Hi guys, i just switched back from windows 10 to windows 7.

I had no trouble like this on windows 10, but since i'm on 7, the usb sharing stucks very frequently ( i guess high download charge make it stuck ), i have to unplug/replug usb and it's working again.

Have someone an idea to fix that ? Maybe a rndis driver problem ? Thanks a lot.

I'd been meaning to check out USB tethering again, mainly to revisit and to see if I can help out. Sadly, i'd forgotten that you can't tether when WiFi is your only internet connection and as I am between SIMS, I have no data to play with.

Check in Device Manager and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the RNDIS driver. Generally, there is nothing to play with directly with the driver except the Network address under the Advanced tab in device properties. Which by default, you should be seeing ~ perhaps there is a network conflict?

Side note*; if anyone Spanish is reading this comment, could you recommend a good value pay as you go SIM for Spain?, a neighbour suggested Tuenti..?

Thanks for this answer Edz, i still have this issue. Playing poker, fortnite, discord etc .. is working well, but every more important charge, like internet browsing, youtube or downloading something stucks the network sharing.

In the advanced tab, IP address was set on "absent". Should i set it like on screenshot ?

If that ip matches the ip you have set in Developer mode(default, then you should be good to go. Certainly with that property set to 'Not present', the connection does not work.
