While the mobile internet feature works fairly well in windows 7, it seems to have a connectivity issue in windows 8 Consumer Preview. I tried on 3 laptops with windows 7 and 3 laptops on windows 8. Laptops with windows 7 installed never showed any problem with the pearl modem configuration. But, when I tried to connect to the internet using mobile internet feature in Blackberry Desktop software in windows 8, it showed an error, "Device Modem already in use".
Please provide some help as I need to work in windows 8 and frequenty need to connect to internet using my BB Pearl 9105.

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
Currently Windows® 8 is not yet supported for BlackBerry® Desktop Software. Once Windows® 8 is out of beta testing then there will be supported software available for tethering.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
