i've read this guide:
"Bluetooth Internet Sharing guide for iPaq Windows Mobile 2003"
all works correctly ,till, after the network access it says :
BT network Access:
and i've to insert username, password (for what???) and host ip/name (dunno).
if i try any username/password he says:
connetcion at : BT network access
Bluetooth Null Modem

connecting...

until it goes timeout.

I dont want a modem to connect! i need just a lan internet sharing :,,,(

how do i fix this??

You're on the right track. It says modem, but that's because the connection in use is a PPP connection over Bluetooth. The guide's instructions are for LAP profile. Enter nothing for username and password.

Have a look in our Bluetooth Guides. There's a checklist there for LAN connections.

ok! now it works! anyway i'm not connecting via BT network and Null modem, but i'm sharing the connection using Activesync Internet sharing via the bluetooth com port, so its likely the same as i wanted.

I've another little question:
i've noticed the speed of the pocket pc connection is less than the destkop one.
(mail is veeery slow!)pocket IE its acceptable
i've 80 kb/s bandwitdh, is there anything i can do to share more bandwitdh whit the pda?
(tips?)
thnx

Using Activesync will be slower than the LAN connection, because Activesync uses the connection to keep things in sync. You can change its options to only sync when the device is connected, or manually. This way you should have a little more bandwidth.
