I want to connect it as a modem to my PC,but through Bluetooth.

Can any one tell me what drivers will i be needing?

And Mr. Damo-K,said in one post that he has succeded in doing so. here are his words:

"On a recently excited side-note I got my 6255 working via bluetooth on XPSP2 with the
[b]Nokia CDMA 2000 and XP Generic Modem driver[/b]

http://nokia-asia.com/nokia/0,,69974,00.html

and now I'm very pleased."

Welcome to Geekzone... Seeing that we don't currently have any user with the name Damo-K, I figure you are reading his post in another forum... So why not ask there?

Damo-K posted on :

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=11&TopicId=3955

His profile: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/user_public.asp?user_id=2443


and by the way,my topic does not relate primarily,to what Damo-k posted,i just mentioned it,as i could not qoute his words,as that topic was locked in which posted that thing.

Please if you have anything that u can provide as help,please do so.

p.s how do i make a search by member name.I cant find this search option as i could on other forums.

Thanks.

Ok, sorry, my fault! I though you were quoting from other forum because the [b] codes are not used here, but this is in the original post. Sorry...

I have visited that page, and those are INF files. To install an INF file you download them and right-click on the file - there should be an Install option when you do that.

In windows you should be able to browse your "bluetooth neighbourhood".
When you browse into a Nokia 6255, one of the items is "Dial-up Networking"
Right click and choose Connect.

The rest is configuration. Don't think there are any special drivers needed.

I'll alert damok to stop be here next time i see him

Correct... Simply follow this article. Also you need a initialization string to put the Nokia in packet mode - simply use the Google search on the side to find this in our forum - look for [Nokia 6255 bluetooth palm] and you will see a discussion about this.

It sounds though as your problem is not related to modem drivers then.

First, it is already established you do not need them to use the phone as a modem, since Bluetooth should provide this functionality for you.

What you need now is to determine if you have the Bluetooth software or not.

When you purchase a Bluetooth adapter it should have come with a cd and you have to install the software from that disc.

Next, if you have Windows XP SP2 then there may be a driver conflict. To solve it check our Bluetooth Guides - at the top there is a link to how to do it.

When you have the Bluetooth properly installed then you will be able to use it to to do the connection as explained in the previous link - and there is no modem drivers needed.

With SP2 the connection follows the same principle, with just the screens beign a little different.
