    Hi,

    Im a current user of Tungsten T3 and Im thinking to replace to Treo 650. I use bluetooth connection to my desktop to surf internet with a palm. I use softick PPP to do that. Anybody Knows if does it possible to do that on treo 650? Can I do a bluetooth connection on Blazer web?

    Yes. I moved from a T3, myself, and was also used to accessing my home IC via BT. Just pair your T650 and your PC and reproduce on your Treo the Network and Connection entries that you used for BT/PC surfing on your T3; then off you go!

    BTW, the folks around here tend to refer to this process as "reverse DUN".

    Bill:

    I have a T3 that I also have access to my home network via a BT Acess Point that's plugged into my Linksys wireless box.
    I can surf fine with the T3 but have not been able to link up the Treo 650. The Treo 650 does see the BT access point but no luck connecting.
    Any ideas? Or better yet, do you have step by step instructions.
    I really miss this ability.

    Thanks, Dave

    Your first step should be to make sure that you've recreated the same relevant Network and Connection entries on your Treo that you created for your T3. Pay close attention to the script information in the network record.

    I don't use an access point myself, but I assume there must be some way to check if it can see (or accepts) the T650...

    If that's still no go, check Dean's Guide for tips.

    ...or seach TC using the phrase "reverse DUN".

    Hi, Bill

    Do you use any software in your PC, like softpick PPP?
  6. #6  
    No, I'm not using any special software to accomplish my connection (although I have in the past used Mocha PPP successfully). Dean's instructions (referenced above) are usually foolproof, but for reasons too numerous to mention, I'm instead using the RAS method talked about here.

    My Treo 650 can use a bluetooth LAN Access point or desktop with bluetooth to connect to the internet. It's much faster than GPRS. But, you must have wireless mode turned on to use Blazer! It's kind of a pain. Email downloads are speedy and so is network hotsync.

    Hi, What browser do you use to surfin internet via bluetooth connection with PC? I can use with versamail and bluetooth connection using softick PPP, but I cant surfin with Blazer.

    I'm not sure what the problem would be, I surf here at home using BT all the time, no problems at all. Set up PPP on the computer, set up the BT connection to connect to that computer. Same as hotsyncing over BT, just a little additional configuration for the hotsync. So might look up "bluetooth hotsync" or such.

    And I am pretty sure the term is not "reverse dun", that implies that the computer is using the Treo as a modem to connect out via a data connection.

    No, that's what "DUN" would imply. I'm no fan of the term, I was just pointing out that most posts about the subject here seem to refer to it that way.

    I've been searching for about 30 minutes to find this little instruction. Maybe something like this should be placed higher up (or in a sticky). I'm trying to setup my treo to do a reverse DUN connection(I'm on Verizon and don't have the $45/month data plan).
