I am having a bit of trouble getting my bluetooth working on my Tungsten T3. On my Palm, my DNS is set to 192.168.0.1 and my IP Address is set to automatic. However, when I connect, my IP Adress and my Gateway are both 0.0.0.0

I am connected to a cable modem through a D-Link residential gateway that handles my DHCP. I changed my D-links IP adress from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2 and the DHCP adresses are between 100 and 199.

The only odd thing that occurred during setup was that when I tried to set ICS on my LAN connection, the system errored out due to another device using the required IP adress (which is 192.168.0.1). I tried this both with and without the BT dongle connected and I still recieved the same error.

I am running Windows 2000 Pro.

Any Help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!

THANKS

You'll probably have this and more conflicts. ICS is a DHCP server. Your PC will have an address 192.168.0.1 (the Bluetooth virtual adapter), and ICS will try giving addresses out on this range. It may conflict with your router, which is another DHCP server in the same range.

I suggest you change your router to 192.168.2.1 and the built-in DHCP on that to this new range.

On your Bluetooth virtual adapter, which must be 192.168.0.1, you can enter the DNS you have from your ISP. And on your Palm you must have everything assigned by the server, including DNS.

I set my Gateway to IP address 192.168.2.1 and I forced my bluetooth adapter (on the PC) to IP 192.168.0.1 with the DNS address set to 192.168.2.1. My Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0 and I did not set my Default Gateway.

On my palm, I set my DNS and my IP to be set automatically.

Now my connection log indicates that my IP address is not being set and I have no entry for my DNS addresses.

Any Help?

Thanks

Next things to check:

  • personal firewall on this computer?
  • on your Palm configuration do not enter a username and password on the connection fields

    No Firewall other than the Residential Gateway.

    No password or user name entered.

    Any other Ideas?

    Thanks
