Establishing Bluetooth network connection with PDA
Posts: n/a

I'm using XP SP2, and I'll first say that I *DID* at one point get this to
work, but now cannot...

-Palm Tungsten T3 with bluetooth
-Ultra USB Bluetooth dongle

-Followed manufacturer's "SP2" setup procedure to the letter, from their
-I Paired the devices properly WITHOUT any username or password (it worked

-On PDA I set up the Bluetooth connection to use DNS of

Now I constantly have a red X through my Bluetooth Network icon (says it's
unplugged). I can connect from the PDA, at which point XP says I have
connected to the dial-up networking. I believe this is wrong, as I think it
should say it's connected the "Bluetooth Network" not the Dialup Network (as
the bluetooth network would then make that connection on the PC). At this
point, the PDA says "signing on..." and hangs until it times out.

Back when I remember it working PROPERLY, the Bluetooth Network icon would
light up and say "connected at 700kbps".

Is there some sort of authentication getting hung up here? I searched high
and low but could not find what to do.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
