    Can you use the Xv6600......

    hooking to a wireless connection via bluetooth through a PC???? I want to use my wireless broadband connection using my PC as a bridge and access that on my XV. I looked around on the forum and I couldn't find an answer. Any help would be great!

    Yep u can,
    Go into the bluetooth menu and press "new"
    then click on "connect to a network"
    and follow the steps
    DO NOT FORGET THAT YOUR PC NEEDS TO HAVE THE IP: 192.168.0.1
    if this is not true, then u wont be able to access the net.
    Hope this helps,

    ^^ You also need to make sure that windows 'Internet Connection sharing' setting is switched on (This will automatically change the hosts IP), and that the network settings on your phone are set up like you would be using DHCP. Windows fakes a DHCP server when using Internet connection sharing.

    Couldn't you just do a bluetooth active sync and share the internet connection through that?

    Active Sync doesnt have this option. It is a windows thing. Just a hint too - Turn off ActiveSync when using bluetooth as this chews the BT bandwidth

    Same thing. Is your router a DHCP server also? If so in the BT Network settings, you shouldnt have to change a thing. If not set an IP in the range specified on all other computers.
