    So I just upgraded to the 5.01 DM on my Vista computer. Before I connected my Storm (with 5.0.0.238) I noticed a grayed out option on the DM that said something about an IP modem. I then connected my Storm and it went away. I was really bumbed because I was hoping that I would be able to tether my laptop. Is this what this option was for? How can I get it back if that is what it was for?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I'm just guessing, but i think its so that you can use your BB as a wifi modem, for example if you have a laptop without built in wireless. Because you have a storm (with no wifi), you can't access that option. You should still be able to tether.

    There's another thread that talks about this. It does have an option for this, but it appears that some carriers are having this deleted. When I installed the DM Service pack the icon was there. As soon as I connected my Bold it was gone. I believe ATT charges additonal for this feature.

    I'm on VZW and it was originally on my DM when it DL'd it but it has "disappeared" and has never come back.
