Curve 8520 tethered modem issue

Hey, I have a curve 8520 and a macbook running os 10.6. I've managed to set my curve up in network properties using both bluetooth and usb, and each one ends up having a status of connected, as if everything has worked fine. However, despite everything looking connected, I can not access the internet at all. Is there something I'm missing? I'm with optus 2G apparently, APN is Internet Username and pass is guest And the number doesn't need to be put in, but it also works with *99# Thanks Smiley Very Happy

Before I look like a doofball might I ask for clarification- you're attempting to connect to the internet THROUGH your Curve 8520?

My issue is related. I am using BB 9300 with TATA DOCOMO 3G. It shows that its connected, amount of data sent and received are also displayed but cannot browse anything. The ‎​(BlackBerry logo) disappears as the connection is established. Can anyone figure it out? Thanks in advance Smiley Happy
