Hello,
I followed you guide about setting up an internet share over bluetooth from my pc to Imate PDA2k. I was very helpful in getting it all set up, and now my PDA can see the internet connection of the bluetooth, however when I go to connect the PDA asks for a user name, passward and domain which I didn't see as part of the guide. I have tried a variety of passwords, but not sure what it is looking for. The pda just sits on one screen saying connecting, and never advances to connected. Do you have any suggestions? My phone has been telstra customised and I don't know if that has had any effect

Welcome to Geekzone...

No username or password is needed. Delete the new connections on your Pocket PC, and create again - this time don't enter anything on name or password and make sure to select the [Remember] box.

Hello Again,

I have deleted the users name and password as suggested, now I still get to the same point, there is a small window on my imate saying:

Connecting to: Dial-up (BT netwo...)
Using: Bluetooth Null Modem

Dialing: Connect...

It has been sitting on this screen for atleast 5 mins now.

Any suggestions?

Have a look in our Bluetooth Guides. There's a section with a list of things to check when this kind of connection doesn't work.

Hello Again,

Thank you very much, your guides have helped me solve the issue.

The old trick of worng IP address in the bluetooth adaptor, set it to 192.168.0.1 as suggested and all is well.

Once again, Thank you very much.

I have more geek to learn than I thought :)

Regards,

Bevan Daniel

Do you have a preffered image / link format for links from other websites?
