    Ive googled on this and cant find any info
    on success in doing this for my P800. (n.b. It
    works with a GPRS account fine).

    Ive got both the cable and bluetooth setup
    well on my laptop, but cant work out
    how to setup the P800 to use the laptops
    Bluetooth network access services (uses
    the internet connection sharing of WinXP).

    Any pointers or just too annoyingly hard?

    It doesn't work with Internet Connection Sharing: that was the mistake I
    made for a while too

    If you pair the phone and open the serial connection from the computer to
    the phone (as if you wanted to synchronise) using the SE software, then set
    up a dummy connection on the phone, it will allow you to use the connection.
    Simple as that.

    AIUI the connection through to the software is actually made with PPP over
    serial, so I'm not even sure if it was intended to work or whether it was
    just a useful bonus.

    With Opera it works without even needing any settings, but with the email
    client you'll need to create a dummy GPRS account which has no settings to
    use.

    so what handles the routing? the SE software on the host machine? suppose
    the host machine is already behind NAT - does it still work?

    Yes, it works. The SE software is the same as the Nokia mRouter actually.

    Well, the connection is via Serial, and the SE software will accept a PPP
    connection. In terms of functionality it'll work the same, except that
    there's a bit of software in the middle that wouldn't be needed if using the
    BT LAN Access. You're right, would be good to have LAN Access and connection
    could be to another computer or BT LAN Access Point (very handy these
    things).

    Re: P800 use PCs LAN for net access

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem, cos whenever I tried to connect
    my P800 thru the docking to my PC (WinXP), the mRouterRuntime MFC
    Application error page would come up and the connection fails!

    Your help is very much appreciated, it's buggering me for weeks! thanks!
