OK - I followed the bluetooth lan setup guide here to connect my Tungsten T to my Dell laptop with a Belkin USB dongle for lan access. I can connect, sign in, and establish a connection to the dell. It is setup for internet sharing.

However, whenever I try anything - such as pinging an address, using Web Pro to open a web page - my Tungsten performs a soft reset. Also - my device doesn't seem to be picking up the correct DNS settings and I can't figure out why.

Here's my win ip settings...

Windows 2000 IP Configuration

Here's the settings on my tungsten from the log:
service name: bluetooth lan
local ip address: 192.168.0.27
gateway address: 0.0.0.0
dns addresses: 192.168.0.1

Any ideas why my tungsten is resetting and why it's not picking up the correct dns settings? And yes - it's set to query DNS and ip settings.

Thanks

Jonathan

Well - i could have sworn that i applied this patch when it came out last may. but...... i guess i didn't - 'cause i reapplied it and it works perfectly now.

Thanks for putting together the guide! I appreciate it.
