Unhappy N95 as USB Modem / Proxy Disaster

Hi there,

Facts.... German T-Mobile .. using the N95 thru PC Suite as USB Modem to connect on my laptop. Spent many hours with T-Mobile support.. no success.

Problem: It connects all fine and flawless... but apparently through a Proxy as I do not get a "direct" connection and all Urls are altered

Example: After having established connection, I right click on any image .. and as path I get...


instead of

Went through all settings with t-mobile and also have direct (slow) instead of fast connection enabled in t-mobile sped manager... still same problem though. For just browsing it does not matter, but I am blogging from abroad and trying to add an image with an absolute Url to my blog .. it'll take the altered path and, therefore, screw everything up.

Anybody any ideas...?

I suspect it's t-mobile in germany that is doing the screwing. I have same experience with three network in the UK. All traffic is forced to go through proxy. Interestingly enough, t-mobile UK allows direct connection which is great! So for internet I only use t-mobile in the UK. Also no problems with VPN traffic with them.

Yup .. of course it's T-Mobile but they don't get their act together. In that speed manager there is this fast setting which obviously goes through a proxy.. but that's not selected. and the "normal" access should provide direct non-proxy access.. it doesn't though ..

It's a miracle .. t-mobile got the problem sorted out! (after weeks) .. Solution ... the standard access point to connect is internet.t-mobile. This one hits a firewall, which screws up everything. They now did setup a second access point for me (ca.t-mobile), which has no firewall and. surprise surprise.. it works perfectly. The access point you define in PC Suite / Internet Connection / Manually configure settings

Just wanted to let folks know...
