Solved: W8: Using Iphone to surf: Error 651
Hi

Trying to use my Iphone to surf online on my stationary computer when my usual net falls out.

I use the cable. I can see the iphone in the list of available networks, but whenever I try to log on (doubleclick the Iphone icon) it runs for a while before returning:

Error 651: the Modem (or other connecting device) has reported an error.

CLOSE is the only available option. I have a friend who has this working.

What could be wrong?

Does your data plan allow tethering?

I've checked with my service provider today and there are no restrictions, so yes it allows tethering.

Thanks for posting your fix. Needing iTunes for tethering is certainly non-intuitive.
