I hope someone out there might be able to help me. I have been trying to follow the instructions in the guides to set my Tungsten (T2) up for Blutooth web surfing through my desktop.

However I run into a problem when I try to 'Connect' on the hand-held. After initialising for about 1 second, it comes up with an error which says:

Timeout. Could be bad
Cable or faulty
Modem. (0x0305)

And no connection gets made. I have tried the obvious, and 'Googled' the error, but most of the sites I can find talk about the Bluetooth radio not being on. I have checked, and mine is definitely on…

Hopefully someone may be able to help me out here… Thanks in advance for any advice you can give

Just checking:

  1. Have you gone through the common connection issues in this article? LAN Troubleshooting

  2. Ran the script as referenced in Tungsten article?

  3. If above doesn't fix, please give a little more detail on your settings and exact steps in setup.

Also, have a look in our Bluetooth Guides and follow all the screenshots to check all the configuration on your Palm. It seems to me that your Connection is pointing to Serial, not Bluetooth.
