    I've noticed that sometimes I have to toggle the Wireless Mode on and off a few times before the USB Modem connection becomes undimmed in System Prefs. Has anyone else seen this behavior? 10.2.3.


    THanks,

    THanks,

    Please see other threads for some discussion on this; if it doesn't show up, you typically have to:

    1) Set Enabled to No on WirelessModem on the Treo
    2) Quit WirelesssModem on the Mac
    3) Quit System Preferences on the Mac
    4) Launch WirelessModem on the Mac
    5) Set Enabled to Yes on WirelessModem on the Treo
    6) Launch System Preferences, select network.

    Sometimes the OS just doesn't recognize the Treo as being properly setup.

    Thanks for the quick response. So, is this a bug in MacOS X?

    I wouldn't go as far as saying that. It is one of the following:

    1) A bug in OS X
    2) A bug in the WirelessModem driver (that I wrote)
    3) A bug in the Treo's USB implementation
    4) A hardware bug in some of the PowerBooks/iBooks.

    Since it works most of the time, I don't plan on investigating #2. All kinds of weird things can happen with USB.

    Now that I think about it, I've never had a problem with HotSync, so that would make #1, #3, and #4 less likely? Unless this is exercising a completely different code path ...


    Thanks

    if you follow the steps as written it will work. it does for me first try on a iBook running 10.2.3
    I just ordered the new 12.1 PowerBook G4, I hope it works as well as the iBook does with WirelessModem
