View Full Version : 8700g modem/google problem

When I try to access gmail or google on a laptop hooked to an 8700g the websites don't work. Anyone else have this problem?

From what I understand, tmobile doesn't support tethering and your trouble may be related to the web traffic having to pass through their blackberry servers.

Sure they support it. If they didn't then why is there a link on tmobile.com on how to hook up your bb as a modem. I was just wondering why it was these 2 specific sites I'm having problems with.

I remember this from howardforums.com
I think a mtu change fixed it for most. Check out
Someone there should know.

Changing the MTU worked. I googled it and then you sent your tip at the same time. Thanks for the help!
