    Anyone know how to use the 650's internet connection as a connection for my mac laptop?

    I am using Sprint Vision, Treo650, and a mac ibook 10.3.8 (also have a wifi card.)

    Thanks,
    Rascal

    I forgot to mention I don't have bluetooth technology in my ibook. Sorry. I did look at the Shadowmite patch and as far as I can tell, you must have a bluetooth enabled computer. Is there a tethered (phone to cable to laptop) type approach for establishing an internet connection? I guess I was hoping to discover what the options were.
    Thanks!

    Then your solution is WirelessModem by Scott Gruby found at www.notifymail.com if you want to try a tethered approach. The problem is that this is app has been problematic lately, especially with USB and Treo 650s. See the WIrelessModem users mailing list archives for info. I would suggest you consider buying a Bluetooth dongle (relatively cheap) for your iBook and then install the Shadowmite BT DUN stack patch. Works great for me with the same setup (I have a 1st gen TiPB G4 and use the D-Link BT adaptor). YMMV.

    Jposin,
    Can you point me in the direction of this "WirelessModem users mailing list"? I could not find it on the notifymail site. I found other mailing lists on the site but not the WirelessModem mailing list.

    I am not able to get my MAC to acknowledge that the 650 is connected. My old 600 worked great with WirelessModem & Treo in Tethered mode.

    I have BT DUN working however I would like to compare the speed between "WirelessModem & Treo in Tethered mode" and "Bluetooth via DUN".

    Any other specifics regarding your quote below?
