I'm a newcomer to bluetooth having just purchased 2 dongles.

I want to share my PC dial up internet connection in one part of the house with my laptop in another part of the house.

I've managed to installthe bluetooth driver on the PC and laptop and think i have to create a personal area network on my PC to share its internet connection with the laptop, BUT haveNO idea how to do it.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated.


p.s I'm running Windows XP on both the PC and laptop!

Welcome to Geekzone... You can do this if you are not using the Windows XP native Bluetooth Stack - you are correct, you have to create a PAN. We have instructions and more in our Bluetooth Guides.
