Yes, I'm going to be getting a palm one lifedrive with wireless and bluetooth and I was wondering if there is a way to get wireless from my palm over to my laptop. The school I go to only allows one wireless mac address to be used so I am trying to figure out a way I can use my palm most of the time and to still use my laptop during breaks and stuff.. I don't have any bluetooth stuff for my computer so I am also wondering if I really need to buy anything as well. I can spoof the mac address on my laptop to match the palm, but I am not sure whether I will have conflicts when I am going to use the wireless on my laptop then....... Please respond back if you have any ideas... I will be watching the forum for a few days...

Welcome to Geekzone... Sorry, this feature is not available on the Palm OS. But if your laptop has Wi-Fi you could try connecting on an ad-hoc Wireless LAN? Not sure if it works, but you can try.

Yes you should be able to do it via a wifi connection - i haven't tried with a LD yet but I've done it with a T5 and Wifi Card
