I have a Clie NX70V and am trying to connect to the internet. I have ordered a wireless LAN card, but in the meantime, I would like to connect while the PDA is in the cradle. When I go to Preferences/Network ... I see that I am prompted to put in a Service. But I am connected to a cable company with my PC. Nothing listed on service. I don't have a user name or password .. so I have selected connection, edit, named it LAN, connect to:Local Network, Via: Cradle ... ok/done ... but on the main page, the Service thingy and user name are still there. Where I try to connect using any of the service providers, it just times out. There is no option for Cable LAN connection ... what should I do? and .. does anyone know about Wireless LAN cards for Clie, will it be just "Oh so easy" when I plug that it? Is it just automatic? .... Thanks in advance

Well ..I went to this site ... downloaded Direct Link .. and later Link Direct .. they both have simple directions .. set up a profile, standard modem, number 00 ... but no matter what I did .. they try to connect, then redial .. but nothing connects ... My PC is connected via ethernet cable to a high speed internet connection with our Cable Internet Service Provider ... the directions on the site said that that should work. Not sure what I am doing wrong .... any ideas? ... Mark
