    Of course you'll no doubt pay an arm and a leg for data usage with Bell, or at least that's the impression I have of Canadian wireless providers.

    Hi all.

    Can someone help me figure this out?

    I am tethering by USB from my laptop. I followed the instructions and it works great... For a while.

    What happens is that after some random amount of time (might be 5 minutes, might be 45), the connection just dies and won't come back. In order to get it to work again I have to reboot my laptop, at which point the Linux ethernet/rndis gadget under network adapters has the yellow exclamation point and I have to tell it to use the usbnet-pre.inf driver all over again. Then I disable palm novacom and everything works again, for a while.

    I don't think the pre is losing signal, because it is always showing EV in the bar when it goes down and it always comes back when I do the above.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks much.

    It might depends on your exact OS and chipset. My EEE running EEEbuntu loves the Pre Wifi. But my Sony under Mandriva hates it- it will show the AoNet but cannot connect to it no matter what.

    Does nobody read previous posts first?

    They *did* disable the wifi function with 1.2. It was confirmed by several people so far, from what I have read in several threads. It is supposedly blocked/changed at the DRIVER LEVEL, probably blocking adhoc completely. If this is what happened, it will be EXTREMELY difficult to restore.

    And unfortunately, that is probably the end of useful tethering for me.

    Some systems will not list/show adhoc mode networks at all. 99.9% of the time, people want to connect to a managed mode network, like a Linksys. All access points are used in managed mode.

    OK, I have MYTether installed but never used it yet. Just never found the time. Or real need yet. I did make my donation just to support the developer.

    But now that the new WebOS is coming out, I have tried to read as much back messages as I thought necessary to find the answer but I could not.

    So my question: Should we UNINSTALL MyTether, whatever version we are using before the update?

    And from what I read, it's going to break (a permanent break) anyway, so I guess I just answered my question.

    Thanks Rob

    you do not need to remove mytether for 1.2 it will not hurt the update. it is not changing any system files so there is no risk of bricking pre.

    Hmmm how do you get it back on after you turn it off?

    chmod -x UpdateDaemon

    turns it off, but from what I understand...


    chmod +x UpdateDaemon

    ... turns it back on.

    See this thread

    thanks jhoff80!!

    the original version of my tether required you to install internal's usbnet onto the pre to work with the mytether program. Does that need to be removed for the 1.2 update?

    No Word Doc editing, No Blue Tooth Push (OBEX), No direct PDF in browser abilities, NOTHING that actuially benefits the world of business or research. A bunch of crappy superficial "features" rushed out just to make Palm falsely look responsive and to do away with tethering.

    The only halfway decent thing in 1.2 is the enhanced copy and paste, and that still didn't look fully refined. None of that crap is worth losing MyTether or my Tweaks. NO WAY.

    You are mistaken "No direct PDF in browser abilities," is now available with 1.2. Along with many browser enhancements and additions. Such as being able to download files in the browser now.

    You may also still tether it only breaks the WiFi mode, and almost if not ALL Tether type setups are directly wired or bluetooth. You rarely see a WiFi mode, infact the instinct used USB and Bluetooth Tething. WiFi was a added gift. If anything this could have been blocked for security reasons rather then killing tethering. Otherwise the hole thing would have died. All these applications and programming are publicly available.

    Sorry, that's not correct. Many people, including me, ONLY use the WiFi mode to tether. On some Macs, for example, the USB mode doesn't work.

    I also use the WiFi method. I couldn't get the USB method to work. I haven't tried bluetooth as of yet.
