    Bluetooth GPRS

    I purchaced a USB Bluetooth dongle the other day to use with my Ericsson T68 for internet on the dash pc.....

    Im running Windows XP Pro with Service pack 1 which supposedly includes Bluetooth support.

    With the dongle attatched, the PC sees the T68 and they can pair...so I set up the DUN (Dial Up Networking) to dial *9***2# and hit connect......BAM....it connects and I can surf....so feeling like I accomplished something, I went to bed.

    Woke up this mornging and decided to try it again (the pc was running all last night and absolutly no changes were made to ANYTHING.......and it wont connect....gives me the error that "the port is already taken or the modem is not configured propperly"

    Any ideas??

    Try shutting the phone off for a min. or two and power it back on and try...if you haven't done this already.

    just a thought along the same lines as the last post, try restarting the computer. its not something you want to do all the time, but at least you'll know one solution if you cant find any more.

    Im sorry to hear your luck, but bluetooth still seems to be a bit flaky. my boss has an ipaq with bluetooth support, and has tried 3 differnt makes of bluetooth pc adapters, and only got the pocket pc to sync with the pc via it breifly with the second one, and compaq has no answers.

    Did you disconnect from the internet properly, or simply walk away (untill the phone was out of range)?
    If you just walked away the computer and/or phone might think they are still connected and not let you connect again.
    Incedentally, my XP has never really liked my bluetooth dongle - check some other services (ie connect to serial port of phone) to see if it is just DUN that has stopped working, or the whole bluetooth connection.

    Superfly,

    Who's network are you on. If you are on AT&T, they've got software that's even faster than using the # sign connection method. Give their service department a call and they'll be more than happy to direct you do it.

    I actually downloaded the non us spec drivers for the usb bluetooth dongles that I am using that allow a DUN setup and it now works like a champ as I am typing this on the GPRS connected via Bluetooth to my Ericsson T68 and its pretty reliable too.

    Mr. Pute..I tried to use our Mobile Connection Software (I work for AT&T Wireless ) but it still would not connect and has only limited support for bluetooth connections..... but its up and running like a champ! this is a dry run test from the house to see how it went....gonna reinstall the comoputer in the car and see how it goes from there...i will post later with an update.

    Ill run some connection speed tests in various locals to see what i come up with..

    Thanks for all of the help gang!
