hi all ...i suffered all the things u all passed through ...
well i was intending to connect my laptop with my pc in a internet connec tion sharing...
and my os on both computers is sp2 .... so i used the informatio on this forum to install WIDCOMM and at lassssssst it was installed on both computers ... and there comes the great problem that both widcommes sucecfuuly connect all services exept Network Access
and after dozen of trials i found that the microsoft emulator driver and the Widcomm can do the work

first: the computer that will provide internet acess , Must be having WIDCOMM
and the WIDCOMM there is set to share internet connection with the computer
will connect to it ..and thats described in the forum before
second: the computer that will gain access to internet wirelessly have to be using microsoft
driver Microsoft Radio and Microsoft Emulator
and in that way only if try to make Network access the connection wont fail

Welcome to Geekzone... The connection should work just fine with two PCs based on Widcomm. It could just be a firewall configuration problem.

As for the Windows XP Bluetooth, it can only be a client, as you found out, since it does not have the servers bits in it.

Are you using the Widcomm software that came with your device?
