Question about HTC Shadow Smartphone

1 Answer

Shadow not connecting on internet sharing..

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

    I've been having the same trouble just the last few days. I use the internet sharing almost every day, then about three days ago it stopped working. Nothing was changed on my phone or my PC, it just doesn't work any more. Will try the ActiveSync unistall/install, but perplexed why it just quit working.

Ways to connect or access internet below :

When you connected your Diamond to your PC, what did it get recognized as?
What does it show up as in your PC's Device Manager?
On your device, do you have Internet Sharing or Wireless Modem? If it is Wireless Modem, after you connect your device to your PC, you Start Wireless Modem and that should install the Modem Drivers.
If you have Internet Sharing, what is the message you get on the device after tap connect (Check USB, Disconnected, etc.)?

Try updating active sync software to the latest, at least 4.5 I'd think. Not sure if there's a newer version out.


Also,
Connect your phone to your pc by using the USB cable provided with your phone. On your phone you should go to Window Icon at top left corner of screen, then go to Programs on the drop down menu. From there choose Internet Sharing. Once you tap Internet Sharing you will be prompted at the bottom left of the screen to Connect. Tap Connect and then you will see your pc recognize the connection on the bottom right of computer screen. It will install the drivers and then from there you are good to go. Hope this helps!

Thank you for contacting FixYa

2. In the PC Connection list, select USB.
3. In the Network Connection list, select the name of the connection that your device uses to connect to the Internet.

I have tried and tried and cannot connect to the internet on my dell axim x51. Any solutions?


This depends entirely on how you are connecting to the internet.

If you are using wireless in your house, make sure its not protected with WPA encryption, change the wireless encryption to WEP if you are using encryption. - for wireless wlan you would need a add-on Wireless adapter. if you are using bluetooth, then the settings on the computer - internet connection sharing is probably not turned on.

I can't go into detail now since this is complex and I don't have much information to work from.

this device is not easy or simple to get connected to the internet without connecting it to your computer with a data cable. with a data cable it should work instantly, if not then some settings might need to be changed.

You can now access the Internet on your computer. While using your phone as a modem, you will not be able to access the phone's storage card or synchronize your phone.
To Turn it Off

  1. Press HOME > MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless controls.
  2. Clear the Mobile network sharing check box.
Reply back if it works. I am damn sure this shud work.

Share internet connection


Connect the HTC to your desktop through USB. On the HTC: Programs >Internet Sharing. Choose USB under PC Connection.  Choose My Connection (or whatever name you have given for your internet connection) under Network Connection. Click: Connect.
Of course, for this to work you must have an internet connection (GPRS or Edge) on your mobile.

Wireless internet


Basicly the wireless router needs to be connected into the internet, then you will be able to connect to it. You need to install the card and make sure it works in your device, then connect into the router and it should work fine.

Wireless router


No, but if you hook up a computer connecting to the internet through that phone line to the router, i think you can share that internet connection with the pocketpc. Reply With Quote
