I wish to adjust GPRS through Ericsson R520
Does not work or works very badly!
People advise to make here so:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window
echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/min_tx_turn_time
But max_tx_window not present in RC9
With my SonyEricsson T610 I succeeded by doing:
echo 115200 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate
Moreover I use 'ate0v1' as init string. It works nicely with GPRS and as GSM modem. I was doing the same trick you mentioned when I was running cacko 1.21b on my Z. Since I switched to pdaXrom, I just have to adjust the max baud rate and it works. Try playing around with xircp, I found out how things work when I tried to send files over irda.
But daemon1 is right. It's much better with BT. I'm just using irda when I really have to save every 'drop of juice'. Since I have a bluetooth CF card mobile internet started to be useful. I hated to adjust my phone and Z when fetching the latest news while sitting in the metro train. Now I really go online even when walking, with my mobile still in the pocket - that's so much more convenient. I didn't notice a much bigger power drain oin my Z but rather on my mobile. Moreover I attached a BT stick to my home server, so I have internet access over BT at home and enjoy reading news on my sofa while having much less power drain than with WiFi.
Hope that helps
