    The guide works for TE2 as well. The most important issue I had was to override the microsoft bluetooth driver with the belkin bluetooth driver. Everything else fell into place nicely afterwards.

    Hi

    So are there any 802.11g and bluetooth adsl routers out there? Although the belkin device is an option, I want to reduce the number of devices overall.

    Any suggestions welcome

    ps any inside info on new EXX devices with built in wifi.

    Thanks

    I've got my TE2 connecting with my home desktop, to Hotsync and surf my cable modem connection, via a D-Link BT120 Bluetooth dongle, using a network service I set up and named "BT to Daewoo".

    I bought a second D-Link BT120 for my office Mac, and set up a new network service named "BT to Mac".

    Question:
    How do I switch between "BT to Daewoo" and "BT to Mac" as necessary? I can choose the network service I wnat from the drop-down list, but in the Prefs for Bluetooth, if I tap "Setup Devices"/"PC Setup", it looks like I'll be overwriting one setup with another.

    Is anybody currently doing this?

    Dean - just a quick thank you for your explicit instructions in getting my E2 to talk to the Internet via my PC. I really couldn't have done it with out them.

    I'm glad the guide is still helpful for everybody out there.

    Klaatu,

    You must make two seperate connections following my guide as you have done.

    Do not use the built in Bluetooth connection creator.

    Is it impossible to connect to the internet with the E2 using the computer's connection, using the E2's set up program?

    I've read through Dean's guide but have questions. My PC is a Vaio with built in Bluetooth. It connects to the internet and my home network via a router. The rest of my computers are hard wired into the router.

    It was easy to get the TE2 and Vaio to see eachother via BT and BT syncing works without a hitch. But I haven't been able to establish an internet connection yet.

    1. I don't know if the Vaio BT is set up for networks
    2. In the properties tab for my Vaio wireless network connection the ICS option does not appear. (Not grayed out... it's just not there)

    What to do???

    Oops! I left out a detail.

    The Vaio connects to the router via a wireless network connection.
