However, I do get an IP address once connected via tethered modem.
All Internet connections have an IP address. Some IP addresses are from a private class, while others are from a public class. Regardless of class all devices which have Internet access will have a IP address during the connection time (BB tethered modems included)
As an experiment while connected using your tethered modem visit whatismyi.com
Further information can be obtained form going to the command line of Windows Start-> run -> cmd -> "enter"
At the prompt type: "ipconfig/all" hit enter
