I tried connecting my ipaq to my motorola startac with a serial cable. I can dial out, log onto my ISP through a terminal screen, but when I tap on "OK" to continue, I am immediately disconnected. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

I had the same disconnect problem when trying to connect to an AOL account directly. An option is to use MSN as your ISP. Download a few months free to try the connection. They are one of the few ISP's to support the mobile format other than the cellular phone services. With an MSN account you must put MSN/ before your username when signing on from your mobile device using a dialup connection. For help, go to www.cewindows.net and go to ISP section. I have a Casio e-100 running ce 2.11 connected to a Startac 7868 through Verizon. If you're with Verizon,they sell a Mobile Office package which is a phone to serial port cable which you don't need, compression software for a laptop connection which you might use and the dialup connection to them which you do need. The great thing is that there is no fee for the service, you only use your airtime. Price is around $60. Any connection is neat and cute but painfully slow. The FCC regulates the transmission rate to 14.4 kb/s. Good luck.

I suspect the problem is that your ISP uses CHAP authorisation whereas your IPAQ is try to use PAP. Some ISP's support both but not all. You can sometimes get over this by enabling the terminal winodw after dailling and logging on manually.

Take a look at the ISP FAQS at http://www.cewindows.net/faqs.htm , it mightr give you some more informative clues.
