    Hi folks-

    I'm missing something. I'm trying to establish a dial up networking
    connection using my laptop and Nokia 6820 phone, using infrared
    connectivity.

    The phone and laptop are talking just fine. The Standard Modem Over IR
    Link is present as active under a comm port. I've selected it in the
    Dial Up Networking entry I'm using. When I dial the DUN, the phone does
    dial the number I'm trying to reach.

    The problem is the phone disconnects immediately after the other end
    picks up. We don't finish negotiating a connection.

    Are there some special settings I need to enter?

    Marc

    Re: Dial-up network over IR with 6820 and AT&T WS?

    Mag,
    I have the same problem, so I e-mailed Nokia, and this is what they said...

    ***********
    The error "Carrier Not Detected" indicates that CSD (Circuit Switched Data)
    has not been activated. When you are trying to dial directly to your ISP
    your phone uses CSD, which is not supported by AT&T Wireless' network.

    The Nokia 6820 phone can be used, as a modem only if your service provider's
    network supports Circuit-Switched Data (CSD) or GPRS (General Packet Radio
    Services) a subscription to these services may also be necessary.

    AT&T does support GSM Nokia phones that use GPRS to be used as modems.
    Please contact AT&T for availability of GSM Nokia phones supported in your
    area. Also, when using GPRS service your service provider becomes your ISP.

    **************

    I e-mail this to AT&T to see their response. I'm sure it is most likey
    another sales scam where their sales people say "Yes it can" when in
    reality, it can if you're willing to pay for additional services. Gees, My
    moble phone from 10 years ago would act as a modem...FREE....that's
    progress.

    **************

    If you have found anything else out, I would appreciate knowing what you
    found.
