hello everyone
i am using belkin bluetooth adaptor in both my desktop and laptop, i have been lucky enough to successfully pair the two computers and connect the network access, however i am to go to the internet from my laptop, when i check the status i see that my laptop is sending signal (kb) however my desktop is not responding, i have checked all the options and setting. Also, i have read the post regarding things to check if internet sharing doesnt work.
Please advice a solution.

Welcome to Geekzone. You have to check that your laptop is correctly sharing the connection - are you using the correct IP address on the Bluetooth adapter (on the server side)? Is it being blocked by a firewall? Do you have correctly configure a DNS server in all adapters?

The list is long - check our Bluetooth Guides again - both the troubleshoot list and the guide on sharing the Internet connection.
