I have followed the bluetooth guides (How to share your internet connection via Bluetooth to your Pocket PC iPAQ H3970) but got stuck at the stage where you click or select the 'Connect to Network Access'.

I keep getting BT Loging Network Access then followed by error message 'unable to dial-up'.

Can you please me me.


- USB Wireless Bluetooth Dongle (not 3COM)
- Windows XP (Service Pack II)
- IPAQ h1940

Is this Bluetooth running the Widcomm software?

If asked for a username/password leave it blank.

Have you checked this article.

Have you correct configured any personal firewalls, including the Windows XP Service Pack 2 built-in firewall?

Yes, its running on Widcomm driver.

All configuration for the Firewall have been set up via the ADSL Router, I have turned off Windows XP Service Pack 2 built-in firewall.

And have you read the article linke from my previous post?

Are you sure the ICS is configured from the adapter facing the network to the Bluetooth virtual adapter?

Is the Bluetooth software correctly configured to have "Allow Internet Access" and not "Allow Private Network"?
