HI Folks,

Here is an easy one for you !!

I am using a BlueSoleil 1.6.1.1 adapter to connect my Nokia 6230 to a HP Compaq NX9110 laptop.

I want to create a connection which will allow me to use the phone as a modem (DUN) to browse the internet on the laptop using IE.

I have created a paired connection between laptop and phone. A dialup connection (*99#) to Orange (UK) has also worked. I have a "G" in a box on the phones display. I noticed windows update is recognising the connection because it started to automatically download and install an update. if I go " Start, Run, CMD" and at the prompt "ping www.wired.com" I get 4 packets sent, 4 received, 0 lost.

However when I open a browser "IE " I get page cannot be displayed.

Sorry this explanation is so long, I had to get all the details down so you guys may be able to help me.

Cheers for your time

Yogi

Welcome to Geekzone... Could you please run IPCONFIG /ALL and check if the network configuration is correct? Does it show a valid IP address, gateway, DNS, etc?

Also, perhaps Internet Explorer is configured to always dial a specific connection? Check in Options | Connections. The best way is to have it set to "Never dial a connection", so it uses the one available when needed (in this case you have to manually connect even if using dial-up on a landline).

Hello Frietasm,

Thank-you for your reply, sorry I havn't got back to you earlier.

JTLYK This problem is now RESOLVED !!

It was a small program called Firewall client which was configured to use ISA server.
This prevented the browser from functioning correctly.

Thanks for you time I do appreciate it.
