    I hear of people doing it with Macs, but I wanna use my Dell Lattitude P3 650mhz laptop with my Treo 300.

    Any way to use my Treo 300 as a wireless modem with my windows laptop? I am using Windows XP Pro by the way.

    My laptop has both USB and IR.

    Thanx alot!

    Yes, WirelessModem works fine with Windows. Many users have had success. You can download it and find documentation at: <http://www.notifymail.com/palm/wmodem/>. You'll need to either use IR or a USB to serial adapter and a serial cable.

    Does this work using Sprint PCS Vision as well, or is it still limited to dial-up connections via the Treo?

    I have used it both ways. If I dial #777 it goes to sprintpcs vision.
    If I put in the number of the modem on my system it will dial that up.

    However, I have had problems with dropped connections
    when connecting to sprint. Whenever that happens I have to
    reset wirelessmodem or it won't redial. I have never been able
    to succesfully redial after a dropped connection without turning
    wirelessmodem off and back on again.

    I have tried to read the other 28 page thread or may be it's 29 by now. Which one works better the IR or the usb to serial cable?

    I use the serial cable because that's what my laptop has.

    I followed the directions exactly and it worked the first time.

    I don't know about the speed of the Treo's IR port, but IR is capable of 4mbits I know for sure. I've transferred entire cd images from one laptop to another over IR.

    I use a USB charging/sync cable with my Treo and the IR port for Wmodem. This way, I don't drain the Treo battery when I'm using the laptop. If I plug the laptop power in, I can stay connected indefinately.

    I have read everything I could find here. But....

    I'm attempting to TEST an IR configuration with TREO 300/Sprint Vision. I would consider buying a laptop for travel/internet access if I could detemine just how effective this solution is.

    Can I test this with an existing DESKTOP that has an IR port?

    My motherboard has IR, bios supports it and is turned on, windows 200 has it configured, enabled and active (as well as a regular hardware modem). I have downloaded the Wmodem for the TREO and hot-synced it, and it is up and running on 57,600 irCOMM.

    When I enable modem on Wmodem (on the treo), it tells me "Unable to open serial port on Laptop".

    How far away from the DESKTOP does the TREO need to be? Is it a 'line of sight device"?

    Is there possibly another issue I have overlooked?

    Can't quite get there...

    Ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ed.

    Unfortunately my laptop doesnt have either a serial nor a ir port...

    I guess I'll have to wait until someone writes a USB driver
    Newton->Visor Deluxe->Visor Prism->Treo 300->Treo 600->Treo 650->Treo 755p->Touch Pro->Palm Pre!

    I'm still testing Wireless Modem. I'm using a Gateway laptop, XP professional, and my Treo 300 connected via a serial cable. Right now, I'm getting 40kbps, but my connection gets dropped after a while, and I can't figure out why.

    I'm posting this message while connected.

    Greetings,

    I have a laptop with no serial port, but with USB. Any recommendations for USB-serial adaptors and cables to take it to the Treo? Also, sources for these would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Kami

    I am currently attempting to use my Treo 300 to connect to the Internet. I have configured everything per the instructions. The problem that I am running into is that I get pass the enable modem on the Treo 300. I receive the message "Unable to open serial port on Laptop".

    Current setup IBM Thinkpad, Handspring Serial Hotsync Cable and Windows 2000.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I've used the Keyspan High Speed serial adapter: <http://www.keyspan.com/> and then Handspring's serial HotSync cable (from Handspring's website).

    Is this error message on the Treo or on the laptop? If it is on the Treo, what port have you specified in WirelessModem for Laptop connected via? Have you tried another port option?

    I connected WirelessModem via IR to my IBM A31 w/ Win2000 and I see a connection speed of 9600. Is this the max possible?

    Windows is stupid; since the Treo doesn't return a connect speed, Windows assumes 9600. If you test the transfer speed, you'll see that it is more than 9600.

    I am using the serial port on the PDA and serial on the Laptop. The error message appears on the Treo 300.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
