Hello

I followed the instructions on http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?ContentId=448 to connect to my computer network via bluetooth.

I get up to the screen showing the Connecting Dialog box (https://cdn.geekzone.co.nz/images/articles/BT_PPC5450/pic18.gif), and is says connection established.

But the problem is, it then tries to dial out. It comes up with "Connecting..." dialog boxpointing to a "two arrows" icon on the top of the screen.

The dialog box says:

"
Connecting tow: BT Network Access
Dialing from: Home
Using: Bluetooth Null Modem

[b]Dialing 011,1 Connect[/b]
"

What am i doing wrong?

Probably ICS is not setup correctly or your personal firewall (if any) is blocking the required communications. Have a look in our Bluetooth Guides and you'll find an article on things to check if the connection does not work.
