Road Warrior Notes: Connect your MacBook to your Treo for Wireless Broadband Access using USB Modem

John Federico

I got tired of troubleshooting Bluetooth dial-up-networking between my MacBook and my Treo 755p. I didn't have time to go through my usual self-diagnosis and Verizon Wireless technical support for the Mac was typically clueless.

Enter the aptly-named USB Modem for Palm OS. It enables USB wireless modem connectivity between your Mac and the Treo 600, Treo 650, Treo 680, Treo 700p, Treo 755p and Centro smartphones.

Installation was painless and I was up and running in minutes.

BIG BONUS: both download and upload speeds are much faster using the USB cable than Bluetooth.

Grab it for $24.95.

Note from the developer:

"Please try the demo before purchasing the software to see if it is compatible with your cellular operator environment."

"Disclaimer. We will accept no responsibility for the use or misuse of our software, for any damage that may be caused by the software or the software possible lack of suitability. We are not responsible for any charges you may incur from your cellular provider as a result of using USB Modem."

Don't say they (and I) didn't warn you.
