    You don't need the hack anymore b/c DUn has been enabled on the latest firmware... though pdanet is much easier to setup if you have probs getting DUN setup on your laptop...

    Ok I will try out PDA net... is the bluetooth method significantly slower than the cabled version?

    also i see that during install, it checks for palm desktop. so i should install palm desktop software on the laptop as well...

    can i use the cable that just came with my Treo 650 to connect to the laptop? thanks guys.. i can always depend on the treo community for a good answer!

    Yes, you cannot use PDAnet without Palm Desktop.

    Hi, I have been trying to setup my laptop (win XP) to use the internet connection on my treo 650. I have read tons of articles, but none telling me how to resolve this error....

    I am able to pair my phone and laptop fine and can even Sync using BT.

    But when I enable DUN on the phone...
    go to bluetooth devices...
    go to the proporties of the phone...
    go to the Services tab...
    Check the "Dial-up Networking (DUN)" box..
    I click apply or ok and I get a window entitled "bluetooth service error" that has a msg "Access is Denied"

    Anyone else have this error and find a way around it?

    Thanks in Advance!

    I am using PDANet to connect my laptop to the internet via Bluetooth. I have a Belkin Bluetooth USB adapter. It was a muther to set up, but I finaly got it. As a matter of fact, I am running on that connection right now.

    A muther? That's putting it mildly. I have been trying for weeks to get PDANet to connect via bluetooth. I'm beginning to think it's impossible.

    I think the connection issue is with BT to the laptop, not PDANet.

    I used PDANet pretty successfully with BT connection (had to do a little trial and error). BT Hotsync was WAAAYYY to slow, but the BT PDANet was pretty good. I believe the limiting factor is the speed of the phones internet connection, no tth eBT connection to the laptop.
