Hello everyone!

Before beginning my inquiry, I would like to say that if this kind of post was already posted, I´m apologize, but the true is that I didn´t dinf anything regarding to this.

So, here comes my inquiry: I have

1. Mio A501 with - access to internet from my mobile provider, bluetooth, ´´Network Drives´´ where I can configure a Bluetooth PAN Driver. If I try to configure the Bluetooth PAN Driver, I should be able to insert an IP address or to get the IP address automatically.
2. A Dell Latitude D620 which has already a Bluetooth driver installed and also the posibility to create a PAN network.

When I try to connect the Dell with my PDA, making a PAN network, my Dell says that the connection cannot be made and I should check the configuration or to see the help file(which by the way it doesn´t help me so mych).

I would like to connect the PDA with my Dell creating a PAN network and using my mobile data subscription that I have in order to navigate to internet from my Dell. I would like to use this option, for example, when I´m travilling and I don´t any wireless network around me or the posibility to connect directly to LAN.

I would appreciate any information regarding this inquire and tell me if you also tried to do something like this, or maybe this is not gonna be ever possible.

freitasm: If your device provides DUN (dial-up networking) this is the easiest one to setup. You can find more in our Bluetooth Guides.


Well, I should check out and see if my device provides DUN, even if I doubt it.
But I guess that my problem is that i cannot make the PAN connection between the two devices, and I don´t know why.
