Hi everybody,

I tried to web surf with my PDA WM 6 on my PC thanks to bluetooth but it doesn't work. It's about 3 days i try everythings but I can't fix the problem. So I have no idea, please anyone could help me ?
I have a USB bluetooth dongle from Belkin installed on my PC (Win XP Pro)

I can connect my PDA / PC by ActiveSync but no Network connection.

I think the problem is that I have don't have any "Bluetooth network card" installed when i check network properties. So no ICS under my PC Internet connection (by ethernet).
How can I install this Bluetooth network card ?

thanks for your reply !

You don't need a Bluetooth network card to browser from your Pocket PC. You just need to have ActiveSync working and connect and it will automatically access the Internet through this connection.

Delete any pairing from your Pocket PC and PC. Make your PC Discoverable and from your Pocket PC you create a new pairing.

Once this is created you can connect by openingActiveSync on your Pocket PC and tap on Connect via Bluetooth.

Thanks for your reply...
I try your solution again and again... but...

I do everything you suggest to me. I can create an ActiveSync beetween my Pc and PPC. But when I'm trying to surf with IE, the PPC say the modem is deconnected.
I see in my Internet Connection manager that a BT Null Modem connection is created. I think it's for surfing by ActiveSync, but what should i enter for user/pass ? I think it's the problem why my modem is always deconnected when i'm trying to surf.

ensure under settings/connections/bluetooth/mode on your device is visible to others, then try this as it should work not just for the hermes. should be similar under XP
