Hi All,
I have a laptop and would like to connect to the internet using infrared through my mobile phone, does anyone know of a good one that I can get?

I'm not really sure, I have something like this already, but it looks like it is for connecting devices, but not really for the internet, I seem to have hit a mental brick wall on this one.

Using this you should be able to make a connection between the laptop and mobile.

Whether this will let you use the mobile as a modem will be downn to the specification of the mobile.

Thanks for your help, I will look into the mobile specs

I can confirm the effectiveness of Bremner's suggestion having just bought one.Works very well, but does depend on the phones spec-doesn't work on my sons phone, so he is after a new one...

thanks, the phone I'll be using is a fairly new nokia, and should do the trick, I just have to get my hands on the phone - taking phones away from your boss can be tricky!!
