Dear freitasm

I hope that you can help me. I have tried to follow your guide to connect my Ipaq 3970 via my TDK USB BT dongle. I have managed to get network acess having updated the TDK driver software provided but cannot get ICS to work. My internet connection is via a usb network adapter through an NTL broadband set top box. My OS is XP Home SP1


1. I have tried to follow your article religoursly!
2. I have turned off the XP Personal firewall and have set my Norton Internet Security to advise me of any new programmes being blocked from the internet. Noting seems to be getting that far!
3. My BT adapter on my desktop is without DNS entry or Defualt gateway
4. My BT adapter on my desktop manually set to 192.168.0.1
5. All other NIC are diabled other than the Internet network adaptor which is set by DHCP to 80.7.70.36

6. I have run welcome.exe from \windows folder on Pocket PC to recreate configuration files used by Pocket Internet Explorer.

7. My BT software it set to "Allow other devices to access the Internet/LAN via this computer"

8. I have also tried to turn off ICs and use WinRouter Lite and can see the IPaq sending packets to the BT adapter but there is never an acknowledgement.

Can you please help?!!!!

Regards

Adrian Hall

I know with the current state of the Internet this is a risk, but the best thing you can do is to turn NIS off altogether, to test. You might have it on to notify of attempts to access the internet, but previous rules can be preventing any communications to happen. Or yu can start the monitor page (the one that show the rules passed/blocked), try an access from your iPaq and see if NIS receives the packet at all - and if blocks or passes it.

If you don't need it, I'd recommend to uncheck Share Network and Printer from your Network adapters before turning off the firewalls.

You are an absolute star! You were right it ws nothing to do with the ICS or Winroute - bloody Norton Internet Security!

I turned off NIS and it worked staright away. So I removed Winrouter and remade the share on ICS and it still worked like a dream. As soon as I turned NIS back on PIE could not find pages once again.

It too a bit of finding but by going to the Internet Zones menu in NIS you can use a wizard to allow trafiic from the BT network card, For good measure I also allowed access from any PC in the range 192.169.0.2 to 192.169.0.4 which should cover the IP picked up by the Ipaq from DCHP.

This worked so I can now turn my NIS back on to keep me snug and secure from all th bad people out there on the internet - though I suppose most of them will be going back to school now!!!

Thank you so much for your help - you have no idea how much time that I have put in trying to get this working!

Can you suggest a good IE optimiser for the Ipaq to make browsing a little easier on small screens?

Regards

Adrian Hall

Good to know it's working now... Have a look on this article for the PIE question.
