Hi,

Is there any way to permanently disable dial up networking and network access under widcomm bluetooth software as I dont have any need for the two.

Im using a billionton usb 1.2 adapter with widcomm 4.0.1.2101 software.

Ive tried the following

1) Under bluetooth setup wizard>i want to configure the bluetooth services that this computer will provide to remote devices network access and dial up networking is unchecked.

Under network access "startup automatically" is disabled and "do not alow network connections to this computer" is selected. The "secure connection" box is checked and grayed out so it cant be unchecked.

Under dial up networking the "startup automatically" and "secure connection" boxes are unchecked.

2) Ive uninstalled the bluetooth network adapter and modem connection under device manager in windows xp sp2.

Whenever I do the above, the bluetooth network adapter and modem connection come back and install their components.

The easy way is to disable both under the device manger, but Id like to learn a way to disable the two from within the widcomm software.

Thanks

Welcome to Geekzone... There's no way to remove the components from the software. To disable them however, simply following the step (1) outlined before should be enough to prevent anyone connecting to the service.
