Chapter 11. Communicating Wirelessly wit... > Use Your Treo as a Wireless Modem

Use Your Treo as a Wireless Modem

One Bluetooth feature that caused quite a stir among Treo users when the Treo 650 was first released is dial-up networking, which involves using your Treo as a wireless modem to access the Internet on a notebook computer. In other words, you use the data portion of your mobile phone service to establish a data connection with your Treo; you already do this any time you access the Blazer Web browser. However, when using dial-up networking, your Treo passes along the wireless network connection to your notebook computer, effectively turning your Treo into a wireless modem. This feature caused a stir because wireless carriers disabled it in the Treo 650s they sold.

Note

Figure 11.9 and these Bluetooth HotSync synchronization steps apply to a Windows computer, but you should be able to follow along and carry out the same general process on a Macintosh computer.
