Is it possible to share my pc internet connection with my Mitac Mio A201 which has Windows 5 through Bluetooth and if so how?

Im using Widcomm drivers on the PC.

I have read loads of posts on loads of sites and Windows 5 is hardly ever mentioned.

Any help gladly accepted :-)

Welcome to Geekzone. If you are using Windows Mobile 5 then your only option is to establish an ActiveSync connection over Bluetooth and browse while connected. The Internet access will be automatically provided by ActiveSync.

The Bluetooth software on current Windows Mobile 5.0 devices does not provide LAP or PAN client, so other types of access are not possible.

Thanks for the reply.

ActiveSync conection through Bluetooth does not seem to work either.

I will do some more reading and try and get it working.

Thanks again.
