htc-hero-whiteI never thought setting up and connecting HTC Hero to be used as a USB modem with laptops would be this easy.

Just like all other phones out there, HTC Hero also lets you use it as a USB modem by tethering it with a PC and enjoy your 3G connection where internet isn’t available.

How to Use HTC Hero as a USB Modem


Follow the steps below to use HTC Hero as a USB modem:

  • Make sure you’ve installed HTC Sync and it works absolutely fine.
  • Now connect your HTC Hero with a USB cable and check if HTC Sync shows it as connected.
  • On Hero, go to Settings > Wireless Controls and in the end, check the option to enable Mobile Network Sharing.
  • Windows will now detect the new hardware automatically and install the “HTC Remote NDIS Network Adapter” driver.
  • Once it completes, you computer is now connected to the Internet using your mobile network! Start surfing!

Pretty simple, eh? I hope you enjoyed this tip and would love to read more of them here. Keep checking back for more.
