PDANet works via ad-hoc wifi thru mac os. It also works via windows but can work via USB only with windows - not mac os. With VMWare running winxp, its easy to establish connection thru PDANet via USB and internet connection is fine on the winxp side of VMWare. The question is how to get that established connection to work on the macos side? The advantage of doing this versus PDANet thru macos adhoc wifi is the USB connection doesn't kill the battery. Even with it plugged in the battery still drains via wifi. Thanks in advance!!
