I want to use my Nokia N8 as a modem.
I have installed the latest version of Nokia OVI Suite (188.8.131.520) on my notebook (ASUS N53J with Windows 7 64-bit). When I connect the N8 via USB cable, all drivers install OK except the N8 / N8-00 USB Modem, which fails. In OVI Suite then, everything else is OK but the "Tools - Connect To Internet" menu option is disabled / greyed-out, and I cannot connect to the net.
I have perfromed the exact same process on my ASUS desktop running Windows 7 32-bit and it works fine. N8 / N8-00 USB Modem driver installs along with all the others, and I am able to connect to internet using the "Tools - Connect To Internet" menu option within OVI Suite.
The N8 device itself is also current with the latest software updates.
Is this a common issue on Win7 64-bit ? Is anyone successfully connecting ? What can I do to resolve ?
Has anyone found a solution to this?
I cleaned drviers, reinstalled Ovi, no Help.
It seems the Modem Driver is not available seperatly.
Without a solution my phone turns about 50% useless for me and i will serously doubt to use them for our company in the future.
Nokia telephone support also was no help since they did not even understand the problem.
If a qualified supporter reads this please get a solution.
I know that on a brand new Laptop it works, but it is no option to reinstall laptops just because a driver is not loaded.

the Nokia Hotline is useless. I had to change back to my old HTC.

Here is the solution:
1. Go to start menu
2. Run ‘regedit’
3. Open this key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro
4. In this key, find the “Installer32” string.
5. If the Microsoft Registration Key is missing, the key has to be added manually.
6. Create a “string” value named “Installer32”, and set it to “mdminst.dll,ClassInstall32”
5. Save the ‘regedit’
6. Open the device manage
7. Find N8-00 modem with problem; uninstall it
8. Let windows detect N8 again by plugging it in.
I tried that, but to no avail, the string was already there, Nokia please help the Nokia n8 usb modem does not install and trying manually sends an inf error, also de cdc comms interface
