    any providers or hacks that allow the treo data connection to be shared with PC? I realize it would be like dial-up, but curious none-the-less..

    ohh, and is it possible to get the voice service from Verizon, and Data service from Sprint?????? that would Rock!

    Dial up networking is discussed on the Palm Support pages for the Treo 650, and here (search using the term DUN or BT DUN (Dial Up Networking)). A dependable way to accomplish DUN is through PdaNet.

    cool. thx. would it be possible to use one of the unlimited data packages provided by the carriers to actually share a connection with a PC instead of DUN?

    2nd question referred to getting Sprint's Unlimited Data package for $10/mo and a Voice plan through VZW as opposed to DUN from sprint (in case it was unclear)...

    Dial Up Networking is what one uses to "share a connection with a PC". If one were using DUN through the Treo, it would be using data supplied through one of the carrier's varous data packages; most folks opt for one of the unlimited data packages.

    umm, ok, after some more reading i need a clarification... are the "data" packages offered by carriers identical re:bandwidth etc as the voice signal? if so, i guess they will basically ALL be DUN connections then? I had read of people getting 150-200k and assumed it was using a different spectrum. perhaps they are just using compression when possible?

    doh :-S

    DUN, Dial Up Netorking, is the term used when one shares the phone's data connection with one's laptop or PC; it does not refer to the method that data is delivered to the phone - terms for that include GPRS, EDGE, EVDO, etc. My GSM phone delivers data through T-Mobile (that I can share with my PC via DUN) at speeds around 110 - 130 kbs. Sprint phones (and I assume Verizon) deliver data at speeds comparable to or better than that.

    what bandwidth is normal for the data packages? we are in an area with decent signal strength, but it says 1x. is that significant to what we might get for bandwidth?
  9.    #9  
    heh thanks for your patience and many clarifications. i DID assume DUN referred to the method of communication. do you think we could expect about the same bandwidth on VZW if 1x is showing in the strength indicator area? if we could get connection speed comparable to ISDN, it might worth the $45/mo to have mobil internet anywhere...

    oh ya, and can you hook up an external antenna to the 650? that might be helpful for one of our remote office locations to ensure decent bandwidth for the notebook...

    woowho!!! just got it! we got a $50.00 treo rebate, a $100.00 data connection rebate, and a $100.00 discount for 2yr contract renewal=$150.00 for one treo and $200.00 for the 2nd one! these baby's rock. can't wait to get all our spreadsheets and doc's on there!!!! thx again all the help in the decision-making process.. data connection looks decent out here in the sticks... about 160-200k. not bad since we're miles from cable or dsl. i'll order a DUN connection tomorrow.... i'll keep searching for info on antennas...

    ahh, haa... found some antennas: try this if anyone else needs antennas or signal boosters:

    Hello there:

    Is it necessary to purchase PDAnet to connect my Treo 600 to my laptop for wireless Internet access?

    I thought I had read somewhere that there was a setup procedure to accomplish this, but I can't find it just now.

    Is it that PDAnet is simply providing an easy, documented way to do this?

    Just the most reliable IMO. You can certainly try other software.

    I thought I would try to resurrect this thread to clear up something for myself. When I think of Dial Up Networking I think one modem (on local computer) dialing a phone number to another modem (connected to computer at an ISP), which then is the gateway to the internet. I have assumed that with all this talk of using DUN to get your computer on the internet, I needed to have an ISP with a phone number.

    Or…
    Does the Treo act as the computer connected to the internet (i.e. through vision on sprint) and you use it as a gateway for the laptop. Thanks for some thoughts on this, I feel of all the hundreds of threads I read on this I should know the answer to this, but it’s just slipping away from me.
    Thanks.
