first and foremost i would like to say thanks for any help i may receive.

I have been having issues with easy-tether and pdanet ever since i have paid for em. Seeing as i cannot seem to get help from either of them i thought i would ask here.

Easy-tether used to connect fine and stay connected , then all of the sudden 6 months ago it would drop connection every 5 mins. no matter how many times i reinstall it , the drivers or change configs it simply will not hold a connection. Before the new easy-tether update it would freeze on my phone and require a force stop and restart.

Now, since the easy-tether update all of the sudden when it disconnects i get a balloon above easy-tether saying "easy-tether dropped connection for unknown reason" and shuts off the whole usb connection and force closes the adapter . Windows event log said 2 errors .

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

IP could not open the registry key for adapter Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{8A5A51BE-5085-4095-90C0-64FA0C6EC31C}. Interfaces on this adapter will not be initialized.

I am in school and cannot get a internet connection at home without either pdanet or easy-tether. I will not buy another program i have already spent 60 bux on these , and they don't work. I'm freaking out right now because im running out of options.

I have the optimus s ls670 rooted with a custom rom (cant remember which one)
windows xp 64 bit
both pdanet and easy-tether paid newest versions
all updated drivers

Hmm I do not have wireless access on my desktop at home , i guess i could buy a wirless card but I would like to know why i cannot use easy-tether and pdanet.

My question was specific. I understand that there are workarounds to not have to use tethering for internet access.

Edit: thanks for the suggestion though, not trying to be rude but I need to use tethering , because i use my phone as a modem/access point. I use my phones super duper fast internet (HA!) as my home internet.
