really need some help!!!

well, it's like this. i believe i followed the guide on 'how to share your internet connection via bluetooth on palm os device'. i am using palm zire 72. after following the instructions, i clicked 'connect' and it did sign in. so, does it mean it has already a connection? as further instructed by the guide, i need to check it with the view log in the options menu. i did. i followed it, did a ping and a host name. and it did time out. so, i followed the instruction to add a script. but then, after adding the script, i didn't work anymore. it signs in and just results to a timeout. so, i removed the script again. after doing so, it did sign in again. but the problem is there is no internet connection that could be done. when i go to the webpro to visit some sites, it does not appear. it just displays a timeout error.

on the pc side, i don't really clearly understand the instructions. but what i did was i shared the internet connection. and also, im using bluesoleil as it was given along with my bluetooth dongle.

i really want to make the internet connection work.

You should check your firewall to see if it's not blocking things. Also, can you ping a server by IP address instead of name? If yes, then on the Bluetooth network adapter you should enter the DNS server address used by your ISP.
