Hello. I have a friend with a G1 running Andriod, and he can tether his Wifi connection to his PC using his phone, basically using the phone as a USB Wifi adapter. I am trying to do the same thing with my HTC Dash running WM 6.5 and I am running into difficulties. I have been searching around for 2 days now and am about to give up.
I recently moved, and I left my USB wifi adapter for my PC behind. Also the phone has no cell data plan, so I can only use Wifi on it, thus I can't just tether a 2G or 3G network.
So the is connected to my PC running Windows 7 just fine. In the Network Connections area I even see a Windows Mobile Remote Adapter when the phone is connnected thru USB. On the phone, I have it connected to the Wifi connection just fine, but in the Internet Sharing app for the phone I have no network to choose from even though the wifi connection is live and fine.
In my searching I found a lot about tethering a cell data network (that seems like cake), and also turning my phone into a Wifi hotspot. This information hasn't been able to help me though.
If any one can help me out, it would be great. I don't really have the money at the moment to get a decent new wireless adapter for the PC.
Thanks in advance for any help given.
