Im pretty new to the who pocket pc scene, and i have a question.  I have an hp h1940 pocket pc (i know its pretty old), anyways I am wondering if its possible to use bluetooth lan to get internet access on it.  I paired the device, it shows up under my bluetooth places (i have windows xp sp2).  I enable network access and internet connection sharing. 

When i connect the my computer and the pda a dialog boxs pops up on the pda and asks to connect so i know its connecting.

Now how do I set up the pda to use bluetooth lan?  The only options i see are for setting up a bluetooth dialup modem connection and VPN.  I tried both with no avail.  If anyone has experience with this I would greatly appreciate it.

Welcome to Geekzone... The Bluetooth driver on Windows XP Service Pack 2 does not  support networking (actually it does, but only as a client).

If you want to use Bluetooth networking you must use the driver supplied with this device, not the native drivers.
