    I need to send Hi-res images to clients via email or FTP, I used to use a nokia 6680 3G phone with my laptop and axim, When I got my Treo 750v about a month ago I spent a day searching for the correct driver so I could use it as a 3G modem for my MAC Ibook, now it works perfectly....but I also need to use my Dell Axim X50V and it connects to my Treo via bluetooth but then will not connect to the internet or an FTP client, the connection always fails, I am using the same connection settings as my Ibook and as I did for my old Nokia but do I need to somehow get a driver for my Axim for it to work ??
    Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    hi again, I finally got this working a while ago, but i've now upgraded to the new TReo 750v with WM6 and I can't get it to works as a modem for my Dell Axim X50v again. I've tried various settings including copying the settings from my macbook (which works fine) but I've had no joy AT ALL.
    can anyone offer any advice please.

    looking for internet sharing tutorial please i
    I wasn't able to get this working with my dell xp laptop (usb or bt) with wm5. The connection would die after a minute.

    now I have wm6. I would appreciate a tutorial or link on how to set this up successfully.

    thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure about XP, maybe someone else could chime in with the modification to this technique, but I got the WM6 Bluetooth Internet Sharing to work with Vista and connect through ATT. Here's how:
    I Set up the pairing on the Treo 750 with the unbranded version of WM6
    Deselected ActiveSync in the Partnership Settings window of the BT pairings window
    Called up Internet Sharing and set the PC Connection to Bluetooth PAN and the Network Connection to ATT
    On the Vista laptop, I went into Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel and Added the Treo as a phone.
    IMPORTANT - during the setup, i configured an eight character passkey. Without it, Vista will not find the phone for the connection, later.
    All of the above settings should remain in place. The next section should be all that is required for future connections...
    Clicked on the Connect button on the Treo's Internet Sharing
    Right clicked on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray on the laptop and selected Join a Personal Area Network
    and then clicked on Connect.
    That was it. Sounds harder than it really is.

    Assuming that you have WM6 loaded, the other option, of course, is with USB. Not only is it easier to set up initially, it also has the added benefit of powering your device while using the battery sucking data connectivity for longer sessions.


    Connect your treo via USB. On the Treo, open "Internet Sharing" and choose the USB connection and network, then click "Connect".

    Your PC should recognize a new USB network connection automatically.

    That's it!



    *note: I use ATT and have 3 options under network. ICS, ATT and Proxy. The only one that works for me is proxy so you may have a bit of trial and error to determine which connection to use. Just watch to make sure that it shows "connected" after you click connect.

    And the only one that works for me is "AT&T". Go figure. But otherwise I agree with it all.

    Same with me on AT&T. Does anyone know what the difference is between the three: ICS, AT&T, and Proxy?

    One works and the other 2 don't.

    Seriously though, no clue. All I know is that it works and works well.

    BTW: I highly recommend using the USB for anything more than a quick email connect. HSDPA sucks battery. At least with the USB connection, your battery level can hold it's ground while it's heating up that antena. (turns the back of my treo into a mild hand warmer)

    ICS works for me when I am in an area where 3g is available. In Edge areas, AT&T is the one that seems to work.

    Saved my **** last weekend when a freak storm took down phone service, so my home DSL line was out from Thursday until Monday. I tethered the Treo to my USB port, and all was well!

    Similar situation. I forgot to pay the bill though, and using internet sharing through USB was so easy to set up, I'll be using this again if the problem arises again.
