I setup DNS as you suggested on the BT adapter. I used 192.168.0.10 which is the IP on my router. I downloaded VxUtil and pinged 209.202.221.21 but they all timed out. Where might I look for the problem?

Don't enter the router IP as DNS, unles it does have a DNS server built-in. Use your ISP's DNS address.

Do you have a personal firewall?

I'm not sure how to find my ISP's DNS. When I run ipconfig /all I get the router's IP address under the DNS heading.

How would I find the ISP's DNS?

Also, I do not have a firewall.

I checked on-line and it looks like Comcast assigns a DNS Server address automatically. How would I then change the BT adapter properties?

Even though the DNS is assigned automatically you can still enter the numbers, if you know them.

Are you able to establish an ActiveSync over Bluetooth? If so you can browse the Internet while connected, exactly like in the cradle.

Perhaps this is the easiest way to do this in this configuration? There are reason why I don't use this way in first place, but if you can connect ActiveSync you can use the passthrough.
