    I have previously thethered my 7130 and 8830 blackberries on Telus with no issues. I'm on an unlimited data plan so no worries there.

    I broke my 8830 usb jack and upgraded to a Tour. Now I can't tether. I get a remote server not found error in windows.

    I have tried DM 4.5 4.7 and 5.0 with no success. Has anyone gotten this to work? I am using Windows 7 (8830 was working fine on win 7)

    I have been able to get tetherberry to work, but only if i completely uninstall DM and use the driver supplied with tetherberry (4.7, but no device manager or desktop manager). I don't really like tetherberry... it provides a proxy connection (it's basically a VPN) and speed is very variable compared to real tethering and it times out rather quickly.

    I am thinking of dumping the Tour and going back to either a Curve or 8830 if I can't get it to work because tethering is very important to me.

    Help!

    Has anyone solved this.. I had a blackberry curve on Telus and was tethering no problems. I'm using the same dial-up profile as i did with the curve #777 etc. I connect, my tour shows Modem mode enabled.. I get an IP, but not a gateway.. Which means I'm not able to get out to the net.

    try disabling "ip header compression" under the advanced settings of TCP/IP on your dial-up networking settings.

    also with current Desktop manager go to ip moden and choose the profile fire telus then hit connect DM will take care of all the settings. (telus has two profiles one for CDMA like your tour other to HSPA like bold 9700)
