Ok so you all are probably tired of hearing posts of people trying to get internet access on their PDA’s thru their PC/Laptop using BT, sorry for posting ANOTHER topic but I am completely stuck. I have read thru the forums and Bluetooth guides and still no luck.

So here is the low down.
I have a verizon VX6700 (running windows mobile 5.0), and my Dad in the same office is sporting the 6600 (running windows mobile 2003 SE). Unfortunately, we don’t have WiFi in our office, which would solve my problem but not help the 6600.

I have been trying to share the internet connection on my pc using the Linksys USBBT100 Bluetooth device. The problem is that I am behind a router (netgear RP614) with the IP 192.168.0.1, thus ICS is not going to work like I want it to. I have Nat32 but just can’t seem to get it to work. I have read thru TONS of posts and still am lost. Please help me out.

Welcomed to Geekzone. You should not bother doing this over Bluetooth LAN Access, becuase the XV6700 does not have the proper client for this.

Your only option is to establish an ActiveSync connection over Bluetooth and this will automatically give you Internet access.

freitasm, my setup is similar, I would like to ask the same question as Hayden503: How do I configure my setup? I don't yet have NAT32 software, do I need it?

MIO A201 Pocket PC running Windows Mobile 5
Netgear DG834 Router (using IP address 192.168.0.1)
Windows XP (SP2) Desktop PC
MOBYMEMORY USB BT dongle (recognised my Windows XP SP2 - no drivers required)

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Geekzone t001... The answer is the same as my first reply in this thread...

Thanks for the welcome and quick reply. I've established an activesync connection over bluetooth but I can't see how I can browse the web from my Pocket PC. I'm not too clued up with networking so it's probablly something obvious... what do I select on the Pocket PC, hope you don't mind me asking?

Please ignore my previous question, I've discovered how to connect. One  annoying problem I seem to have though is, if I lose the bluetooth connection I have to reboot everything, Desktop PC and and Pocket PC to get everything working again.

This is probably a driver problem on your PC... Not much can be done I am afraid. Reinstalling the Bluetooth software may fix it - or break it even more. Even reinstaling the OS is not 100% guaranteed.

If you want to discuss this problem, unrelated to the original poster, please create a new topic for it.

I hope I'm not asking the same question yet again....  you can flog me if I am.  I have a vx6700 with Verizon service.  This phone is web capable, and has broadband, high speed access.  I would like to essentially use my phone as a wireless modem, and through USB linkage, have internet access on my laptop vis-a-vis my broadband phone connection.  My phone connection is fast and reliable, and unlimited, so my goal is to eliminate paying for broadband at home and broadband on my phone, and just utilize the connectivity of the phone for all my connection needs.  This seems like it should provide the best of both worlds, is this possible???

looks like I should've started a new topic. Sorry, I'll do so.
