im working on setting my umpc up with mac os x. As expected, wifi is not working. Bluetooth, however, is working fine. Is it possible for me to put a bluetooth dongle into my desktop (running vista ultimate) and share my wifi connection over bluetooth to my mac device?

If the Bluetooth adapter comes with its own software and support for PAN then it would work - but they have to be close (10m with no blocking obstacles) and speed will be no more than 115Kbps.

The Windows Bluetooth software works only as a PAN client, hence the need of additional software.
