    Greetings....

    Thought we could use a thresd like this. Since it seems that WIFI is never going to happen for the Treo 650, has anyone tried bluetooth to do it? What are the steps invovled?

    I came accross this while surfing. It could be useful if you travel a lot like I do.

    My carrier (Rogers) charges me more when I am in the US for data (even though I am on an unlimited plan). I can get a lot of my work done from office/hotel ethernet lines.... if I can make this work.

    Anybody tried it?

    The item you linked to seems to require Bluetooth 1.1. If I remember correctly the 650 only has version 1.0.

    That Belkin access point should work. There is a guide on setting it up on one of the other palm forum sites:

    I tried to set it up with an Anycom access point (some have complained that the range of the Belkin is poor) but never got it to work smoothly. I was able to hotsink but I could not ping or load websites reliably. The Anycom does not support SPP profile and the Belkin does, which was probably my problem. The Treo is supposed to support the GAP profile, but without SPP I could not set a trusted pair using com port emulation.

    It might be workable with GAP only, but after a day of trying I have given up (for now).
