anyway a moth ago I bought a <A HREF="http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/3360/1,4511,,00.html" target="_new">Nokia 3360</A> cell phone. it has an IR port which I used to connect with my kap top (compaq Armada M700) - windows xp emmidiatly say it is comunicating with "Nokia 3360" and another thing he did is add a "standrd IR modem" to my lists of modems. I found that VERy intresting an conigured my internet connection to use that modem to connect to the internet - and dialed
the connection is orrebly slow - around 1kb/s in avreage - but it can actully load websites and my instent messenger. I actully tried connecting from an open filed and fro a calculous 2 class at college - this is really kwel.
