  • Possible to automatically join Bluetooth PAN automatically with Centrafuse?

    I have a treo750 running windows mobile 6.0. Currently I have to join my my personal area network on my treo manually in windows using bluesoleil.

    At this point i can get on the internet via iexplorer or centrafuse.

    Is it possible for centrafuse to join my PAN automatically? or by hitting a button? Is there a plugin for this?

    I would suggest ditching the bluetooth internet connection and install an app on your phone called WMWifiRouter. It turns your phone into a wireless router. Using that software on your phone, Centrafuse's WiFi functionality will automatically connect to your phone if you set everything right in CF and Windows. The speeds are faster than BT as well.

      Seconded, but he's gonna need this (or similar) though as well...

      And as a reference, this is WMWiFiRouter:

        Good call Mark... I just assumed he had WiFi built into his phone.

          I couldn't remember if the Treo 750 had it or not, but didn't think it did, so I had to do some Googlin' to confirm.

          Trying to keep track of the feature set on these phones is insane. I can't even remember who's running WinCE and who's running PalmOS!

            looks like i should have bought the ATT tilt with wifi.....that program looks freakin sweet though.....my next phone will have wifi again (previous HTC 8125 owner).

            Is there a easy solution for the PAN WM6 BT users who do not have Wifi?

              I'm not sure since I don't use PAN anymore, but the Bluetooth plugin (authored by Zorro) IS built-in to CF now. Play around with its settings and functionality and see if you can set an auto-connect. Otherwise, I would highly suggest grabbing the piece that midiwall linked to to add Wifi to your phone. The WMWifiRouter app is really sweet!

                Well, what do you want to spend for "easy" ?

                This is about $170 and uses a USB cable connection to your phone instead of Bluetooth:

                I've been looking at getting one, but they don't have official support yet for the Palm Centro. They have it internally, but it's not released.

                The tech support guys are quick to answer questions so hit them up for specifics.

                  Interesting device, Mark... never seen that one before. I wonder if it supports infrastructure mode, or ad-hoc only? That's my only complaint about WMWiFiRouter is that it only supports ad-hoc mode (although I understand why infrastructure is virtually impossible). While ad-hoc mode is sufficient for any Windows pc, I have an mp3 player with wifi that will only connect to infrastructure networks.

                    I'm pretty sure it'll support infrastructure... I haven't asked the specific question of them, but the specs sure make it sounds like it's a full blown router with a DHCP server. There are references to your "group" being able to work through it, NAT, VPN pass-through, etc. All that could be just with ad-hoc support on the front end, but I dunno why they'd go to those lengths without supporting infrastructure.

                      we do plan to integrate searching and connecting with Bluetooth internet devices... this will not be in the next release, but will be added soon...

                        Question

                        Does your phone recharge off of USB? If so, it may be possible to route a USB wire to your charge area in your car and charge your phone and use the internet compatibility at the same time.

                        Granted the Bluetooth PAN does no require you to plug the phone in-- but I find I always recharge my phone in the car anyways.
