Question about HTC Shadow Smartphone
I am trying to get the internet sharing to work on my Shadow to use it as a wireless modem for my computer. I can get the active sync to recognise my phone but when i try and use it as the modem the phone says "check usb cable" i already went out and replaced the cable. When i follow the appropriate steps to get the internet sharing to work the hardware wizard comes on on my computer and when i choose to install it tells me "the driver installation for this device is missing a necessary entry. This maybe because the INF was written for windows 95 or later. Contact your hardware vendor" I have already called t-mobile and been on the phone with them for hours at end. still no solution. I am running xp on the computer now...already ran a bunch of windows updates....any assistance would be helpful :D
Download ActiveSync 4.5 from Microsoft.
Do not connect the phone to the PC via USB yet.
In the phone, goto Internet Sharing, select the internet connection and select "USB", and click connect.
Afterwards, connect the USB to the PC.
Wait up to 30 seconds and vola! You have internet access.
