I have an IPAQ 6316 connected to the internet via WI-FI. I have an old notebook which need to be connected to the internet. I wonder how I can get internet into this notebook via the USB cable connected to the cradle of the IPAQ.

Welcome to Geekzone... You can't - the iPAQ does not have routing capabilities to do this via USB. The cheapest option is to buy a PC card (if the laptop has a PC card slot) and use it this way.

I got your answer about using my IPAQ as a router connected into my PC. I wonder then how I can get internet into the PDA when I connecte this device(via usb and cradle) into a PC, which already has internet. I realize that the oposite could be possible. Is this PC acting as a proxy? How come?
In fact what I am planning to do is to have access to internet into my PC next week that I will be in USA. Overthere, I do have a T-MOBIL account which I can get internet via GSM (dialing unto its server).So, once I have internet, I was planning to use this USB connection to provide internet into my PC, but as far as I udnerstand from you, this is not possible since the PDA does not have any routibg capabilities.

Another option that I might think about it is to install a bluethoot USB connector into my PC and then use this port as com3, via bluethoot dial into T-Mobil using the PDA. Is this also possible.

Another option, is to get a PCMCI card with GSM support and install the GSM SIM into this card.

Any way, both of these two options require to buy some additional componentes ($$$).

There are some Pocket PC that can do that over USB, using a program called wmodem, which is distributed with the Pocket PC. The HP models do not have this program and it is not available for them.

An alternative as you say is to use Bluetooth, if your laptop has a Bluetooth adatper (which goes really cheap these days). Simply use the DUN service, it's all in our Bluetooth Guides. You might want to test before you buy though - I think HP have disabled this feature in some of their Pocket PC Phone Edition.

ActiveSync will act as a router using a feature called Internet PassThrough, that's why the Pocket PC can access the Internet while in the cradle/cable through the PC.
