When I try to install the 6210 as a modem on my Dell Laptop (C800 Latitude), I have 2 problems. The first is that it does not give me an option to connect via IR, and the second is that it cannot detect my cable connection (com 1 serial port). I do not get the Ir issue with the PC suite (haven't tried the cable). I have read a similar question and downloaded the suggested Hotfix regarding the IR issue as I believe there is a problem mapping Virtual IR communications port in Win 2k (I have Service Pack 2), but it isn't clear if this person encountered the problem at installation as I did. I also could not find the Ir comm setup files for win2k, Microsoft appears to have archived them and I can only get access if I order the developer's tool kit( this is where the support for that problem directed me - eventually).
Any ideas? I would prefer to connect via Ir but the cable would be good too (I have tried another cable & this doesn't seem to be the problem)
