Default IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R61 - Can't use my BB 8700g for internet use

Please Login to Remove!

I have a IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R61 and a BB 8700g. I have been trying to tether it to BB and use it for the internet but is just doesn't work. This is a company machine but I have full access to do what I need to do. I have upgraded Bios, Desktop Manager to the current version and still nothing. I am using t-mobile and have the correct extra settings string - +cgdcont=1,”IP”,”” and AT+cgdcont=1,”IP”,”” still nothing.

I uninstalled the modem and added a standard 33600 modem followed all direction in the forum and still nothing.

But here is the strange thing, it works fine 0n my personal laptop. I went to the IBM website and it just doesn't have the info I am looking for can anyone help me with this problem?

What about updating the USB driver? I saw USB drivers on RIM's Rogers software download site. You could find the link to Rogers stuff in the 8100 forum's latest OS sticky thread.
