Trying to get blackberry to be reconized by windows

I am trying to get my device to be used as a modem.

Windows XP with latest patches

32 bit, 2 gb ram

Error message: "A wireless Device was not Detected to detect your wireless device select from list..."

TS steps:

selected device and restarted discovery - Failed same message

Rebooted PC - same message

uninstalled software - reboot - reinstall - same error

 

Is there a setting on the device that needs to be turned on?

Thanks

Hi,

Open Blackberry Desktop Manager and let it run in the background.  If you need to know how to set up a Dial up Network for you, here is how:

  1. Go to Start > Settings > Network Connections.
  2. Double-click New Connection Wizard. The New Connection Wizard opens.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Select the Connect to the Internet option. Click Next.
  5. Select Setup my connection manually. Click Next.
  6. Select Connect using a dial-up modem. Click Next.
  7. If the Select a Device screen appears, select the Modem - Standard Modem check box. Click Next.
  8. In the ISP Name field, type a name for the desired connection. Click Next.
  9. In the Phone number field, type #777. Click Next.
  10. Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
  11. Enter the Username and Password provided by the wireless service provider. Click Next.
  12. Click Finish.
  13. In the Connect window, click Properties.
  14. In the Properties window, verify that Modem - Standard Modem appears beneath the Connect using heading, then click Configure.
  15. In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK.
  16. In the Properties window, click OK.


That should do the trick for you.

Hey what's up, have you checked to see if driver hardware needs updating by checking thru Microsoft update ?

Well not sure why a blackberry driver would be supplied by MS.  I have the current drivers off the VZ install disk and can browse the device.
