Question Using Palm Treo 750v as UMTS Modem for Mac

Hi there,

has anybody of you experience with using a Palm Treo 750v as UMTS Modem for a Mac (PowerPC, Max OS 10.4.x -> newest OS)? Does it work? Do I need additional software?
Thanks a lot,
best
Helge

I've been working on this for a bit and it seems that the Modem scripts that I was using to connect via DUN on the Palm OS version (680, BT, Cingular, UMTS) is not working on the same carrier and over BT and on the same network. The only thing I can think of is that WinMo needs a special type of modem script on the Mac side in order for it to connect.

I keep receiving Modem errors. I can establish a connection, but somewhere around sending PPP packets and authentication the connection dies.

Default Try this

Ross Barkham sent me this and it works well.

Unzip the file, dump the contents into your modem scrips directory:

Macintosh HD > Library > Modem Scripts.

Then pair the 750v and mac. Follow the options, when you get to choosing the modem for internet dialling, choose the file you've just dumped into Modem Scripts and then complete the setup wizard.

Works perfectly for me.

use mine as a modem all the time with the ipaq scripts which from experience have worked with all winmo devices.

And you, kind sir, have just become my Santa for this christmas season. Works like a charm!

The generic 3G modem scripts weren't working on winmobile, but the Treo 3G CID1 script you attached worked perfectly. I now get a consistent 241Kbps down so I assume that i'm only hitting UMTS and not HSDPA.

Default having a nightmare with this.

I'm using a ibook OSX 10.4, I just got my new Palm Treo 750v, Vodafone have given me settings for connection on my mac and I have installed the treo modem script above, but I just can't get the laptop to connect through the phone it's says, "no carrier detected, check phone line connection"
my vodafone connection settings are :-
phone number - vodafone
account - web
password - web

any ideas ??

Try right clicking and then downloading the linked file to your desktop. That worked for me.
