For starters, you need to install the DM to your laptop which includes device manager and the necessary drivers for tethering your BB. Once you do that go here to configure your BB as a modem.

Go here https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

Pick a version of DM, I'd recommend 4.7
Download it
Install it by click on the file you downloaded.

You are on Windows OS, yes?

In addition, you can find pretty much all the answers the the questions you've asked thus far at BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ. I would recommend taking a look there.
