What connection do you have (Dial up or Broadband)

On the XP pc, go to Control Panel - Network Connections and open the Network Setup Wizard. This will talk you through the process.

I have broadband, and i have gone through network setup wizard and it has bridged my bluetooth connection which i use for my pda.

is there an easier way to do this and what do i need to do on my Win 2k laptop??

thanks for ya help.

If you can't both bridge your bluetooth and share your broadband on the same connection, then you will probably have to invest in a wireless adsl router.

Look at this as a typical example: click here

With this one, you also get a much faster wireless USB connector: click here

the router is out straight away as 65 quid is too much lol.

is there any way i can do it with just the usb adaptors?

thanks again for the help.

If you can't both bridge and share, you will probably have to choose which way to go.
