Welcome to Geekzone... If your Bluetooth devices are using the Widcomm software (most are) then you can follow these steps to share the Internet connection from your desktop to laptop.

If you are using BlueSoleil the steps are similar, but different screens to follow.

If you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth software then it's not possible.

Those steps are for Windows XP.

Which local area connection don't you have, the Bluetooth or the one connected to the Internet?

The Bluetooth local area connection is created by the install process when you install the Widcomm software. The one connected to the Internet is the standard LAN adapter (or dial-up if not using a broadband/LAN connection).

Because you share from the LAN connection to the Bluetooth connection, and that's how Windows ICS configuration works.

No need, the ICS will be established from the network adapter connected to the Internet/LAN to the virtual Bluetooth adapter.

Not really. The configuration is related to your internal network configuration and the external IP address has no bearings on this. You will have to look in our Bluetooth Guides for the article on how to troubleshoot ICS.

bUT you don't understand me. You configure local area conection but I haven't got this kind of connection. I have only "bluetooth network" (in LAN ) and " Neostrada Tp " (polish internet, dial-up). When I configure bluetooth network my computer show me, thath cable is plugged. I don't know what does it mean. Data don't send and don't receive. When I connect my laptop to deskop bluetooth icon is green on 2 devices, but they don't see each other. IP is ok on 2 machine. Do you know what's going on??

The dial-up is just another network connection - you can configure ICS from this connection to Bluetooth.

For what you tell I think you have not fully understood the concept of Internet Connection Sharing yet. Perhaps you should have a look on MSDN: Internet Connection Sharing overview before trying to share your connection.
