    Well, the DUN is pretty cool when I am connected ;-) Just for fun I would like to hear how long you have been connected using the DUN hack?

    Myself, the longest I stayed connected was 4 minutes :-(

    I am running a TREO 650 on the Cingular network using the cingular.wap number. I am running it through a Apple Powerbook G4. My bluetooth adapter is a 3COM PC Card Version 3.0. Also am using WhatRoute to ping Google so that I do not time out but doesn't seem to be working.

    Enjoy, I look forward to hearing from you all!!!

    Using pdaNet, I connected as long as I wanted. But I only used it for one weekend, cause I don't usually need it. Does the BT DUN hack not work so well?

    I stayed connected for a couple of hours over the weekend. Some of that time I wasn't doing anything, but the connection stayed active. I've never had the connection fail after it was made, if that's what you're getting at.

    I drove down to jacksonville from NJ for the superbowl. I had a bluetooth DUN connection and a bluetooth GPS connection going the entire time in the car logging the trip. The DUN only disconnected like 3 or 4 times. It easily went a few 5 hour streaches.

    What caused a big problem was when the laptop went into standby mode. When it came out i'd have to do a soft reset on the treo and a reboot on the laptop. After that happened a couple of time I disabled standby.

    I was even playing world of warcraft for 40 minutes before the server kicked me. Needless to say, Sprint's coverage on i95 is phenominal. I was shocked how good DUN worked. The real challenge is going to see how good it works when I drive accross the country this summer.

    Was down in phoenix for a couple days and left the computer connected most of the time (with a charging cable). Only time I was disconnected was when I bumped the cable and PDAnet got confused. Probably the longest I was on was 7 hours, and since I was testing an internet poker client, probably pushed 500-600MB through there a day. Sprint+Treo650+PDAnet rocks.

    I think there maybe an inherent limit on the time spent using DUN via tmo's low cost $3.00 wap feature. I was only able to stay connected for exactly 59 minutes before getting disconnected by the third party. very interesting. I am using bluetooth dun on an unlocked gsm with os x.

    This is probable the longest Ive ever stayed connected.. about 5 minutes now and counting. Ill keep my fingers crossed. Interesting thought about the Tzones though. Im using that same plan.

    I literally downloaded a os X combo udate over the xmas break. I was at my parents house and they didn't even have dial up service. it when from 9:00 PM thru 9:AM got the update and some other security and program updstes too.
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    Does anyone know an alternative to PDAnet for Mac users? I honestly cant get my DUN connection to last more than 5 minutes before the "other" side kicks me off.

    Onpaws suggested turning off both header compression and "send PPP echo packets". Im on a Mac so I havnt tried messing with the connection settings. You might wanna give it a try tho.

    If anyone else has an idea of how to stay on longer please share, we'd really appreciate it. nikihoi what data plan are you using by the way?
