My friend and I are going on a road trip next week and I was really excited to find out I could use my phone as a modem for my laptop on the road. I thought that was such a cool feature. I tried it out today and it worked like a charm. After messing with it for a little while I disconnected it and went about my business. Then every minute I got a pop-up Windows box saying there was an error connecting to the dial-up BB modem. I kept changing the settings hoping that the pop-ups would decrease but they never did. I finally said "eff it" and went to my network settings and removed the Standard modem from the list. But I kept getting the same pop-up error. Now I can't use the BB as a modem at all. I can't get the Standard modem option back under the Phone And Modem Options in my Control Panel.
I welcome any and all suggestions, thanks for putting up with a long-winded newbie!
Go to Control Panel Internet Options, or open Internet Explorer and choose Tools Options and go to the connections Tab. Highlight the connection that is for the cell modem connection and choose "Never Dial". This should stop the popup.
