    PalmNet 1.1 only supports Treo 300. PalmNet version 2.0 added support for Treo 270/180 and dial-up networking through Treo.

    Users need to subscribe to GPRS data service in order to use PalmNet on Treo 270/180. Since wireless carriers like T-Mobile charge you by number of bytes downloaded (as of today), users are advised to use PalmNet wisely and look out for usage statement.

    Version 2.0 also added the new feature to use Treo for wireless dialup networking(air minutes may apply). If you have already setup a dial-up networking entry for your ISP, you can click on the PalmNet tray icon and check the entry under the "Dial-up connections" menu, PalmNet will automatically dial that entry when connecting.

    We acknowledge that PalmNet might not work for all users due to variated systems and services. Unlike Treo 300 which is only used by Sprint, Treo 270 is deployed by many different cellular services in the United States and most Europe countries, this makes it almost impossible to support. We have created a self service page http://www.junefabrics.com/palmnet/finderror.php that hopefully you can find helps if you are getting errors dialing up.

    You can discuss Treo270 related PalmNet issues in this thread so that hopefully other users can help. Please specify what GPRS service you are on before asking questions and visit the above link first.

    Check it out at http://www.junefabrics.com/palmnet and have fun!

    ...on one hand, I am very excited that this software is finally available for the Treo 270. On the other hand, I am very disappointed that I cannot get it to work AT ALL.

    I have read through all the documentation on the web site and cannot even find mention of the issues I am having. Basically I have 4 problems.

    1. When I try to connect, on Palm I see Rec 11 sent 3, then get error 692 on WinXP Pro Laptop. If I close and try again (not hitting redial) I get error 773 on the Treo. Either way, no connection.

    2. I can see the two entries in device manager, neither have yellow exclamation points or red x's, so all seems fine, but every time I try to view the properties of the palmnet modem, device manager stops responding. This only happens with the Palnet Modem entry, so I cannot view the connection logs as described in the FAQ.

    3. When Palmnet is installed it automatically creates a shortcut in startup folder so that it starts when you boot. The problem I have is that when Palmnet starts running on my esktop, it closes out the Hotsynch app. If I try to relaunch hotsynch, it appears in systray for about 2 seconds, then closes again. The only way I can hotsynch is if I turn palmnet off on the desktop.

    4. Since installing, my laptop now takes between 3-5 minutes to shutdown or reboot. It used to take about 30 seconds.

    My Treo is a 270 with T-Mobile GPRS service. laptop is WinXp Professional with SP1 installed (as well as NUMEROUS security patches).

    I apologize (to everyone) if the answers to my problems were to be found in the FAQ, but I have looked and couldn't find any mention.

    Can anyone help? Have I done something wrong here? I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling with absolutely no change.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer...

    Great, but I can't get connected (yet)

    I'm located in Mexico city and I see this app is for Sprint and GPRS. In Mexico city I have GPRS but I don't know if I have to change something like dial number

    Maybe a June Fabrics guru may help me. I've read the 'troubleshooting page' and I have the PalmNet modem installed and the PalmNet Port without any trouble.

    Hope you can help me.

    I already changed the phone# for my network and an initilization string and now I'm getting a:


    Error 691:Access was denied because the username and/prprpr $password$ $was$ $invalid$ $in$ $the$ $domain$

    any clues??

    Quick and easy install. Connected first time, speedier connection than I expected. Actually felt much faster than the Treo when downloading and displaying pages on my browser. Guess a 1Ghz processor is a little more up to the task than a 33mhz Dragonball.

    Now the bigger question:

    Is it worth $35 bucks?

    Probably as it worked well and is the ONLY workable way to get a PC online with my Treo. TreoModem (IR connection) was much too slow.

    What about the GPRS data charges?

    This is what may cause me to skip it. Too easy to gobble up kilobytes ($$) with a laptop browsing away.

    Might be good as an emergency backup but I think I'll wait for the emergency before I spring for the $35.

    Very well done though PalmNet - I hope you do get enought sales to make the development worth the effort.

    I have EXACTLY the same problems and setup, except I have XP Home and am on SFR/Vodafone GPRS. The fact our PC's take ages to shut down and that we can't access PalmNet modem properties is I suspect that the application has crashed somewhere along the way (if you Ctrl-Alt-Del to task manager you can't even terminate the application).

