My laptop uses a 802.11b connection for internet access. Can Bluetooth work simultaneously with it? Basically, I want to keep my existing laptop WIFI connection to the internet, but use the bluetooth feature on my iPAQ 1945 fo active synching and internet acces through my laptop. Can WIFI and bluetooth run at the same time? If so, i can't seem to get it working.

Ok, then I am totally lost. I changed the IP addresses assigned by my router to something other than, but I cannot get anything to work. I know for a fact that there is nothing wrong with my registry or user settings. I can't seem to find anything in the Bluetooth guides about my particular problem. I can't get active sync to work at all. I have no Idea what I'm doing. I see that a Bluetooth Com port is set up, but can't find an adapter listed. My Bluetooth Icon is sporting the Red "B" instead of white, and there are no services listed. I am using the Wincomm software, and my wireless hardware is Intel, part of the Centrino package. HELP!!!
