    I have a Windows XP laptop and a Treo 750 both bluetooth and the phone has HSDPA hack enabled.

    I want to be able to interface the two so I can surf on the internet on my laptop through my phone... How do i get this done? I found instructions on the palm site only told you how to setup it up phone side but not what settings in Windows you have to adjust to get it going... ??

    I assume you mean this...

    On your laptop, setup a new connection that connects to the Internet. Select the Treo as the modem and input the following for the username/password/phone...

    WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    CINGULAR1
    *99#

    Yes, they need to be in all capitals. You can also find this information by searching this forum and on Google.

    If you want the the lazy way, you can use PDANet:

    It basically just does it all for you so you don't have to fiddle with the configuration. Just thought I'd mention it.

    cam05 try this: http://kb.palm.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBC...e=Obj(41670)#2

    Can someone answer the following: When using PDANet or DUN, is it charged against your phone minutes or your data plan (ATT/Cingular)?

    Thanks.

    Yes, Data Plan

    I suggest you use a USB cable instead of BT DUN. You won't reach your HSDPA potential because you'll be capped by the max bandwidth of your BT connection.

    I've been using it for a while, it's great! Good Luck!

    This is where bluetooth 2.0 would be nice. Bluetooth 2.0 is faster than 1.2, but the Treo only came with the slower 1.2. But I still don't know if 2.0 is faster than HSDPA or not.

    Well, I think BT 1.2 is plenty fast. I believe it has a speed of 1MB/s, which is good for most of what people use it for, ie headset and a2cp. I'm not sure if BT 2 requires more power, but realizing how pathetic the Treo's battery life is, it might be a good idea not to include BT 2.0.

    I've been doing this for a while on XP. It works very well.

    Does anyone know how to do this on a PowerBook?
