    I'm giving pdanet a try and it seems to work fine with my new TR2A Sony but I seem to be connecting at a much lower speed than what some have been "claiming". I've heard that people are consistently surfing at speeds of 100kbps+. I'm getting about 18-22 kbps average.

    Well, first I better tell you how I am getting that figure. I go to and click on the button to check my speed. It downloads info from sites all over the world and determines your speed. It's basically a speed checker for dummies like me. Is this an accurate way to measure the speed of my internet connection (in this case, the speed of pdanet/Sprint)? According to the site it tells me I surf at speeds of about 450kbps on my Verizon DSL account (at the office) and 600kbps+ at home (roadrunner cable). So you can see that 18 kbps on my T600 is pretty dissapointing.

    Is there a setting on Pdanet to increase the speed? Does it have to do with location (I have four full bars when testing)? Or is it just the network being slow?

    bump. Anyone want to share their speed?

    That's actually slightly better than we have been getting with it. Basically, it's a bit faster than using a 56K modem and more convenient, but 15kbps is about the best I've seen.

    I think when I did my speed test through pdanet I was pretty much getting about 60kbps peak and averaging about 53kbps. Nothing to write home about but not bad either.
    I've *never* seen the kind of speeds that some claim they get regularly (80-100kbps) using my Treo with 4 bars in Denver, Atlanta or Nashville. PDANet is faster than WirelessModem, but I've had a problem where PDAnet seems to drop off fairly regularly. I don't really depend on it, nor use it for anything other than emergencies so it's not a real big deal.
