    Ok, I am pretty sure that this is possible and if it is I have not found the info as of yet, but I would like to use my treo300(sprint) to access the Internet on my laptop. I am not talking about using it as a dialer to call an ISP, but would like to use vision, that I pay for. It may not be a modem since I am not dialing, but I am not sure what I should be calling it.

    If this is possible, what do I need to implement this. I am running osx, but would like to know about M$ win2k also, if it is based on software.

    Any help would be appreciated. If this has already been discussed, please post the links.

    thanks,
    Bob

    I have found a solution for all OS's.

    For Macintosh, use WirelessModem:

    For Microsoft Win2K or XP, use PdaNet ($34 after free trial) with a charging USB cable:

    The charging USB cable is so that your phone battery doesn't run down while you are using it as a modem (I bought a nice one from eBay vendor "spuraticat" for $3.95 + $5 s&h). WirelessModem will apparently also work, but only via (slow) IR or serial connection, not via USB. So for Win2K/XP PdaNet is better than WirelessModem.

    Note: PdaNet will also supposedly also work with Win98/98SE/Me, but I couldn't make it work with Win98SE. But it works fine with Win2K and XP.

    To get it to work on Windows 98 (and maybe ME) you have to have Dial Up Networking installed. Without Dial Up Networking it just flakes out and doesn't even give an error message.

    I had Dial Up Networking installed, and I could dial out with a PCMCIA modem card, under Win98SE. But no go with PdaNet.

    Then I installed Win2K on the ol' notebook computer. Then PdaNet worked fine. So, for kicks, I also installed XP. PdaNet works fine with XP, too.
