Windows 7: Phone Modem Question

10 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premuim 64 Bit
Phone Modem Question

I am just now starting to use my cellphone as a modem to my PC via Tethering with a USB Cable

I have Windows 7 Home Premuim on a Dell Insprion 530s.

my Cell is a Samsung Strive (A687) with AT&T for my provider.

After tinkering around with the PC studio (the software on my PC to use my phone while connected), i got it working. But, under the network Icon on the Win 7 system tray it says i am connected to "Samsung Strive 5". At one point i had 2,3,4 and now 5.

Now, i only have one phone to use. Somehow, after configuring it, it thinks (i guess) i have 5 modems?

So, how can change so that my PC only 'sees' that i have one modem connected (other that my LAN/NIC)

I want to change the connection so that it reads "samsung strive" only.
