I have a fairly tall order here!

I have a Hitachi G1000 on SprintPCS CDMA 3G Network. I have the Socket SDIO bluetooth card and I can successfully use it to network the G1000 with my laptop (Win 2k Pro) over bluetooth with a Belkin USB Bluetooth Dongle.

I would like to share the CDMA connection from the G1000 over bluetooth with my laptop, essentially using the G1000 as a wireless modem for internet access on the laptop.

I have tried several different configuration attempts to no avail. Does anyone know if this setup is even possible?

If the SDIO Bluetooth offers the DUN profile then it should work - but not sure as I haven't tried this with external Bluetooth adapters.

I use the Telecom New Zealand Harrier as a modem, both via Bluetooth and USB - but for the USB you must have specific drivers, which I think Hitachi didn't make available.

The poblem is that the Socket SDIO Bluetooth card (Drakar BT Stack) is a serious POS. I have to jump through rings of fire and then poke a voodoo doll in order to WLAN with my other bluetooth devices. When viewing the G1000 from my laptop or PC, the SDIO shows no usable services. I can only channel out from the G1000 to the other devices when making any type of connection.

I would really love to know how to ICS from the CDMA to the other bluetooth devices, particularly my laptop. This way I can cruise from the CDMA where there is no wifi available. If I could do it either through AS or WLAN I would be very happy.

By the way, yes Hitachi issued a modem driver and I can connect the G1000 to my laptop via USB, putting the G1000 into "modem mode" and utilizing the CDMA connection. I'm just spoiled and I want wireless!!!

That's a shame - if the Socket software does not offer this option then you will have to keep using the cable option...

A shame it is.

Not sure if it is an option that isn't working... or not an option at all. I think that it is supposed to support DUN. I'll have to investigate further.
