    i am interested in connecting to the internet on my laptop (via wi-fi) and was wondering if I can use the treo 600 as a connection device instead of paying on a local wi-fi network plan.

    i know you can purchase a 128 megabyte wi-fi SD card for the treo 600, but will this work? That way my Sprint plan covers the connection fees.

    If you mean that you want to use your Treo600 as a modem for your laptop, then you need PDANet.

    Just downloaded trial version of PDANet and it works like a charm. Very minimal configuration but the only complaint I have is that after I disconnected from PDANet and then reconnected my PCMCIA card for WiFi on my laptop, I had to dink with D-Link settings. I was able to connect at 57.6 using using PDANet/T-Mobile VPN. I find that T-Mobile VPN is more stable than T-Mobile Internet connection....experiencing fewer dropped connections and the phone phantom resets.

    I bought a Sierra Wireless card earlier in December to use it on TMobile GPRS and it connects slow as a snail. PDANet is a more cost effective means of accessing internet. The benefit of using the T-Mobile Sierra Wireless card is that you can also make phone calls while connected.

    I haven't heard of anyone doing this, but that doesn't mean that it isn't possible. Even if you get a wifi card for your Treo, you will have to pay for wifi service. A cell tower, regardless of whether you're connection via CDMA, GSM or GPRS will not provide service for a wifi card. Most major cities have a good abundance of free wifi access points, though...
