To everyone out there who are interested in finding the ways of connecting your Ipaq 5450 with the Belkin USB bluetooth adapter to surf the internet .... I have come out a very simple way of doing it. First you have to pair your devices. Second establish an active sync via the bluetooth connection . (note : If I am not mistaken by default the exchange of info between your ppc and pc is set to manual therefore you will have to enable it by selecting auto startup under your Bluetooh place - config - and list of activities you could do with your bluetooth)
After which all these are done .... do and active sync by following the ppc instruction . Once the active syn is done then come the part where the internet connection is setup.
Before you do anything ensure that you have activated the ICS ( internet connection sharing which has been mentioned earlier on some of the discussion plz refer) and now go under the active sync icon on your PC double click on that - go to tool - option - rules - and look down under PASS THRU - select internet connection. click ok .
And now get back to your PPC ... go to start - setting - connection- and under my network card connects to select "the internet" and click ok .

Soft reset your ppc and activate your bluetooth to on in your ppc and and do an active syn via bluetooth. Once everything are done ... just click on internet explorer and voila you should be able to connect to the internet without hassle .

Great tip... This is good if the Bluetooth device does not have LAN profile (3COM). For others (TDK, DLINK, and including Belkin) use the method we explained in our Bluetooth Guides.

The reason is simple: if connected thru ActiveSync, most of the bandwidth is spent by AS looking for changes every second! Your network performance will be very low (around 5kbps instead of 45kbps).

Thanks Fred...... how about if I select my active sync to manual sync. Will I get back my addition bandwidth since it won't be looking for changes constantly ? I tried to connect thru the network access method but I can't get my belkin to work. It says there I am connected and i can actually check that it is transmitting and receiving thru the status page but I just can't get onto the internet . Plz advise.

You can try setting it to sync on connect only (if it's manual it'll not do the connection). But i'm not sure how the bandwidth will be better.

About your problem connecting, this was covered in other posts, but look for:

- ICS not configured properly (missing DNS entries, or address is not 192.168.0.1 for the Bluetooth adapter).
- Personal Firewall (Outpost, NIS, Zone Alarm) blocking localhost communication.

Hi Fret,
I have tried everything you have suggested. Beginning from the ICS setting, and to configure the bluetooth configuration-local services-network access-properties-enable internet connection via LAN - ICS thru the active internet connection. Also I have all the 192.168.0.1 address as you specified in your previous reply. All firewall off but still no luck.
And I have followed strictly to your guidance on how to setup the ipaq 5450 with a belkin bluetooth adapter and all I can do is to connect it for active sync and all other stuff except network access. however when I try to connect it thru network access it is actually connected when I check thru the network access status thru my ppc and it is indicating the ppc is in fact interacting with the my pc but just that I can't connect to the internet.
I m using a stand alone PC connected with ADSL internet line ..does this has anything to do with my failure to connect via network access? And also my bluetooth adapter is connected thru my PC built-in front USB port instead of those from the back PCI slot. Plz advise or I will just have to settle with my internet connection via active sync.

If you report the connection is active, then we need to make sure your Pocket PC can see the network.

First, download VxUtil and install it. Then try doing a PING on www.wired.com. If the name translates into an IP address, that's good. Otherwise it indicates a problem configuring the DNS in the BT adapter.

If the name translates ok, it means you are not only connected to the network, but it's working fine. If this is the case, then your problem is Pocket Internet Explorer.

There are a couple of configuration files that might have been accidentaly removed. Try running welcome.exe from the \windows folder in your Pocket PC, follow the instructions, when finished reset the Pocket PC and try again.

I am using the bluetooth guide to connect a Ipaq 5450 with my Belkin Bluetooth adapter. Everything is going fine until I get down to the 6th step, where I try to connect I dont get the PAN Driver page-insted it says that it established a connection with the device, but then another screen pops up and says connecting dialing using Bluetooth Null Modem. I cant get it to stop trying to dial the connection and I am not sure if I have a PAN driver installed. Can someone help me out please!!!!!!!

Most of the time, when you get the "Dial" dialog is because your ICS is not 192.168.0.1 or because you don't have DNS defined in the BT adapter. Have look in our Bluetooth Guides for a check list with other things that cause this.
