Hello astro_boy... Do you want to use the Internet available on your computer, from your phone (Internet > Computer > Phone)? Or do you want to connect your computer to the Internet through your phone (Computer > Phone > Internet)?

Also, the Bluetooth hardware you have should have come with its own software. You should use this one, or the Windows software, since other Bluetooth software may not work with this hardware at all.

You should only need to have a serial connection, which the Microsoft Bluetooth software provides. However, the NGAGE will need the access through mrouter, which I am pretty sure does no provide this anymore - used to in older version, but this has been changed.

I don't know if the old one would work with newer devices. The mrouter and Symbian devices are fiddly to work with - in the Bluetooth case you have to connect from the device to alert the PC you want to connect. The PC will disconnect and initiate its own connection back to the device.

Have you tried initiating the connection from your NGAGE?

Welcome to Geekzone. Please look Bluetooth mobile as a GPRS modem for laptop and desktop - fast configuration.

Any questions please create a new thread - this is not related to the original post in this thread.
