  • USB support for Windows Mobile 6 Internet Sharing - Please read before deleting AGAIN. Windows Mobile 6 introduced a NEW method of internet sharing using PAND networking. Linux currently supports this method using Bluetooth. It does NOT in any way shape or form support PAND via USB and that is what is being requested. The old method of bluetooth and USB DUN worked in Windows Mobile 5 but does NOT work in Windows Mobile 6.
    • Where are the references to support your claim? Why does this require a new kernel driver? Accessing the internet via USB with WM6 devices is supported by rndis_host kernel driver, as confirmed by SyncE developer here. You can find the instructions for setting up USB connection for example here - in French, but you can get an idea.
      • I stand corrected. Following the SyncE developer's instructions allowed me to connect via USB to internet sharing. It only worked using the SVN version and not the module on sourceforge. Thank you for the info.
