Hi.  I'm connecting a T5 via Bluetooth to my office LAN.  After a lot of trying with ICS, I decide to try a Bridge connection.  With this bridge, I have notice some "funny" things.

First Time I connect my palm to the net, I can't Ping www.wathever.com.
My Browser (xiino and blazer) returns A Timeout error (because can't find DNS.  It blocks in the "locking for DNS" message)

If I ping to the PC from palm, or the palm from the PC, the ping results ok, and after that, I can ping www.wathever.com
The browser (xiino) now return a "Socket closed by peer" error, Blazer just tell me the page can not be load, but I can connect Versamail with my pop email acount.  (this does not happen with ICS)

If I left the palm steady, connected to the LAN for a while, then try to open some site with the browser, the Timeout error returns!  And I can't ping to www.wathever.com.  I have to ping to palm from PC or PC from Palm again, then, the "socket closed" error returns, but i can ping outside...

With ICS, the IP in my palm was 192.168.0.2  And my PC IP was 172.x.x.x, now, with the bridge, the IP of the palm is 172.x.x.x but I can't ping others PC in the LAN than my own, altougth I can ping the IP's from my PC, no matter what I ping first...

My PC uses a proxy sever, but it have a name, not an IP, and a port, as I saw in the Explorer LAN configurations.  If I write the name and the port in xiino, it just said "host does not exists".  I clear the option and the "socket closed by peer" error returns.

So, does anybody have an idea wath a heck is happening here?  I have been working in this almost  three monts (not all time of course;) ) And Found no answer.  In home, the connection was a dream with the guides and so, but I think is because I have only one PC and it is connect directly to de Internet, not a LAN.  Here, I don't know the configuration of my LAN, and I can ask, because connecting other devices to the net is a kind of "not justificable purpose" so, not help that way....

Thank You Very Much!
