Hello

I have a problem. I want to share the internet connection from my Desktop computer to my laptop.

I have this things:
- ADSL USB modem with 1Mb/s connection
- 1 Bluetooth dongle Zoom class 1 (100 meters) USB
- 1 Trust dongle Bluetooth USB device (100 meters)

I left two photos about my two bluetooth usb devices:


Zoom USB device


Trust USB device

Ok, then I want to do those things but I'm confused and I'm searching for one step by step guide to do that:

1 - Share internet connection (from the desktop computer to the laptop by using bluetooth devices)

2 - Create a LAN between the two computers to allow anyone to open folders, search files, etc... of each one

That's all.

I tried to do a lot of things but anyone worked fine. So please if you can help me...

Thank you very much.

Regards from Spain!

Ataliano,

What operating systems are you using on both machines (XP home, XP pro, 2000, 98 etc) and which service packs do you have installed? (if you don't know, right click on My Computer/ properties to find out Service pack level)

regards,

from Spain

Thankyou very much.

I have now a LAN between my two computers, I have also shared my connection and it works fine without Zone Alarm Pro.

But in the main computer, when I open Zone Alarm Pro (it opens automaticaly) the connection in the second PC is blocked, second PC don't have conection...

Anyway, I have introduced de Subnet IP and mask into the ZA Pro, but anyway don't works...

Anyone knows how to configure Zone Alarm Pro to allow acces to another computer with a LAN?

I have the Connection IP in Firewall -> Zones and the IP and mask of Bluetooth Network (192.168.0.0 and 255.255.255.0) into Firewall -> Zones also

Thanks and regards

Zone Alarm must be set in Medium. I don't like it very much anyway, and if it doesn't work I would simply remove it and use the Windows XP Service Pack 2 built-in firewall (this is what I use in all my computers).

Hi all,

I am using two Billionton Class 1 USB Bluetooth adpter. My problem is the same sharing internet on two PCs. I am able to access lan and other things but I am not able to share internet.

I am using the software which came along with the dongle, though it says Billionton but the screen shots look similar to the Widcomm software. I want to know what can be the problems? In the device manager in Bluetooth Devices, i get Billionton USB device..is this OK?

Kindly help.

Regards,

Alok

I am not an expert but in my experience If you are able to access lan but not surf the web then its probably a firewall problem. Zone alarm does NOT play nice to ICS... try Sygate Personal Firewall.

Sorry to butt in but I've actually got a question... is it possible to share internet between THREE PCs by ICS?

simple-d: Sorry to butt in but I've actually got a question... is it possible to share internet between THREE PCs by ICS?

To ensure quality of the forums, and a comprehensive response to your question, please post a new thread about this. (Its a worthwhile question, but adds nothing to this thread).

Cheers.
