First off Mauricio you have alot of nerds, geeks, and computer ilitterates to deal with, then again the more the merrier. Here's my problem...
Palm tungsten E2, os version 5.4.7. I have an iogear bluetooth wireless usb adapter and my father has a palm zire 72 ( i love birthdays) i've gone through every step in internet connection sharing for palm tungsten t and 3 in your bluetooth guides. both me and my father are said to be connected, but when internet access is tried the page (no matter what page) cannot be displayed. we have linksys wireless internet with verizon dsl or whatever could this be a problem.



(im 15 i build computers, websites, i have finished 12 grade physics math blah blah blah... and i build craploads of electronic crap so please dont be afraid to make your response if any moderately technical)---cya

Hello there, and welcome to Geekzone...

Have you tried PINGing a server by name and IP? You should see something like this:



Things to check are proxy configuration on your Palm browser, make sure the virtual Bluetooth adapter (the "to" part of the ICS configuration) has got the DNS entries populated, it is 192.168.0.1 and that your personal firewall (if any) is not blocking communications from and to the Bluetooth software.
