Sorry it has taken me a few days to response. That E-mail account is
plagued by spam, so I only check it periodically.

I was never too sure if the connection could be achieved until someone
mentioned that commercial product. Frankly, I agree with you. I never
pay for software because Open Source and Free Open Source solutions are
everywhere. Unfortunately, I can't offer anything more than speculations
because I am now aware of any free alternatives to PDAnet. I used to
think about propagation of the wireless signal, but I am not aware of
any utility that does that. While Palm stand idle, it seems as though
the hacker community ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacker_community )
is slowly moving to Linux-based PDA's like the Nokia 770, so maybe
that's something worth exploring in the future. It's all about Wi-Fi
with the Nokia.

Best wishes,
