Windows 8 Pro Drivers for Tethering... when?

Does anyone know when the drivers for Windows 8 Pro will be available, allowing me to tether my device.  The Mobile Hotspot feature isn't as reliable and I'm about to travel extensively.

 

If they are available, and I'm just missing the download location, would someone please be provide the location?

 

Cheers

Spoke to RIM...

 

This is a known issue.  See the following document and "follow it" when you want to be notified of a fix/update.

 

Article ID: KB33303

 

This article points to another article recommending you uninstall and re-install (with a couple of caveats) as a work around.  I haven't tried this yet, not sure if it will work.

 

Article ID: KB02206

 

The second article is going to be updated to reflect Windows 8 in addition to Vista/7 as O/S's experiencing this issue.

 

I'll post my results later today.

Update: Windows 8 Pro Drivers for Tethering... when?

Sorta works.  Worked for me three times in a row (after 2 reboots).  The third time, I got the same time out error.  Sigh.. Come on RIM.  Let's hope they iron this out quickly.
