4.Click the Advanced tab

6.Hit Okay, and close device manager.
I'm using XP Pro, not Vista, so this may account for the difference, but when i do this, my standard modem is only available on COM1, not USB. How do I create a modem which will use USB, instead of a serial (COM) port?

EDIT: I discovered that I have a second "standard modem" which is on COM6. I don't know why, but it works. I'm successfully tethering on ATT using my new Bold, using "extra initialization command" AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","WAP.CINGULAR", dialing number *99#, username ISP@CINGULARGPRS.COM and password CINGULAR1
