I installed WIDCOMM on both desktop and laptop.

Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) enabled on the desktop with LAN card sharing it with the Bluetooth adapter.

On laptop, I put in the DNS as mentioned above.

Although I get connected through Network Access from laptop to desktop but still I cant get to surf the internet from the laptop.

The desktop has the internet connection through ethernet LAN and router with dhcp disabled on router. All settings on desktop are static ones.

Please help me in this regard...thanking you...

This sounds like a firewall problem. The configuration seems correct. You might have to disable firewall on the desktop to check it. If you are using Zone Alarm or Norton Internet Security, even when disabled they create problems.

I have disabled the WINDOWS XP SP2 firewall on both the laptop and the desktop.

Now this is what is happenening...

Laptop makes connection to the desktop through Network Access service of WIDCOMM software.

But the laptop doesnt take IP settings and DNS automatically from the desktop's bluetooth access point.
It takes some default 169.xxx.xxx.xxx IP and subnet of 255.255.0.0 which it shouldnt.

I feel it should take desktop's ICS dhcp help to get the IP and DNS.But it doesnt!!!

Now I manually changed the IP to 192.168.0.2 and subnet to 255.255.255.0 and DNS to 192.168.0.1 on the laptop.
Still the laptop is not able to connect to the internet through the desktop's bluetooth network access point.

The PING is not even allowed from the laptop when i PING 192.168.0.1 . It returns "Request timed Out".

What should I do now in this regard.

Thank you for your reply...

You should leave all settings in Automatic on the client laptop. IF you are not getting the IP addresses it could be that you are using the wrong connection type. Make sure the Bluetooth configuration is set like this:

BLUETOOTH is a useless technology. It doesnt work most of the times. Its not worth putting effort on it using it.

I am dumping my bluetooth dongles now and will rather rest away from laptops and desktops headache...

Thanks for your help...bye!!!
