MyWi USB Tethering Not Working?

What do I need to do to USB Tether my computer to my iPhone?

I'm on Windows 7 (32Bit). I turned on USB tethering and plugged it up to my laptop. Do I need to do anything else? Thanks

I tried mywi on my 3gs with ios4 the other day and it messed it up really bad. I had to delete it to get out of safemode.
Just use PDAnet

I'm on iphone 4 and 4.0.1

I start the USB Tethering on MyWi and hook it up to my laptop, but this doesn't do anything. Any advice on how I can get the USB tethering to work? What am I not doing? Thanks

No but make sure it is updated. When you plug in the usb cable your computer should find new hardware and install the appropriate driver, using the iphone as a network device.
