Do you mean internet sharing?

If so you need to have active sync installed on your PC. Before you connect your device to your computer, go to Start > Programs > Internet Sharing > USB > Connect and then finally connect to your PC, give it a few moments and you should be online.

That's because Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition used RAM to store data and execute programs - which means that removing the battery would erase any of your content on the device.

Windows Mobile 5.0 uses a mix of RAM and non-volatile memory. Your device does not have the correct mix to support the new OS.

In other words, no there isn't an update.

Regardless if you going to WM5 or not, it won't "fix" the issue of keeping your settings as PPC2k has no non-volatile memory.

And I won't even bother suggesting to upgrade your rom to a cooked WM5 seeing that you have difficulty trying to get the basic going, sorry it's just not worth the effort for yourself, and anyone else that to help you to "unbrick" it should you managed to do it in the first place.

That's why I don't recommend cooked ROMs... If someone can't find it in first place I suspect the person will have a hard time applying it and most likely it will "brick" the device.

fabiboo50, "bricking" means turning your device into a brick, if any steps in the update fails and you don't know how to recover from it.
