    I've used the much vaunted search funtion and haven't come up with a solution. The pdanet sites faq leaves much to be desired.

    Here's the situation;

    Laptop + PCMCIA USB 2.0
    Hotsync/card export both work perfectly

    I've installed the latest pdanet software on the treo and laptop. When I attempt to connect PDAnet... I instantly get an error beep and NO ERROR MESSAGE on either the treo or laptop. The systray icon for pdanet on the laptop goes green for less than a second.

    No flags in device manager.

    I've rebooted both the treo and laptop many times. I've uninstalled and reinstalled on both the laptop and treo.


    Help.

    I removed my dialup pcmcia modem from the port and uninstalled the modem.

    It worked after that.

    I'm not quite sure on how PDAnet works, but do you have to disconnect from the network first before trying to use the BT DUN?

    Yes, please answer this question, I'm in the same situation (with Windows ME). I thought you had to have XP for the 650?

    From the PdaNet FAQs:

    What is required to install PdaNet?

    PdaNet works on all PalmOne/Handspring Treo phones, the PC part requires Windows XP/2000/ME/98SE.


    dannoz...are you using Win98SE?

    yeup it's 98 SE. As to the 650 software, it installed without incident and has been working fine.

    I removed all modem entries. when trying to connect it actually gives an error now; needs a dun adapter. so I reinstalled the modem device and was back to where I started, instant beep, disconnect and no messages.

    I then uninstalled the Pdanet adapter from the device manager. upon connecting - "sorry it seems that the last connection has not been cleaned up. reboot"... which of course does no good.

    I then reinstalled thw pdanet adapter via add/remove hardware. this installed both the pdanet adapter and pdanet modem on a virtual com3.

    then back to the original situation.

    so you installed the 650 software to 98se..any issues there?

    Win98? Holy crap. Get a new computer....fast. Support for 98 ended...what, 3 years ago? How does the "treo software" get along with all your security vulnerabilities, viruses, spyware, etc?

    Seriously...win98 is a bad idea in 2005 (almost 2006). And WinME was NEVER a good idea....

    Why don't you put Bluetooth on your 98 machine and use the 650's built in DUN support? It's cheap, easy and you don't have to worry about messy cables. You can pick one up cheap like this one:

    Dude...easy.

    I am not lecturing anyone. Just giving friendly advice. If you or your friend choose to run an insecure computer, that's certainly your business. Enjoy it.

    if I was unaware of security concerns I doubt I could have rewritten my iptables firewall script to block the syn flood that was attacking my webserver/dns server/etc.... for the record the laptop was a project... I was given three broken laptops from 1994 and made two work. Loaded both with slackware and was on my way. loaded 98se to use some software on this laptop (a p133 + 64 mb). the only reason i'm using it now is that I'm 900 miles away from home and have no access to another.


    But I digress...

    I applied the official palm update for unlocked Gsm (yes from 98se) without incident. PDAnet remains unconnected and with no error messages. All possible permutations of usb settings (lap&treo) have been tried.

    any other ideas? I have been attempting to download other versions of pdanet to try. this has been difficult from my treo. does anyone have links to older/beta versions?

    (phew - too much typing with my thubs)

    Im easy, just dont HIJACK the thread. we are talking about something HUGE to alot of folks. My friend is well aware of his vulnerabilities. But he would like to atleast run pdanet and hotsync on his older machine till he can afford to replace it..

    Now back to the topic..
    So you loaded the 650 desktop and pdanet to win98se and its working?

    pump142,

    As to the 650 desktop and win98se, there do not appear at this time to be any incompatibilities. Unless of course, my inability to make PDAnet function correctly is a result of such a problem.

    One interesting thing to note though is that prior to recieving my 650 (thank you Asurion) I had a 600 installed w/ the requisit 600 software and the 600 version of PDAnet... and having the exact same trouble.

    Prior to installing the 650 software I completely removed the 600 software in an effort to prevent any incompatibilities.

    As it stands today, I have a 650 with perfecly functioning Hotsync and Card export software on a windows98se laptop w/ a USB 2.0 PCMCIA card. However, PDAnet still remains unfunctional for me. Still no error messages, just a single beep.

    I wonder if someone could check something for me though. I had the device manager open while I tried to connect last night... for < 1 second a "Palm Device" appeared (without any error flags). Does this occur for you? The same device appeared while hotsyncing but not with card export. I have tried to connect to PDAnet both with hotsync software running and without with very similiar, dismal results.

    Thanks
