    eKeith pointed one out. For those people that do not have bluetooth. You can use PDAnet with the sync cable.

    I myself use BT DUN, for free. PDA Net is nice but not needed if your laptop/PC supports bluetooth(dongle, built-in or otherwise).

    The speeds aren't much better in my experiences, but i have seen reports that PDAnet is a little faster.

    I had DUN set up on my old machine with a Kensington dongle and had a b***h of a time setting it up on my new notebook. First problems with the WIDCOM drivers and getting them to work. Then problems configuring the DUN setup and creating a new port. If i wasnt so stubborn and if I knew this was gonna take forever, i woulda bought PDAnet. Now that i have DUN working easily why spend the $34.

    Because this way you keep the Treo in the cradle/cable and NOT drain the battery! IMO using BT DUN is okay for infrequent use, but it really kills the battery if you want to use DUN for any extended period of time. PDAnet in this regard is a real advantatage imo...

    Why can't you use BT DUN and keep the OEM power plug connected to the Treo?

    Point taken. We shall see how much I use DUN. My old notebook was too big, not a mobile processor (high battery comsupmtion) and i couldnt really use it on the road.
