I use Palm Treo 750 running Windows Mobile 6.1. I don't have GPRS on my mobile. However, I do have a broadband connection on my laptop running Windows Vista.

How can I use the PC's Internet connection to browse from mobile (either USB or Bluetooth)?

I have done this with one of my previous Windows mobiles (Smart Phone 2003 SE).

You should install (update) ActiveSync on your laptop. And then it usually works automatic.
If not, use Start Menu, Settings, Connections (3rd Tab). I have a "USB to PC" icon there.

But the installed programs are configured by the Vendor, maybe yours are different. Describe how far you get. I would use USB (to start with).

Hi Henk, Thanks for the help. Your hint helped in finding out the solution. This is what I did and now I am able to browse from the mobile. :) In PC (Vista): Open Windows Mobile Device Center Mobile Device Settings > Connection Settings Check "Allow USB connections" This computer is connected to "Internet" In Mobile Open Connections > USB to PC Either Check or clear the check box (Advanced...) – Vishnu Oct 6 '09 at 3:34
