    Hi,

    I'm trying to dial up an Internet provider (or in fact any phone) from a
    laptop, throught the Nokia setup as a modem. I have installed the Nokia
    modem drivers. I can connect using GPRS but the rates from AAPT Australia
    are HORENDOUSLY expensive - 2.2c per kiloBIT. I need a second job to pay for
    that.

    I have set up a dialup connection on my laptop. I can connect the phone to
    the laptop via infrared fine. But when I use the dial up connection, the PC
    says opening port, and then dialing the number. Then the phone screen shows
    "Dialing ....." the number. But then I get weird three tone sone - repeated
    twice, and then th call disconnects. I can call the same number from the
    phone manually without any problems.

    Anyone know if there's a setting I need to change on the laptop (modem, dial
    in etc) or on the phone?

    Or any other help would really be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Andrew

    I guess you have been using CS data before? Could this be a subscription
    problem.

    The CSD call is different from a voice call but you should be able to call a
    data call to any ordinary PSTN number, the other end should just hear the
    modem handshaking sound from the interworking unit when picking up the call.

    In case your subscription is OK, you might need to change the modem
    settings. Perhaps you are trying ISDN connection to a non-ISDN number, or
    vice versa (ISDN should be preferable towards an ISP, if they have one,
    speeds up the data call when modem negotiation is not needed).

    Re: Using 6610 as modem over InfraRed

    Hi Me!

    Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what CS data is. The number I'm calling
    is a standard dial up number to an ISP - not ISDN.

    I'm pretty sure it's not a subscription problem because as I said I can call
    the number manually from the same mobile phone as I'm using to connect to
    the computer. That connects to the modem at the other end fine. But there's
    obviously some extra communication happening (or not happening) when the
    number is dialed from the laptop through the IR link. I tried changing some
    modem parameters such as speed but it made no difference.

    I also thought if I could call the number manually on the mobile, and login
    (not sure how to do that) then I might be able to use the IR link just to
    connect straight through to the internet. A bit like an ADSL modem can login
    to the ISP without the need for a PC. Then the PC connects to the modem and
    is assigned an IP address.

    Thanks again

    Andrew

    Re: Using 6610 as modem over InfraRed

    Andrew, it is totally different to call an ISP modem number from the phone
    (an ordinary voice call) compared to calling a data call. CS data means
    circuit switched data as opposed to GPRS. You always do need a subscription
    for CSD but some operators include CSD subscription to all accounts, you
    should really first verify that you do have a CSD subscription.

    A CS data call is a connection between the terminal and the interworking
    unit in the network and a PSTN modem connection from the IWU to your ISP
    modem. When you dial a data call from your PC, the phone behaves totally
    differently towards the network in these two cases.
