I have read through many postings on this forum, and other sites, but am still not able to figure out how to get my cell phone to connect to the internet.

I can get onto the internet with the phone using the Verizon software for Broadband Access. But my windows XP OS is in "trouble" and it is only a question of when it will stop working. The Knoppix software seems to be working properly.

The modem in the VX8300 Verizon phone is probably similar to modems in earlier models.

I tried using Kppp but probably used wrong settings.

I would very much appreciate any help getting the phone onto the internet as I am away from home for quite a long time and my Windows XP operating system is in "trouble" and will probably crash.

Thank you.
