Hey ppl,

I have a serious problem, I can't get my ipag 5450 to share internet connection with my desktop pc. Read all guides (including the one for 5450 ics) and discussions, did everything I should (as far as I can tell right now) but nothing is working, I am getting seriously frustrated.

I have an Ipaq 5450, desktop running WinXP, widdcom bluetooth software.

Am able to create connections through bluetooth with desktop, but never able to browse the internet or to acces a network path (Shareddocs) on my desktop.

I dont get it, I set up connections on Ipaq (new>connect>explore a bt device>retrieve services>Networkacces>) and set Ipaq on "server assigned ip address" everything works, icon Network acces turns green, bytes are being exchanged... arrows indicate connection but NO browsing on the internet possible... PLEASE help me, it has cost me far too many hours of frustration by now.:S

Thanx!!

Also, you can only browse shared folders if using PAN. The guides are for LAP, which allows Internet sharing only.

For PAN you have to manually configure the Pocket PC (IP and DNS) and change the Bluetooth on your desktop from "Allow Internet Access" to "Allow Private Network". You may have to bridge connections (on Windows XP).

There's a bug on Windows and sometimes creating an ICS redirection will assign the address to your adapter. Simply change the from adapter back to its original address, keeping the Bluetooth as 192.168.0.1.

Also, on the Bluetooth adapter, enter the ISP DNS addres.

And change any firewall to allow communications from 192.x.x.x subnet.

ok done it, so now bt adapter is set up with ip address 192 168 0 1 subnet 255 255 255 0 and dns als assigned, do I need to fill in default gateway too? And now how do I get My Ipaq to communicate with adapter? When i check status in bt manager on Ipaq it says it is exchanging bytes sent and received but in windows bt adapter doesnt show any bytes received. It does show bytes sent.

Followed the guide (did it before by the way, but tried it again here's where it fails: after retrieving the network acces service it asks me for logon, i leave it blank and tap ok. But now it tries to connect through bt null modem to bt adapter, without result. It takes forever and doesnt seem to make any connection with desktop.

whats weird is that I can connect to activesync and then browse the internet, however I can only browse then for 5 minutes or so because then it disconnects until I re initiate the activesync connection

ffbido: ...it tries to connect through bt null modem to bt adapter, without result. It takes forever and doesnt seem to make any connection with desktop.
This is the symptom of either an incorrect ICS setup or a personal firewall blocking communications. IF you are running Windows XP SP2 I would double check the firewall configuration.

even with firewall turned off no connection with the internet is established, so I guess the ICS must be wrong however, I cant seem to see what goes wrong..
thanx for the help so far btw!
