Bluetooth modem weirdness…

So, decided to get my wife to drive on the college visit trip (see previous post), so I could work some on a strategic planning document I need to get some traction on…

While I was riding, I thought I’d check my email, since I’ve got my blackberry 8830 configured as a tethered modem with my MacBook. However, it would not connect. I was reduced to paying $9.95 for connectivity at the hotel 🙁

However, with my “fine” ethernet connectivity (packet loss, jitter, etc.), I decided to see if I could figure out the problem with my bluetooth modem. It would connect and immediately drop. I’d just last weekend upgraded to Leopard, and figured that must be the problem. Did some web searches and didn’t find anything relevant. So, I changed the modem settings to something that shouldn’t have worked, and it didn’t. Then, changed back to the original settings. Damn thing works perfectly now. Go figure.
