I am trying to get my o2 XDA Exec to connect to my laptop so I can use it as a modem.

yes my XDA does have the wireless modem app and yes I have paired my XDA with my laptopn and yes switched off Activesynch...but nothing happens.

my XDA doesn't appear in device manager as a 3g modem (though I have managed to get it recognised as a 'standard modem 110,000bps'...

can someone walk me through step by step what I should be doing???? It all looks so easy...

Thanks loads

Stef

If it's recognised as a modem what's the problem? Just dial *99# and it should work. Not that I've tried it myself but that should work.

thank you for the warm welcome!!

I get it as a modem but had assume that for 3g it would want IP addresses (which I have) but there is nowhere to put them on a standard dialup...

also what's *99# do????? never seen that before!!!!!

Cheers again!

*99# is the number to dial for a data connection you might then need a user name and password which are:

Username : o2wap (contract) / payandgo (PAYG)

Password: password

for O2

Good luck

The *99# dialup number just makes a data call. Whether you connect to GPRS or 3G then depends on your mobile device, sim card and data account settings at your carrier.

Assuming you have a data enabled 3G sim you just need to make a standard Windows dial up connection using your Universal as the chosen modem and *99# as the dial up number.

I have the same set up to use my Exec as a 3G modem over USB (using USB keeps the Exec charged)
