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
