Tethering an e75 to a notebook, with very disappointing results. It shows up as a modem so the fastest speed it can put through is 921600bps (921.6Kbps), whether connected via bluetooth or usb.
What gives? I thought nokia would be more intelligent than that. Am i doing something wrong with the nokia software?

The samsung i325 that was previously used was easy, it becomes a bluetooth network access point and gets the max speed that EVDO could give.

Any way to use the full 3.6Mbps that this device should be offering?

Thats just a windows thing, and you can change it up down around and about, makes no difference and is not the actual speed of the connection. Try a few speed tests.

Make sure you set it to 3G connection only, not dual mode. It improves your speed by 3x from my experience. It's a shame that Nokia doesn't make more fuss about this! I never knew until a few months ago.
