Default EDGE connection for Cingular 2125 and tethering

Hi, I am a new poster.

I got the 2125 (upgraded from SMT5600). I have a Dell Axim X50v, Powerbook 12" and a Dell Inspiron 6000.
I can't get EDGE w/ tethering. I've search the archives and google to no end.

I can tether just fine

dial: *99#
User name: [email protected]
Password: CINGULAR1

however, I am not getting EDGE.
I can't go to http://device.home or http://home

I can surf the web but it is REALLY, REALLY SLOW
I tested it and it is around 25-34K

The phone itself, when I surf on it can go 112K.
I can log into and pull a radio stream and it plays in media-player without stuterring. I can also stream video and web pages fly really fast on the phone.

In the data connection bars, there is always a "E"

BUT whenever, I tether, it is GPRS. No "E" above the data connection

I do have a BIG "E" in the middle of the screen. It is always there when I make voice calls. But no "little E" over the data connection icon

So what do I need to do?

I tried the extra strings;

+GCDCONTS=1, "IP", "wap.cingular"
I also tried dialing


Still no luck w/ EDGE & tethering

Is there a registry setting to force DUN to use EDGE?

Thanks in advance
