    virtual private network. That is a portal, not an internet connection like wife or bluetooth can be.
    iPhone 3G (sorry Sprint, I have been to the mountain top!) <-- Sprint Mogul PPC 6800 (not enough memory) <-- PPC 6700 (loaner from sprint) <-- PPC 6600 (no EVDO) <-- G1000 (no SMS) Cardo Scala-500 BT

    get a usb bluetooth adapter for your desktop.

    Desktop then must be on all the time.

    you can't use bluetooth with the router but you could probably use a bluetooth dongle on a pc connected to the router. then you could probably network through the pc. i haven't done it myself but i'm pretty sure it can be done with the bluetooth networking options.

    I spent far too much of my time trying to get it to work - and failing. That seemed to be the experience of other people here as well.

    That having been said - if you create a BT activesync connection, the activesync HTTP proxy will allow you to surf the web from the handheld that way. I was looking for a way to access SMB shares.

    Note though that BT is not nearly as fast as wifi - so it almost defeats the purpose of using it with your router. If you want to surf with better speed (and since you already have wifi set up), get an wifi card for your PPC. - sheureka
    Do good. Be kind. Have fun.

    Besides the killing the speed advantage of WIFI with using a BT connection....you are limited to only 5-30 ft before you loose the connection.

    I noticed no difference in speed between my BT and wifi connections on my 6600. I have a 5mb dsl connection and I find that the ppc's speed of loading web pages is the bottleneck, not the connection speed of the network.


    Wifi has better range, but sucks battery, and you don't have an s/d card plugged in to download, listen to mp3's, etc.

    PPC-6700 - all shiney and new
