so i went to the palm site and signed up for a chat session at 11 pm
california time! the first person was not too useful but somehow he
got disconnected when i rebooted so i figured i'd try again.
the lady who walked me rather quickly through it had it working in
about 5 minutes! i was so busy following her directions that i don't
remember how she got me to establish com ports 5,6, 7, and 8 - does
anyone know how this is done? anyhow, my palm found the computer and
all is well ...but i'd like to know how its done so i could do it for
my laptop ...
btw she did say that i wouldn't be able to wifi with windows 7 (64
bit) and no usb connections in the offing ...:-(
The Hotsync in Palm desktop 6.2 on Vista doesn't need com ports - it
speaks bluetooth directly.
The method of configuring com ports is, I think, determined by the
bluetooth software - Trendnet, or Toshiba, in your case. In the
Control Panel, find the Bluetooth icon, launch it, and there should be
some way to add com ports. And, in hotsync, you point to that com
port. As far as I know, you only need one. Altho I have sometimes
ended up with more than one defined - not sure how I managed to do
that - and I would sometimes have to play around with hotsync, trying
different com ports, to get it to work.

Any particular reason? It (wifi) works just fine with 64 bit Vista...
Note that you don't want to use Micosoft's XP, use Sun's VirtualBox and
do a clean install of WindowsXP to the VHD.
Does that mean that wifi does not work with Windows 7 otherwise? How
about bluetooth? (They both work with 64 bit Vista.)
