Default tethering with a cable to a mac?

Please Login to Remove!

first of all i have searched everywhere for the answer and havent found anything.

secondly, has anyone been able to tether a bold to a mac using the sync cable? i have it set up thru b/t but only see speeds of around .3mb/s down! i see everyone else is usually around a 1mb/s-ish. i am in a great 3g coverage area and its connecting thru 3g. anyone have any answer to get it to work thru a sync cable or boost my speeds?!

thanks in advance

Welcome.

You may want to check in the Mac Users Corner to see if others have gotten this to work.
