    upgraded to 2.2. now pdanet usb tethering doesnt work

    I am new to droids and a was using pda net to tether my my laptop because I live in the sticks and don't have a home internet and I upgraded to 2.2 last night now usb tethering wont work! Anyone know why or have the same problems? Also anyone know how to set up a vpn? I've tried but I don't know what the password or ip address is. Thanks!

    um, you lost root when you updated, so you just need to root again.

    PDA net does not require root....

    You might try doing a factory reset, see if that helps. I don't use PDAnet but does seem odd that it would just stop working...
    check the market for an update?

    You might also want to reset the drivers in your phone. With debugging off go through each setting (usb,pc,etc.). Then go through and do them all with debuggging on.
    Mine did not work after going to the leaked 2.2 and this worked for me.
