Hello - as per the subject title I have a Sony Ericsson v630i mobile and a laptop that has bluetooth.

I am trying to get the laptop to use the mobile for internet access, but I am having some major issues which is leading me to beleive that I don't have the settings quite correct.

Does anyone have this phone and have you successfully paired and set it up with a laptop running XP?
Or if not do you know what the actual settings need to be (for the bluetooth modem specifically but also for the phone).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In theory you just need to pair and use the DUN service. Then use *99# as the number to connect to. Which leads to the question: when you open the Bluetooth configuration what services can you see on this mobile? Is DUN one of those?

Actually let me clarify my problem - I can indeed connect through the Dun and  in fact it does tell me it is connected.
It connects if I use *99#, *99***#1 or even *99***#2.

But when I try to browse the web or use the ping command in cmd.exe it will time out.

Is there an extra setting that I am missing?

You can run IPCONFIG /ALL to see if the configuration is correct. For some Sony Ericsson and Motorola devices you could add ATZ in the init string, and if your phone is only configured for WAP then you should add ATZ;+CGDCONT=1,,"web.vodafone.net.nz" to identify which APN to use.

Cool - I shall try the ipconfig thing tomorrow as I didn't bring the laptop home tonight.

The phone is setup for internet use correctly as I use the gmail client and the opera browser without issues.

Well without issues except when it comes to National Bank online banking in opera, but thats another seperate issue to be tackled another day Laughing
