I bought recently a Pocket PC, Mio A501 and although I have an internet connection on my Mio, when I'm in home i want to connect to the pc and using the internet that I had on my pc. My laptop doesn't have an integrated bluetooth so I bought a bluetooth Bluesoleil. The problem is that I'm not able to make a PAN connection or to connect my Mio to the Active Sync using the bluetooth. Could anyone help me regarding this problem because I search on internet and I didn't find much information or complete information. If somebody knows anything regarding this and what software do I have to use post to this topic. I also want to mention that on my pc is running a Windows XP Professional.

If you are using the Windows XP SP2 Bluetooth drivers than you can't network the devices. You can still connect to ActiveSync, which by default will give you access to the Internet.

On your PC you need to create an Incoming COM port on your PC, and still on your PC configure ActiveSync Connection Settings to use this new port.

Then you create a new partnership from your Pocket PC - this should identify the ActiveSync connection. Every time you open ActiveSync on your Pocket PC and connect via Bluetooth you should have Internet access from there.

There's really no configuration on the Pocket PC - it's all done on your PC side. Once you create the COM port (through Bluetooth) and link to ActiveSync (through ActiveSync Connection Settings) then you just need to pair your Pocket PC to your computer.

Pairing is the only thing you need to do from your Pocket PC side.

Creating the COM port you do through the Bluetooth icon and to access ActiveSync Connection settings just right-click its icon and you will see the option.
