Use ZTE Z221 USB Internet Connection on Computer

I connected the ATT ZTE Z221 via usb to computer, and it installed modem drivers for that phone. How do I connect the computer via usb to the Media NET or whatever internet that phone uses on the computer?

It sounds like your goal is to use your phone as a modem so you have an internet connection on your computer. Is that right? 

Here is the manual for your phone - it should help: http://www.zteusa.com/device/201108/P020110830813371544890.pdf

That is exactly what I am trying to do. I'll look at the manual.

 

EDIT: Still gives me no guideline on what to do. What do I have to do on my computer? I see that the phone has Mobile Settings but my computer refuses to connect.

I honestly don't know but let me look into it. 

 

In the meantime, maybe one of our community members has some advice that can help. Smiley Happy

The computer's cache probably contains information on the network that you previously connected to. Reboot your computer to clear the cache. See if that works.

I'll try that. Also what I am trying to do is similar to the USB Tethering Internet with the Blackberry. I dial the *93# and it gets to registering the computer on the network and it fails there.

Wild Banchi posted the url that has detailed instructions for Z221. It looks like all the instructions are included. Just go over it and you will find out.

I turned to the tethering section but found no relevant info in there. For goodness sake, don't add a tethering subtitle if there's no information in there. This is supposed to be a released documentation.

With history as a guide, the feature was likely disabled by the carrier.

Happy T Day.
