The problem in a nuthsell is as follows: for three days, I've been using a Vodafone branded HUAWEI USB Modem, and now that I stopped using it, wanting to go back to wifi access, I found something called Internet Gateway in my connections folder, that wasn't there before, and I found that although the wifi connects, and I'm able to ping anything on the internet and get echoes, I can't get tcp traffic flowing. I saw that the Internet Gateway was disabled, so I figured I reenable it, but after clicking enable, it only flashes a box saying "Connecting", then "Connected", and then stays disabled.

Please help me solve this problem ASAP, and without reinstalling windows, since I'm going to need the laptop at a convention in a few days.

Thanks in advance!

have you tried uninstalling the USB modem and any software supplied with it?

yes, I tried, but it didn't help. I even dove into the registry to delete any references that might have remained after uninstall, but to no avail.
