    I found these instructions for how to wirelessly surf the Internet on your PalmOS handheld via bluetooth (e.g., use the nearest Bluetooth-enabled computer to get to the Internet instead of going over your carrier's data network): http://www.pspilot.de/tecombt/btsetup.pdf

    I get hung up on the "Add Network" portion - is there a way to Add a network on the Treo 650 phones? I find no easy "Add Network" button in the Prefs->Networks, but is there another way to get a new network in?

    My goal: whenever I'm in my office near my BT-enabled computer, I can switch over to wireless over bluetooth for HotSync with my home computer and getting email, etc.

    Oops, found the "add connection" (by hitting menu within Network), but I can't seem to select "PPP" as the connection type. When I try it without that, it does connect to the computer but says "Incomplete setting" and doesn't go the whole way through to the Internet.

    Any other thoughts? Oddly, it seems to be going through the DUN profile on the computer (shouldn't it go through ActiveSync?).

    OK, found out how to do it -- don't need to get nearly as complicated as my first post implied. Just connect to your local LAN through the connection. A group here already figured out the details and full instructions, which worked great on my Treo 650. I'm happily surfing the Internet at WiFi speeds.
