After talking with Noggin this morning about his attempts to get his new PPC-6601 to connect his laptop to the internet via USB connection I did some digging.
Thanks to the folks at Geekzone I found the following article.
After downloading everything and making some modifications I have the following modified for US Sprint (and possibly others) users.
Dialer for Windows Mobile CDMA 1x or CDMA EV-DO
The zip has two files, I only had to use the .inf file though. You can use either a USB cable or the cradle.
# Unzip the contents of the download from this page into a folder on your computer
# Turn on PPC-6601 Pocket PC
# Start PPC-6601 and run 'WModem', select USB, press 'start'
# Plug in cable to PPC-6601 and USB end to laptop (or sit the PPC-6601 in its cradle and plug the USB end to laptop)
# When Windows asks for a driver, point it at the directory where CDMA1X_USBMDM.INF is located
# Turn on Pocket PC (or your Pocket PC Phone Edition CDMA)
# Run 'WModem', select USB, press 'start'
# Plug in cable to PPC-6601 and USB end to laptop (or sit the Harrier in its cradle and plug the USB end to laptop)
# On laptop click on start/Connect-to/show all connections (or controll panel/networking

you will be sorry if you don't. Hit next. You should see this:
Check the box (or not) and click finish. It should show you a screen like this:
Click on Properties:
Click on Options:
Make sure to remove the prompt items (username and phone number) and check security:
Make sure it has "Allow unsecure passwords" (we don't use one) Click the networking tab:
Make sure the type of server has PPP (not SLIP). Click the advanced tab:
Click OK and you should be connected.
ActiveSync will work normally when WModem is not started.
Click HERE to download the .inf file you need to do all of this.
