First, start checking this guide.

Next make sure you don't have a personal firewall blocking this communication. If you do, then you may need to create rules or change settings for security levels to accomplish this.

Is the Bluetooth adapter using the Widcomm/Broadcom Bluetooth software, or some other software? Not all devices support Internet Sharing or LAN Access.

Check firewalls again.
