Acer Aspire One / HTC Snap and Internet connection sharing

Its been quite some time since I have posted. Many things going on, and lots of work to keep me busy.

Today, I set up Internet connection sharing on my new mobile phone and the Acer Aspire One. It was actually quite easy, and I am blogging from that connection now. The accompanying screen shots show a simple speed test from While it is not blazing fast connection it is more than adequate for email and web browsing.

The test gave me a download speed of 528 kb down and 336 kb up. You must enable a PAN (Personal Area Network) between the phone and the netbook to enable Internet connection sharing. This in cases of no other access is better than nothing at all
