    On the CNB newly enabled. at connect shows 115kbps. Speed test says 108 download & 57kbps upload.

    Sounds good to me.

    I use TMO's tzones & my DUN speed test shows 115kbps(that's the max speed of BT modem) but when I dw it's only 9 or 10 kbps...!!!

    " dw it's only 9 or 10 kbps.. "
    I think you are mixing up KBps (Bytes) vs kbps (bits)

    I use DUN with serial cable and usually get around 84k. Although in a low signal area I have gotten only 17 once.

    I might be mixing up things but I really don't know the difference between KBps (Bytes) vs kbps (bits). Appreciate if someone explains it...

    Let me tell this in more detail:
    I use tzones to do DUN. When I make a connection through my BT adapter, the small internet connection icon which sits in the quick tray near the watch on the PC shows speed of 115.2 kbps but when I use the same connection to dw something eg. mp3's or palm softwares the dw speed is only 9 or 10 kbps! Am I missing some settings or may be my area isn't supporting EDGE? I guess I do get EDGE speeds because when I use www.dslreports.com/mspeed via my treo with 200k , 600k I get around 74 kbps. How the sprints DUN speeds are (average) when you dw something? It would be worth swtiching to sprint for me if I get around 50 to 60 kbps for dw compared to TMO because I am looking to sign up for a new contract anyway.

    115.2 is the connection speed between your PC and the Treo. But what really matters is how fast the Treo is connecting to the rest of the world. If you're getting 80-100 kbps, you're doing great. You'll never achieve the full 115.2 anyway due to overhead, signal strength, etc.

    " If you're getting 80-100 kbps, you're doing great."
    do you mean this much speed for dw via pc when connected thru BT? or general speed for opening websites? because I guess both speeds will be different...

    I've had PdaNet since March. It always shows 192kbps at connect. Is it misleading?

    I think it is...if memory serves, there is a disclaimer in PDANET that sez to ignore the connection speed indicator, as it is not accurate.

    is this the speed even when you dw some file say mp3 around 5MB in size?

    "...I might be mixing up things but I really don't know the difference between KBps (Bytes) vs kbps (bits)..."

    KBps - kilo BYTES per second
    kbps - kilo BITS per second

    Each byte is 8 bits. Usually, there is a stop bit, some systems use 2 stop bits or start/stop bit. I just assume 10 and divide it by 10 for quick math. So, 115 kbit/second, you would be doing about 11.5 kbyte/second.

    Bits/sec (little "b") is the raw bitrate of the serial communications link. 115.2Kbps is 115,200 bits/second of 101010101010...

    Bytes/sec (big "B") is the data throughput of the link. This rate is less than bps/8 (8 bits in a byte) because of other overheads, such as packetization, protocols, contention with other users of the network, error recovery, etc.

    On a clear channel, Bytes/sec is generally about 1/10 of bits/sec. On a busy channel, it can be anything.

    Just some basics, HTH.

    I get approximately 100kbps using DUN on Verizon. This is using the speed test at dslreports.com

    thanks RickLaw & tmt for explaining bits & bytes!

    Any recommendations on a good BT device for my laptop which interfaces well with the 650's Bluetooth to use as a modem. Small and compatible is best?

    Thanks

    If you're only using it for DUN....how about one of these: http://search-desc.ebay.com/bluetoot...fsopZ1QQfsooZ1

    If you find that you'd like to get a farther range out of your bluetooth device...like for reverse DUN (using your laptop's internet connection on your Treo)...you might want to check out the Linksys USBBT100.

    Just make sure the one you pick comes with widcomm drivers.

    On the topic of DUN speed. I have noticed a slow down in the last couple of weeks. (Since Cingular releases 1.31 which supports DUNs?)

    Using large file download as guage, I was able to do about 10kbyte/second 2 weeks or so before. I am now doing about 1/2 that. Anyone else noticed the same thing?
