    I hope some of my TreoCentral buddies can help me out. I'm in the hospital using bluetooth DUN without any problems except when trying to access google. Whether I enter in google.com or simply type in the google search field built in to my browser, my browser just hangs and I finally get a message stating the site can't be accessed.

    I did a search but couldn't find any info. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Clear your browser's cache then try again.
    If not, try Google's IP address directly http://66.102.7.99/

    Thanks for the tip. I tried both of your suggestions but I still can't access google. This is very strange. No problem with any other site (including other search engine sites like Yahoo!) but google.

    And one last note. I found a wireless connection here I can use and had no problem accessing Google. My guess is that it has something to do with DUN. Will my ip address be such when using DUN that Google may not "like" it?

    Thanks for any help.

    Download CCleaner and wash your system. From time to time I can't access certain websites for no known reason, even if I try Firefox and IE.

    Thanks for the tip as well. I was able to connect to Google as I hopped on a wireless network for bit. But then as I got back to using DUN minutes later, I could not access Google. So I don't think I need to clean my system out. I'm still wondering if Google is somehow rejected my ip address. Just a guess.

    Lemme guess - your a t-mobile user?

    If you are then I share your woes. I can get to the google web page but google searches and web access to Gmail via my laptop using the Treo as a DUN modem have never worked. T-Mo has stated that they don't block traffic to google but I suspect they do.

    FYI, Google did not work via T-Mo using any of the various Sony Ericsson handsets I have either via the phone or while using the phone as a modem.

    I've not pursued it heavily... If I really need to net search Yahoo and MSN do work and, while not as good as google, are functional.

    If you're using another provider then disregard.

    Yep, you're right. Damn, I can't believe it. I bet you're right about the T-Mo blocking. Thanks for the confirmation. I may try to bug T-Mo and figure out what the heck they're doing and why.

    In the meantime, I found a work-around. I used the anonymous proxy widget from proxify.com and I accessed Google's site just fine using DUN.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm glad you got it working.
    Why not post the actual fix so others can benefit?

    Of course I read your post.

    Your reply just means that someone having the same issue will have to go to that website to investigate the details. Forums are as much about sharing information to make life a little easier for others that will encounter similar issues as it is about researching your own issue. It would have been courteous of you to simply give the proxy setup info but its no big deal...

    Why don't you read over your own thread: You asked for help, I offered a suggestion and you found a different solution. Where does it say I want to hold your hand? I don't have that issue. I'm just thinking of others. It appears that you are too discourteous and immature to see the point. Good luck...

    I'm not in this argument, but I think it's pretty funny. If you go to http://proxify.com/ you'll see that all you do is type in the webpage you want to visit and it takes you there. You don't have to download a program or read some config file or anything. Very straight forward, anyone can do it without a manual needing to be written here. But since you wanted one, here you go:

    1. Pick up your Treo 650. This requires using at least one hand, however if you have some sort of cover that blocks the screen and keyboard you may need to use two hands to hold the treo in place while you remove the cover with your second hand. If you only have one hand and have a cover it may require you to use your mouth. Seek help from a friend nearby if your mouth is wired shut.

    2. Press the power button on your treo. This is the red button and only needs to be pressed if your treo is currently off. If your treo is on and you press the power button your treo will shut off requiring you to press the treo button a second time.

    3. Once the treo is on you may need to press the center button of the 5 button navigation button array. This is the oval button in the center of the treo. This will unlock the screen. Be sure to do this quickly as if you take too long the treo will shut off again. If needed repeat step 2 and 3 until the treo is powered up and the message "Keyguard: Press Center button to unlock" no longer appears.

    4. Make sure you have internet access. Call your wireless provider for more information about wireless data plans.

    5. Launch your web browser. If it is loading the last page you visited wait for it to finish. If the last page you visited was a pornographic website and you are in a public place quickly clutch the treo to your chest to hide the fact that you are a dirty dirty person.

    6. Once the last page has loaded click on the address bar at the top and type in the address www.proxify.com then click "go"

    7. Once the page loads you will see the proxify website. From the Proxify website: Proxify™ is a web-based anonymous proxy service which allows anyone to surf the Web privately and securely. Unlike other proxies, there is no software to install or complicated instructions to follow. Just enter a URL (website address) in the form above. Through Proxify, you can use websites but they cannot uniquely identify or track you. Proxify hides your IP address and our encrypted connection prevents monitoring of your network traffic. Once using Proxify, you can surf normally and forget that it is there, protecting you.

    8. In the form on the page enter the URL (website address) www.google.com and click the button called "Proxify".

    9. You now have access to the website www.google.com. Everything you search for will go through the website Proxify.com first. You will see a bunch of ads that Proxify puts on the top of every page you browse to. Everything you look at proxify.com looks at. I do not recommend using proxify.com when entering personal information on the web.

    10. Dance like no one is watching.

    Hope this helps!

    Dude, you just asked me to post the solution. I did. Visit Proxify.com. I posted it *immediately* when I found the solution. If I was "discourteous" or "immature" I wouldn't have. I'm not going to write a paragraph summarizing their service when you can simply visit their site.

    If I was interested in not sharing my solution, I wouldn't have bothered posting after my initial solicitation for help. I'm not going to hold your hand and summarize their service here for you.

    Again, visit the site- proxify.com

    Ok. I stand corrected.
    If I had the problem I would have visited the site.
    I just didn't like your "hold your hand comment"...
