    Internet Connection using Cell Phone (WIN XP HOME)

    A friend has bought a new laptop and wants help setting up an internet connection using her cell phone. She has bought the necessary "gear" from Cingular but I was hoping someone could point me to some information on doing this.

    Thanks,

    The phone manufacturers generally post user manuals and FAQs in the support sections of their web sites to cover issues with accessories. Definitely worth a look.

    From the perspective of the computer, the phone either is a modem or a network adapter. Either way, the "New Connection Wizard" is where I would start if Cingular gave you settings but no software. If there is some kind of software, you probably should load that first, particularly if there's a USB connector, so that Windows XP and properly detect the phone when you connect it.
