Or This One which is actual internet sharing, not an Activesync solution.

(Still finding my way around Bluetooth )

HI

Thanks for the reply
Both the PC (via Bluetooth adaptor) and the PDA (internal bluetooth) are Bluetooth enabled. i found out the set up instructions at

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=1421

sub: Bluetooth Internet Sharing guide for iPaq Windows Mobile 2003

And did the set up as per the instructions.the connections are set as it shows on the PDA's network access both incoming and outgoing. however the PDA prompts for a username and password and a domain name which i am not sure of . I have tried with the Windows login and the ADSL login but in vain.

It works fine till the phase when the PDA requires a username, password and domain name, i have keyed in the ADSL details but it jus doesnot go anyfurther
causethen if i key in www.google.com it doesnt connect sayin "the page u r lookin for cannot be found". Is it because i m using Windows XP with SP2 (on comp)? the guide u suggested is for Windows 2000 Pro ....... is there a guide for XP as well ?!?!?!?!?

If it is asking you for a username it's all going well - you simply don't enter anything there (leave both fields empty) and check the Remember box.

If you have already created the connection, you can delete it and start again.

hello all

Furtther to my last posts i have now been able to establish Internet connection on the Pda via Activesync. the steps would also include that one needs to develop a connection settings on the blutooth sharing to allow Internet connection from the computer (in addition to the Lan Settings)

thank you all who have helped
i appreciate.....
