Topic was BT Palm E2 and Bluesoleil - one more hurdle...

Got it.  95% of people say Bluesoleil is bad news - I now agree.

I had this cheap dongle with BS software and could not getb through to the net on my LAN. 

My answer was to get Widcomm drivers then follow the "standard" instructions (this and othetr sites) to set up my Palm and LAN.
Even though a previous version of BlueSoleil gave me a Network Access protocol nothing would work.

I tried a network bridge - nothing .

So the right driver is important.

Anyway, in finally setting up I have these notes to suggest watching out for.

If you have a router it must NOT be 192.168.0.X so I set mine to 192.168.1.x
Install some decent drivers - I used Widcomm 5.0.1.1100 which found my dongle ok
 -then setup the Widcomm/BT with Network Access

Allow ICS on the main card

I specified (static) all my IPs and DNS on the PC (newtowrk 192.168.1.x) and Palm (192.168.0.x BUT gateway/DNS=PC 192.168.1.1).  The guides suggest automatic but I found I could control the static addresses better.

I allowed ipnat.sys through my firewall (Sygate PF)
  -this was my final hurdle (ipnat.sys was queried on port 45013 which oddly is my utorrent port - coincidence? 
    Anyway I allowed it full access)

And I can now surf the net on my Palm E2 via my PC Lan using my cheap dongle.

Woopeee.

David