    If you reboot and don't try running the application you will be able to access the PalmNet modem settings and get the log.

    If you uninstall the app you will no longer have the shut down time problems.

    I was on the beta testing team and had very fast replies from them up to the release, but I was told I was the only one having these problems at that time.

    I will email them this thread in case they are not monitoring it.

    I have the same problems as ExtraOrdinaryJo and manu.
    I'm using vodafone gprs with a Treo180 and a desktop machine.
    1. Meanless difference that as far as I can remember I've seen on my treo:
    Rec:22 sent:6
    And got the same usualy WinXP modem errors.
    2. Device manager stop responding too when I try to view the PamNet Modem settings and log, but anyway everything is seem to be fine.
    3. True too.
    4. I can't wait the slowly shutdown so I hit the reset button.
    (Maybe I was a little bit angry? )
    5. Can't terminate the app too.
    I think we need some help.Can anyone help?
    Please.

    Gomiboy, I have Rec:22 sent:6 as well.

    I will forward your reply to the thread to PalmNet.

    Let's keep our hopes up!

    I'am getting the same Exact Symptoms.. 22rev 6sent.. also i'am getting the 773 Error on my 180 // This app really does not work at all right now..

    Thanks everybody for reporting the issue. Based on the infomation we gathered from a few users, we believe there are two problems that occur on some units:
    1. Wireless modem not responding. In this case you will see:
    Received: 22 bytes, Sent: 6 bytes on PDA and
    "692: Hardware failure in port or attached device." dialup error on your PC
    We have been doing testings on a few T-Mobile based Treo270 and unfortunately we haven't been able to make it to fail. But we already have some clue on what is causing this and will solicit some users to help us untill the problem get resolved.

    2. Windows XP refuses to shutdown immediately.
    This is probably resulted from a failed connection attempt. Maybe try to wait for a minute before shutting down and see if it helps.

    Stay Tuned!

    Eddie solved this one for me!!

    I was asked to try and upgrade to the latest version of Palmdesktop and HotSync on:
    http://support.handspring.com/esuppo...oads_table.jsp

    and it worked!

    Well done PalmNet!
  12.    #12  
    Yup the solution is found. There is a problem in the older version of Handspring's software. All Treo 270/180 users are required upgrade their Palm Desktop & Hotsync Manager software to at least version 4.0.1

    To see what version of Palm Desktop you are currently using, exit PalmNet and launch Hotsync Manager, select "About..." on the popup menu of the tray icon. If the version is not 4.0.1 or above, you need to upgrade. If you purchased Treo 270 lately the Handspring CD could already be shipping version 4.0.1

    Visit http://support.handspring.com/esuppo...oads_table.jsp and download the latest "Palm Desktop & HotSync Manager" for your model.

    The Handspring upgrade should fix all the problems (Shutdown, Hotsync and so forth) reported on this thread so far. We will change the PalmNet installer so that if detects an older version of Palm Desktop it will refuse to install.

    I already had 4.0.1 installed. I downloaded and reinstalled anyway and it worked. It still closes my hotsynch when it is open, but I can work around that. Haven't rebooted yet, will try later to see if that is fixed and then post results.

    THANKS for the help!

    Joe, seems like Handspring has a second release of version 4.0.1 to fix certain problems on XP in the first release.

    http://support.handspring.com/esuppo...213&ResType=il

    So it could still means that only the latest of 4.0.1 will help. I am adding your tip to our FAQ page.

    the download from handspring did resolve this issue.. i was able to connect with my laptop and my 180 without issue to the AT&T GPRS Network. Good job on a fast turnaround time guys

    Aloha!
    I already had 4.0.1 just like ExtraOrdinaryJo, but - as you said Eddie - the downloading of the latest version of 4.0.1 fixed my connection problems.
    That's what I call Fast Tech Support!

    Tried in Malaysia on DIGI GPRS network and it works fine.... don't worry about the 9.6Kbps stated...its not the actual speed...actual speed is higher...
  18. #18  
    I followed the directions, upgraded to "new" 4.0.1, followed the configuration directions for Cingular, and it "just works" - I'm using a Seidio short USB sync/charge cable and it works fine...

    Does anyone know the limitations on the "trial" version - are there any physical limits, timeouts, or just a period for the trial? I intent to purchase but want to test it for a few days first...

    Thanx
