Two ethernet cards and bluetooth = not able to connect to internet?
I am trying to get my Ipaq to work with my XP pro computer and I have been through the guides and a good number of posts. From what i gather I need to set the IP of my BT adapter to When I tried to do that it told me that that IP was already in use by one of my ethernet cards. I then bridged the BT Connection with the Ethernet Card that had that IP. I still am having the same thing happen. When I try to connect my computer says that I am connected and the bluetooth icon turns blue/green. But then after clicking "ok" to blank login settings it still just continues to hang conneting to BT Network Access using Null Modem.
This is driving me crazy and yet I keep throwing more and more of my time (which I can't afford in the first place) into this seemingly endless process of getting my Ipaq to be able to surf the net without using my cradle. Grrrrrr. Any help is appreciated!!!!! Really!!!!!!

ICS contains a mini DHCP server. When you use it you'll need to have the Bluetooth LAP profile active. When using the Bridge you'll have a DHCP server somewhere in your network, or manually configure your Pocket PC to have IP, gateway and DNS.

You know you're using LAP if your Bluetooth configuration is "Share Internet" and PAN if it is "Create private network".
