    Laptop Bluetooth and Network Experts Please

    Doe anyone here have a laptop and was able to connect to the internet through a desktop computer, but using bluetooth technology?

    I am having trouble setting it up. I am using Windows XP. I have a bluetooth dongle on my desktop computer, and the desktop has internet access. The laptop has bluetooth built in. I have paired the two successfully, and have run the network wizard which I am pretty sure has been done correctly.
    On the desktop PC, in Control Panel, I went to Bluetooth Configuration. Then under

    Local Services> Network Access, under properties, I selected.

    Allow other devices to access the Internet/LAN via this computer.

    I don't know what else to do. Your help/advice appreciated.

    This is not easy: from two references...

    click on the Bluetooth LAN Access Service Icon.. its second right of the dial-up icon.
    but, connection between two computer via LAN depends upon many thing.. you have to assign ip address first.
    You have to setup a network. Go to Control Panel> Network Setup Wizard>
    Click once> Cick Next two times > Select First Option
    Then select the bluetooth DUN modem (If u use USB Modem then select USB Modem)

    When the setting will be configured then u have to restart ur computer.

    U should be able to share internet connection.


    After restarting u can manually set up ur and other PC's IP addresses.

    Say, ur IP is;
    Subnet MASK:
    Default Gateway:


    For the other PC (Which will share the internet);

    SUbnet Mask:
    Default Gateway: (it should be ur IP).
