Hi m8s!

First of all, really nice and informative forum, without the articles here I could never get my Ipaq configured for connecting to the internet! At the moment everything is working fine with one exception:

I have to configure manually when i'm connecting to the internet with Internet Explorer if I would use bluetooth connection or GPRS connection. When I do not choose "Bluetooth Network Acces" the Ipaq always dials with GPRS. And when I use "Auto configure" then the Ipaq also always uses GPRS, doesn't matter if bluetooth is enabled or not.

Is it possible to configure the system that it uses Bluetooth Modem when bluetooth is enabled and GPRS when bluetooth is not enabled automatically?

If yes, how does it work?

Thx a lot and best regards
The Immortal

Bluetooth connections are always manual... You have to manually connect your iPAQ to a Bluetooth access point since an automatic connection is not available.

Thx for your reply! That I have to connect manually to the access point is clear, but I wanted to know if there is a solution that the bluetooth modem is choosen automtically for internet access when I'm already connected to the acces point! My Ipaq always uses GPRS connection when I do not manually choose "BT Network Access" under modems!

best regards#
