Re: Problem with Tungsten error, wile logging onto web via pc.

Hi, I have been having the same problem. Like you I have had countless "errors" or "check network connection settings". I thought I would look it up on the net, but have only found your question so far. My hopes have dropped as it looks like no-one replied?...Damm em! LOL I'm still replying in the off chance that you did sought it out in the end.

cause like you its killing me going through all the routine checks with software and drivers trying to find a needle in a hay stack! If you have any tips and advice I would be in your debt!

So far... I have had the exact error msg come up. tried reinstalling bluetooth software. I'm guessing I need t download a particular file for the T E2?

I have a palm treo 700 and the same message was given when I accesses my email. Sprint told me to try and do a soft reset on the device. If the problem still occurs, delete all email account and reload them.

Hope this helps.

Yup I have the same problem, I must have changed every setting possible. I use a Bluetooth Dongle amd / or a Net Gear Dongle.... Still, I hope one day SOON the answer is found....

As much as I love the concept behind the TREO phones, my solution to the error problem is to get a backberry instead. I am on my fourth TREO, and me as well as everyone that I know who has one has countless amounts pf problems with these phones. Sorry TREO, nice try.

Hi folks,

I have the same problem with a tungsten e2. same message ppp timeout

I can hot sync via blue tooth quite easily but that is it.

any updates?

Me too. My tungsten E2, though worked seemlessly with my Sony K750i phone, emails, web browser, messages. I have just upgraded to the Sony W850i and it keeps giving me the PPP timeout!!! So frustrating when it worked before. I don't know how to changed the settings anymore to make it work, there is nohelp out there for this at all!!!!!

Hey i've got the same problem with my new tungsten t5 and the same thing happens (on the t5 you know PPP timeout) and I've found out what 2 do. You have 2 enable 'Internet sharing' on your computer. I've been trying 2 do it for months but I can't! I'm completely stumped. If u go online and look it up you get a 10 page help thingie 2 guide u through but I've found it never works (way 2 complicated for me). If u can find out how 2 get your comp 2 do internet sharing it'll work and u can go online(but when u've done it plz tell all of us 2)

Hey Folks, has anyone tried setting up their computer's connection to allow internet sharing through the Bluetooth? The timeout is because it's not making a connection.

well that is my problem too. either you go back to your old phone or download a driver in your palm for the k850i

Just try changing the COM ports on your computer, or try re-establishing the PC to you handheld, by hitting setup devices. DO NOT hit 'connect.' It does not work.

I agree with the above. I was getting the same error. Just click Hot Sync on your home screen and it will automatically start syncing. This is for the Tungsten E2.
