellphone service provider to determine how much data you are allowed to use without incurring data charges. Excessive use of the Android phone as a modem can cause you to exceed your allotted data.
Search the Android Market on your phone for a tethering application. Applications such as EasyTether and PdaNet are available to download for free. Download the application from the Market. Installation begins immediately after the download. When installation finishes, an icon for the tethering app is placed on the Android's expanded home screen. Open a Web browser on the computer and access the site specified in the tethering application's description in the Market. Download and install the USB drivers needed to tether from the site. When installation is finished, an icon for the tethering application is placed on the computer's desktop. Tap "Settings" on your Android phone, then tap "Applications." Tap "Development" and enable "USB Debugging." When the field turns green, it is enabled. Connect the phone to the computer with its USB cable. Launch the tethering application on the phone. Launch the application on the computer. Click the option to connect to the Internet in the home screen. When the connection is established, confirmation is displayed in the status window.

The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.
Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:
Android phone Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system USB cable
You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.
The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.
Four popular Android tethering apps are:
PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app. EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone. Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted. Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.
(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)
Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.
Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.
There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!
Hi, Switch on the Mobile Internet from the settings->Wireless & Networks->Mobile Network->Data Enabled.[note: Connect the usb cable to the PC. Don't use it as Mass Storage.] Enable USB Tethering from the settings->Wireless & Networks->Tethering & Portable hotspot->USB Tethering.Now you can browse from PC via Optimus.
You can set your device as a wireless modem for PCs and share your device's mobile network connection via USB.
1 Using an optional PC data cable, connect the multifunction jack on your device to a PC.
2 In Idle mode, open the application list and select
Settings ? Wireless and network ? Tethering.
3 Select USB tethering to activate the USB tethering feature.
Your device will share the mobile network connection on your PC.
To stop sharing the network connection, clear the check box next to USB tethering.
The sharing method for the network connection.

The Alias 2 can, in fact, be used as an external modem to connect
your computer to the Internet. To do this, the phone must plug into the
computer via USB. The USB data cable specific for the phone is
purchased separately and can be found at most any cellular phone store and eBay. Because USB is a powered connection, anytime the phone is
plugged into the computer for use as a modem, it will also remain
charging, so you don't have to worry about battery life while online.
In addition to the cable, you must subscribe to a specific service
through your cellular provider in order to use the Alias 2 as a modem.
This plan will be a "tethering" plan and will have a separate charge
each month to use it, similar to a cell phone's data plan. By signing up
for this feature, your phone will be able to dial into the data network
and utilize the Internet connection as a modem, allowing any connected
computer to surf the Internet. Once this feature has been activated on
your account the option will become available on the phone itself to
At this point, you should be able to turn on
tethering, connect the phone to your computer via USB cable and select
the phone on your computer as an Internet connection source.
is important to note, however, that the Alias 2 uses a different and
slightly older system on the 3G cellular network. Because of this, using
the phone as an external modem will produce a slightly slower Internet
connection than a traditional modem or even a newer phone would.
However, as a backup solution for Internet connectivity or a travel
solution, the Alias 2 will work just fine as a modem for your computer
I currently cant get Att communication manager to recognize the phone is tethered, but i currently have my xp pro sp3 recognize the driver of the lg xenon.
From the main (touch) screen click on the 4 dots (menu)>then the gear (settings)>then select the gear that says "more +"> select connection (should be first option)>select "USB connection"> select "Data Service". NOW you plug in the data cable (dont plug it in before you do this!) and windows should auto pick up the driver for you.
My ONLY problem is getting the ATT communication manager to recognize the phone. it simply says "No wireless device detected". which is garbage because the device manager has no missing drivers and i saw the driver physically installed. anyone else having this problem too???
Depends what you want to do - if you're just moving files you don't need the PC suite...
Under Connectivity in the Settings screen, set the 'USB Connection Mode' to 'Mass Storage' and then when you plug the phone in to your PC the external drive will appear as another drive as if you'd plugged a USB stick in.
If you really need the Suite (and if you can avoid it: do - it's rubbish) I think you need to go here: http://uk.lgmobile.com and download the support tool, then you probably get the chance to download the PC Suite.
