All you users out there, has anyone managed to create a connection to their harrier from PC via bluetooth, to allow the harrier to access Jetstream on a landline, and so avoid the mega telecom wireless data charges? Then I can sit on the couch and browse the net for next to nothing on my Harrier. I can get mine to active sync via bluetooth, thanks to one of the problem saving pages, but cant get any other networking going at all.

I haven't tried with my Harrier, but it does seem to have the needed profiles.

Also, if you can connect via ActiveSync then you should have access to Internet by default, via the ActiveSync PassThrough.

One thing you might want to do to improve performance is set ActiveSync on you computer to only synchronise when connected or manually - if left as always up-to-date it will use part of the bandwidth for managing updates...

You need to be using Microsoft internet connection sharing. The device needs to be on the lan with your main pc and would probably run best without activesync running at all.

Yep. The ActiveSync solution works fine but it is not ideal because of the overhead on traffic caused by ActiveSync itself.

The best option is to use the ICS as suggested (if connecting via LAP) or Bridge connections (if connecting via PAN). Check our Bluetooth Guides for more.
