Connecting a modem with a PalmPilot modem cable

  1. If you have a PalmPilot modem cable (NOT a hot sync cable or a cradle), connect one end to the serial port on the modem, and the other end to the serial port on your PalmPilot.
    If you have a PalmPilot snap-on modem, connect it to your PalmPilot.
    If you have only a hot-sync cable or a cradle, you can connect it to a modem, but you will need a "Null Modem Adapter" (you can get a null modem adapter at any compter or electronics store). Connect the cable on the cradle to one side of the null modem adapter and the modem to the other side.
  2. Make sure your modem is connected to a phone line and is powered on.
