Default Tethered modem - Desktop Manager turns wireless off

Please Login to Remove!



Hello everyone

Couldn't find anything about this on any of the threads.

I've had a personal 8700g (TMO) for long time (on BIS). Used it as a tethered modem with no problems.

My work gave me an 8700c (AT&T) on a BES. So I thought I'd try to set it up as a tethered modem too.

Problem is as soon as I plug the 8700c into the comuter (with Desktop Manager running), the wireless is immediately turned off, and I cannot turn it back on until I unplug it from the USB cable. This only happens when the Desktop Manager is running.

The Desktop Manager I'm using is 4.2.2.14 that I had been using for my TMO BB.

Is this possibly a BES policy thing that is turning off the BB wireless?

Thanks in advance.

I was guessing that, but am afraid to ask IT

Didn't see that on any of the posts, and was thinking that a majority of folks on the board are BES users, and if that was the case, someone could confirm.

My next step over the next couple of days is to delete the Desktop Manager I have and install the new on that came with the BB, as my original one was installed for BIS only and not BES.
