    After following the WIKI, all I can manage is 'This device cannot start. (Code 10)'

    Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

    Thanks for this. But just FYI, this does not appear to work in Vista x32. Vista won't install the driver.

    pre dev wiki: USBnet networking setup
    Still don't have OS X 10.5 working yet, or DNS resolution on windows. But SSH works fine. I assume OpenBGP's suggestion works fine as well. Jack87, if you can let me know if the the usb0 interface shows up in 10.4, that would be great. Thanks guys.
    Just to confirm. i need to enable usbnet on the pre as root (i used my winxp 32 bit laptop to do this) then ifconfig shows me usb0 at 192.168.0.202 and usb0:1 at 192.168.2.101

    now i connected i via usb to the mac osx 10.4.11

    in the preferences under network all i see is built in ethernet two parallels network adapters and one airport. nothing for the pre. Am i doing something wrong or is it just not working?

    i to am getting the same thing on winxp pro 32bit

    Update:

    Third time is a charm i guess... i tried three times and it started working after the third.. dont know why

    Update 2:
    So i tried connecting to the pre using putty and ssh with no luck. it is showing that i am connected to the usb network. i did configure the tcp ip settings. funny thing is it shows the network twice and same name very odd. but when i configured the tcp ip for one it automatically put the same settings in the other

    Update 2.1:

    Ok silly me i was trying to connect to putty using my computer's ip haha (192.168.0.203) as i fixed it to 192.168.0.202 and ran the tether.sh file after connecting via ssh it started working like a charm... for the dns i used the two following which were recommended for my sprint ip.

    204.74.97.104
    209.213.196.218

    Thanks again emkman you rock....... as for the mac 10.4 still no luck any ideas of what i should try?

    It would appear that /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward is being reset by the PmConnectionManager service. The workaround to this is rather trivial:
    stop PmConnectionManager

    However, I'm guessing this process must do something other than just watch ip_forward, so I would turn it back on when you are done tethering.

    so when i am tethering it seems to work for awhile then stops loading the pages then all of a sudden i t may just come back but maybe more often then not it does not continue to work

    Try running "stop PmConnectionManager" while tethering. When you are done, "start PmConnectionManager"

    Yeah my system picks it up and everything. Driver installed fine. Didn't have any issues until this. I tried the DNS servers you listed too. Still doesn't work. Not sure whats going on.

    have you rooted your pre connected by ssh and created and ran the tether.sh script?

    Root your phone (use the wiki linked in this thread several times)
    Connect using Personal Area Network (PAN - bluetooth)
    Most technical part:
    using putty or ssh, connect to Pre (over ip 10.1.1.10)
    log in as the user id you created when you root'ed your phone
    type 'sudo su -'
    type your password

    First time only:

    type 'vi tether.sh'
    hit the letter i
    paste this portion of fish199902's code:

    #---------------- begin code --------------------------

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE

    while true; do
    # This value resets iteself to 0 periodically, anyone know why?
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    sleep 10
    done

    #---------------- end code --------------------------

    hit esc
    type ':wq'
    hit enter

    this should have created a file called tether.sh with the code from above in it, and those steps are a one time only event.

    type '. ./tether.sh' and hit enter
    you should now be able to surf the web without setting up proxies on your laptop. In the future, you only need to connect to pan - putty/ssh to the phone and run tether.sh as root. - hope that helps
    you have to do the steps listed above while being logged in via ssh

    but before your run then tether.sh file type 'stop PmConnectionManager' then when you are done tethering in the putty screen hit Ctrl+C then type 'start PmConnectionManager'

    Just a quick FYI: It would appear that PmConnectionManager is important if you wish to continue using the data connection on your Pre as well. If you leave PmConnectionManager stopped, the browser will complain that you don't have a data connection and insist that you turn on WiFi.

    It would be great if someone with the appropriate knowledge could find out what bit to toggle in the PmConnectionManager binary so that it would stop trying to reset ip_forward.

    you know i noticed that its not too bad though because browser still loads pages after you ignore it.. although after tethering i am planning on turning it back on. now the nice thing would be if someone wrote an app with a switch like the dev mode app that would run both the sh script and turn on/off the pmconnection manager so you dont have to do it in a terminal

    i did it with the PmConnectionManager turned stopped... with it on it doesnt work really well. if that doesnt work then it may just be your location.. i am also doing it through usb not wifi or BT
