Error 67 with PAM?

Has anyone gotten an Error 67 upon trying to connect with PAM? I was working fine until last Thursday (1/15) when Sprint supposedly had some network issues with data, and haven't been able to connect since then. I had Tech Support help me delete my connection setting, then reprovision my Vision, but I'm wondering if the part of the error message that says my user name and password might be invalid has any merit. Anyone know if that's the one on my online account login or perhaps my old email that went away on 12/31?

3. Start the Internet Sharing application and hit "connect" on bottom left.
OK I cant seem to get this to work, I deleted the "isext.dll" entry
and i changed the forcecellconnection= to "sprint" because my connection name is sprint but the last change
I dont have this ^
I have a [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\InternetSharing\settings]
So I am a little lost here, I made the changes I could make and I dont get the 67 error any more but when I connect to my dell laptop it doesnt see a new connection and IE is asking to work offline.
Do I have to setup a new connection on my laptop?
or any ideas what wrong here??

I have the HTC Touch. I followed the instructions and the first time I was able to connect to the internet via phone. The only thing i would like to add is you need to delete the older version of the registry and then add the new one below:


Once i did that, i had no problems connecting to the internet. I appreciate the help from the blog, without it i would be stuck. My company just established new rules regarding internet usuage on the company computers. Now i can bring my laptop to work and connect to the internet without being monitored. thanks

worked great thanks!

Make sure if you are using the Touch PRO that you change it to Sprint instead of Sprint PCS. You can find out exactly what you need to set that as by checking to see what yours says.

Click on Settings goto the Connections tab. Click on the Connections icon. This will bring up another screen. It should say Sprint and have
Add a new modem connection
Set up my proxy server
Manage existing connections

Click on Manage existing connections

There will be a list displayed that will say Name/Number.

Whatever the name is with the number #777. That is what you need to change it to. Like i said with Touch PRO it is just Sprint. You must have this correct or internet sharing will not work.

I had the same problem. I am using Energy Rom and my modem connection is called DATA. So I change Sprint to DATA in the ForceCellConnection="Sprint PCS" and then the Connect button was no longer grayed out!
