    Nokia 6230 infrared

    Hey, i know i bunch of people have the Nokia 6230. I'm looking at getting the Cingular Media Net Unlimited plan. I have a BT adaptor in my car, that brings up a new Network Connection in the network interfaces. My work and personal laptops both have infrared ports. Is there a way to tether my laptop to my phone w/ the infrared port? I had an old Nokia 3360 and you could do it with this if you downloaded the drivers.

    Any ideas?
    thanks!

    After a couple more hours if searching, i found that it shows up as a Standard Dialup modem, and if you update the drivers to include the one found at: http://europe.nokia.com/nokia/0,6771,54003,00.html you can install it.

    I have xp sp2 on my laptop and the infrared will not connect at all. I am starting to think the manufacturer's drivers are buggy or not there. Do you have any tips or tricks for establishing a connection?

    Infrared is not working, or the connection to the phone over IR? is it detecting, but the drivers aren't working? if its not detecting make sure it is turned on in the bios. Otherwise make sure you have the newest IR drivers. Once it's working, i connected my phone over IR and a Standard InfraRed modem was detected. i pointed it to the Nokia IR phone driver and it worked
