    To all people who can't connect even with windows pro installed. Forget your wireless network reconnect to it as your home or work network allow it to discover PCs and other stuff and you will connect.

    Call me lazy but I have to do something on my PC instead of just having a client or something that will connect my phone to the PC mindlessly. This is lame.
