Question about Nokia N800

2 Answers

Bluetooth connection to desktop?

I just bought a Nokia N800 internet tablet, which can connect with wi-fi or bluetooth. I travel a good bit, so I love it. I researched it and deliberately bought a used N800, because it seems to be a better machine for my needs than the newer N810 at twice the price.

Anyway, I was wondering: is there a plug & play bluetooth or wi-fi adapter that would allow me to share a desktop's internet connection, for those times when I can't find wi-fi? The bluetooth dongles that I've seen all require the installation of software on the desktop, and I'd rather not ask my friends to do that.

Any suggestions?

No, PC internet connection is not shared with N800.
The only way to connect to the internet without a wifi signal is to pair your N800 with your cellphone (if it's GPRS and bluetooth capable) and share the GPRS connection.
You can do it with the connection manager of your N800

My Iphone wifi button is grey out


Resolution First, sync your iPhone or iPod touch to iTunes to backup your user information, Contacts, Calendar, and other data. Then try the following steps in order.
One On the device, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Check to see if the device now displays the Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth). If there is a Wi-Fi address and a Bluetooh address, then you're done with these steps and you can resync your settings and your media using iTunes.
If there's still no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address, then continue to step two.
Two On the device, tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Check to see if the device now displays the Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth). If there is a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address, then you're done with these steps and can resync your settings and your media using iTunes.
If there's still no Wi-Fi dddress or Bluetooth address, then continue to step three.
Three
  1. Restore the iPhone or iPod touch software (this erases all data on the device) using iTunes (see article 305744 for additional assistance).
  2. After the restore is complete, sync your previous settings (mail settings, text messages, notes, call history, contact favorites, and so on).
  3. Now see if your device shows a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth).
If there is a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address, then you're done with these steps. If there is no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address, then continue to step four.
Four If there is no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address listed after doing the above steps, then your iPhone or iPod touch may need to be repaired. See the iPhone Service FAQ or iPod Service FAQ for additional service information.

You can connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi, GPRS, Dial-up, or Work connections(such as VPN and proxy connections). If you are encountering problems :
.Open the Comm Manager and make sure Flight Mode (or Airplane Mode) is turned off.
.Make sure the connection method settings are correct before accessing the Internet.
.Make sure the connections have been activated (e.g. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc.).
