This may or may not be in correct forum, as its to do with both Bluetooth and WiFi...

I have my HP 5450 (PPC 2002) set up with Bluetooth GPRS connecting to my Orange SPV C550 smartphone for browsing the internet and connecting to traffic updates from Tomtom.

I also run pocket WinC to enable me to connect to the internet using WiFi.

Problem I have is I can never remember what combinations of network settings I need for each type of connection, and I would like to have a piece of software I can configure once, and then use to swap between the two types of connection.

Does this exist, and if so where can I find it as i have now completley lost all ability to connect either via bluetooth or wifi (in both cases, connections to networks are made, but neither seem to be able to then connect to the intern)

Many thanks in advance

Hmmm. I don't think this type of software is available... Not impossible, Toshiba has the ConfigFree software on their laptops and Pocket PCs, and it will change network configuration depending on what network it connects to (but it won't select what network to connect in first place).

Hi,

Thought as much.

I think the problem I am getting is with my Orange SPV C550 Smartphone. Got home last nigth and connected to internet over WiFi with no problems, but get intermittant connection with GRPS via the phone. From reading other forums it would appear that these SPV phones are not good at handling Bluetooth GPRS connections from PDA's and laptops.

Shame as its a superb phone

Thanks for the reply
