Hello all. Can someone please save me from going mad!! I've been trying to connect my Pocket PC to the internet through my PC like so many others on this forum but I just can't do it. Can anyone help? I have an Acer N30, a Peak Bluetooth USB Dongle (Bluetooth Ver. 1.2 Class 1) and i'm running XP. I've heard you can do it through Bluetooth Activsync. Is this true?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Geekzone... The easiest way is through ActiveSync over Bluetooth. Not the fastest but by far the easiest. Then you can try using LAN Access - which is tricky because requires network configuration and if you do it wrong you can ended up without Internet Access on your PC.

For the ActiveSync way, just estabish an ActiveSync over Bluetooth. Your ActiveSync (on the PC) must be configured to share the Internet connection and it must be set to "Connect to Internet". This is in the options dialog.

Check our Bluetooth Guides for instructions.

My Activsync program does not have this option. The version I'm running is 3.7.1 Also do I have to change any settings in my Bluetooth program?
Cheers
