hello. I have 2 computers with 2 Bt dongles. no brand. both use widcomm 5.xx version.
I want to make a lan conexion between them but it seems i am not skilled enough.
I also want to use Internet sharing. my computer is A and the other one si B. Only B is connected to the internet.
Could anyone please write a tutorial about how to make it work?
i have set A and B as allow to create private network and allow to acces internet/lan, used dhcp and fixed IP, but I can`t manage to make it work. Please help.

ok. made the conexion. it stays conected. but does`nt work.

1. From A pc i ping the ip i assigned to B computer. I get a reply. If B pings A tere is no reply
.Tried with DHCP, result is the same.
2. If B browses View WorkGroup Computers it can see himself alone. In the case of A i get an error message.
3. I don`t have an strenght indicator in the conexion.

What must i do??
The workGroup is the same!
