Bluetooth Internet Connection Problem

I was able to create a connection over bluetooth from my PC to PDA (Tungsten E2) and am able to send pictures and memos over it, but the internet connection does not work. The following error appears when I attempt to get a website to load: The page you requested cannot be displayed. The web site you are trying to access may be temporarily unavailable or the URL u entered cannot be resolved. Please check that you correctly entered the URL or try again later. This occurs for any site, event the ones which are preprogramed into the palm. What needs to be done so that this connection will work?

Re: Bluetooth Internet Connection Problem

You have established a bluetooth connection between your Palm and your PC, but you probably haven't configured your internet connection to be shared with the Palm. o do so, open My Network Places by right-clicking it and selecting Properties. The Bluetooth Network adapter was automatically created during the Bluetooth installation. Right click the icon and select Properties. In the General tab select the Internet Protocol components and click Properties. Write down all the information from the next dialog, and click Cancel. Back in the Adapter properties, select the "Sharing" tab and check "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection". Now, to configure the Bluetooth USB, right-click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray and select Advanced Configuration. Change to the Local Services tab and double click "Network Access". Change the type of service to "Allow other devices to acces the Internet/LAN via this computer". The alternative to this option will allow your device to connect to your computer as part of a LAN, but will not have internet access. Note the Configure Connection Sharing button: it'll open the configuration screens we've visited before. But some Bluetooth software will not have this button, hence I guided you through the other route . On your Palm device, a new Connection configuration is needed. From the Palm Launcher open the Prefs application, and switch to Connection. You'll see a list of connections and will tap the New... button. You can assign any meaningful name to this connection. Select the values as indicated in this image. Tap the device name to choose what computer will be used for this connection. Make sure your computer is in discoverable mode. If you tap the Details button you'll see the next screen. Now create a new Network access configuration, using the connection created in the previous steps. Tap Network to go to the next screen. Tap the New... button and enter a name for your Network access configuration. You shouldn't need a username and password. Tap the Connect button and you should see your LAN connection initiating. To make sure the connection is working, still in the Connect dialog, tap the menu Preferences and select Options. Choose View Log and the screen you see will show the negotiation between the Palm and the DHCP server on the network. To check your DNS is working, scroll to the bottom of this log, and enter PING and a hostname. Use the Return stroke as an Enter and If your connection does not complete, or if your Palm shows a Timeout error, try adding a script to this connection. This is common with Palm OS 4. Newer versions of Palm OS should not need any script to work. From the Network dialog, tap the Details button. On the next dialog tap the Script button. On this script dialog enter the following: SEND CR DELAY 1 SEND CLIENT WAITFOR CLIENTSERVER END Hope this works!

I would suggest creating a LAN connection between your PDA and a PC, preferably without an IP address so it doesn?t interrupt other connections. The best way to do it is through your Bluetooth program settings. Then set your internet connection to be shared with the LAN connection.

Connect to the internet via

Once the Socketcom Bluetooth card is inserted in the Toshiba Pocket e570 PC and the software has been loaded, the following instructions will set up the Toshiba PDA & Ericsson T39 mobile phone to connect to the Internet. Click on the Bluetooth icon in the bottom right hand corner. Click on Get Connected! Select the device under My Bluetooth phone is: In this case the Ericsson T39. The following information gives details on how to change the name of the Mobile device. Once this has been read, click on Next. The phone now has to be made discoverable so that the PDA will detect it. To do this, use the down arrow on the phone to select Extras and then click on Yes. Scroll down to Bluetooth and Click on Yes. Select Make Discoverable and a message on the phone will appear saying that the phone is discoverable for the next 3 minutes. Click on Next on the PDA. The PDA will now look for a Bluetooth device(s). Once the mobile is detected the PDA will search for the Device Name of the mobile. Click on Select and the devices will not connect and create a partnership. The following Device Bonding window should appear to create a bond between the PDA and phone. Click on Next. To create the bond a passkey must be entered on the PDA. This may be a between a 4-16 digit code. N.B. We would advise that the code be kept to a numeric sequence as the keys contain more than one letter on them, i.e. for the letter L, the number 5 key will need to be depressed 3 times. Once the passkey is entered, click on the Reply button. On the mobile, click on Yes to accept the incoming pass and then enter the same passkey. Click on Yes again to confirm. If the two values are correct, a message will appear on the phone telling you that the devices are bonded. The PDA should now congratulate you on your connection. For Internet access via Bluetooth, please follow the steps outlined below. The above instructions only need to be carried out each time a connection is required. However, the instructions below only need to be setup once. Click on Start, then Settings from the drop down menu. Click on the Connections tab at the bottom of the screen followed by the Connections icon utility. In the first drop box labelled "When needed automatically connect to The Internet using these settings" select New. Under the General tab you will be prompted to give the new connection a name, e.g. Bluetooth. Select the modem "Bluetooth Phone" and click on Next Make sure that the fields for the boxes titled Country code and Area code, are empty. The next field requires the full telephone number, including STD code, you wish to dial, i.e. your ISP telephone number. Put this in and click on Next. The next page contains a time out clause if the PDA is unable to connect within a set time. By default this should be 120 seconds. Make sure the tick box for "Wait befo
