Hi,

I found a very annoying and strange problem. I have a Tecom 3030 USB dongle and I tried these 3 different versions of the Widcomm stack:

a) 1.2.2.13
b) 1.3.1 (from MSI)
c) 1.3.2.7

Everything works fine except lan access with 1.3.XX versions. I have switched the drivers back and forth and it is always the same: Can't get LAN access to work with 1.3.1 or 1.3.2.7

I am trying to connect with my Toshiba E740 (with internal Bluetooth) PPC. This is my setup:

Desktop machine connected to the internet via network card and Cable modem. ICS is enabled and Bluetooh Lan Access Server Driver has IP=192.168.0.1 and netmask=255.255.255.0. On the Toshiba E740 side, it works well with fixed IP=192.168.0.2 as long as the desktop has bluetooth stack 1.2.2.13 installed (1.2.2.16 also works).

From the logs on the E740 side I can see that while talking to the desktop the communication went to the point of receiving CONNECT 115200 as a response to the ATD command.
The trouble is that with the 1.3.XX versions The connection popup window never says Connected and stays as Connecting... forever!

If I go back to 1.2.2.13 on the desktop everything works fine and the popup says Connected in a blink of an eye...

Does anyone know what changed with the Network Access profile in Widcomm software from 1.2.X to 1.3.X? It seems that the PPP server on the Desktop never starts...

Thanks in advance...
Fernando Birra

I checked and everything is OK... I'm in doubt just in one thing... the DNS on the desktop for the bluetooth interface should also be 192.168.0.1 right?

I even tried running the welcome.exe on the pocketpc, but I think I have an uncommon problem since I can't get the pocket pc to acknowledge the connection... It says connecting forever...

When you enable ICS on the desktop it will set everything on the Bluetooth connection, don't add or change anything. Other than perhaps enabling NetBIOS. The virtural bluetooth card will look to be setup wrong. Only IP and Net mask is listed. On your pocket pc you'll get an IP address (usually in the 192.168.0.1xx ramge) a net mask 255.255.255.0 and everything else will point to 192.168.0.1

If you specify DNS on the Bluetooth adapter (the receiving side of ICS on the computer), then make sure it's the real DNS you have (you can find the number by doing Start | Run | CMD and then using ipconfig /all).

Only the IP for the Bluetooth should be 192.168.0.1.

I tried all your suggestions and it doens't work with me. I never get the PPC to say Connected. The strange is that with the older drivers 1.2.X.X everything is OK...

This is really strange...

I finally solved the problem, but not the way I wanted...

I installed 1.3.2.7 drivers but I manually installed the Bluetooth Lan access server driver from 1.2.2.16.

Now everything works ok... and I needn't change anything...

I really think Widcomm changed something in their Lan access server driver from 1.2 to 1.3 releases.

TDK hotline told me, that it will be fixed with the next bluetooth stack verion v1.4.2.1.
It is not release yet.
