OK, I will install that util & post the results

As an aside, under Settings | Connections | Advanced |Select Networks ... fr programs that automatically connect to the network I have a setting called My ISP that has my GPRS settings in to connect via my phone; for programs that automatically connect to a private network I have a setting called my work that has nothing in it. My active synch is installed on my work laptop (not my home one that I am trying to connect to via BT) and when the IPAQ is in its cradle, I can surf the net on my IPAQ via my work laptop's internet connection.

Do I need an additional entry under p'rograms that automatically connect to the network' that defines how to connect via a BT connection for Internet explorer ?

I have tried to set this up but it seems to want to do it via a Modem and asks for phone numbers etc. ?
