Angry Cingulars 7100g as Laptop Modem

Please Login to Remove!

Okay I'm trying to configure my 7100g as a modem for my laptop. I use to have my LG from VZW setup like this for backup purposes and I'd like my BlackBerry setup for the same reasons.

I'm looking through the FAQ on this and unfortunately i'm getting stuck at the beginning. I can't install the modem. When I try to add the modem and look through the available modem drivers there isn't anything listed for the blackberry. I have the Standard 9600-56000 Modem ones and a Standard Juniper Modem (work VPN) but nothing else. When I installed the BlackBerry Desktop Software it prompted me with the unsigned driver installation message about a modem driver but I can't find it anywhere.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Also I'm a little confused on the APN settings. I'm connected through a BES server here at work (heck I'm one of the admins of it). Do I need to change these settings or should it work fine?
