Okay first up:

I read up on all the guides and browsed around the forums and cleared up a lot of my problems

now i am still stuck with getting internet working via bluetooth on my Ipaq. Here's how my setup differs from what the standard guides say:

Cablemodem gets DNS and IP dynamically from my ISP
Router distributes IP to all clients dynamically

hence my "normal" internet connection/lan has no ICS option

i can setup ICS on my bluetooth Lan part, but it will not connect me through the internet when i use the wizard on my ipaq. All i get is that its dialing for a bluetooth null modem and it never stops doing it

i am really lost now

Your configuration still should have ICS available. You do not mention what OS you're using, which is important. ICS is installed by default on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. It will be on the CD if you're using Windows 98 SE.

On Windows XP you may want to open Folder Options, change to View and deselect the last option "Use Simple File Sharing".

If ICS is not available, try using the Add/Remove from control panel to see if it is listed on Windows components.

Also, since your router is distributing the addresses, make sure it's not configured to use the range required by ICS (

If all this fails, try NAT32.

Sorry for not mentioning

I have Windows xp Sp2, and indeed i cannot perform the ICS on my main connection to my router

also my router is a (i admit) very cheap one and has hard coded into it as its ip adress for the internal network.

I will take a look at nat32
