    Hello, All.

    I thought I could access internet thru my network connected Bluetooth AP, but when I try to "connect" under the Network pref, it says:

    Error: GPRS connection not available...

    I have the Bluetooth AP as a trusted device

    I configured a network connection using bluetooth.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Thank you, Bill, for the link, but I don't find anything that pertains to my setup. I should have been more descriptive.

    I use a Belkin F8T030 Access Point connected to a Linksys router. The article seems to focus on a BT adapter plugged into a computer and use ICS. I believe I have a good "BT connection" on the 680. Its the "network" pref that I'm not sure of.

    One question that comes to mind, the primary DNS that it asks for in the network pref, is that for the BT AP?

    Anyway, thanks anyway.

    I actually use BT connection for my Treo 680 at home. At the beginning I also had some issues with setup. My hardware is 6$ bluetooth bluesoleil dongl and Windows XP powered sony VAIO notebook. In order to be connected I have to set up bluetooth local network (see how to do it in manual for your BT access point) and share my internet connection (comes from WiFi connection with Verizon ADSL gateway) (you can do it in windows XP control panel->Network connections->Share internet). After this I paired my notebook with treo 680, set up custom connection in preferences (Connections->Custom->Connect to local network Via->Bluetooth, Device-> my notebook) and set up new network (Preferences-> New conection (name as you like it)-> Connection->select the one you set up at previous stage,User Name and Password -> live them blank.
    This configuration should work. Hope this will help you

    NO WAY, I've been trying to connect my 680 w/ that bluesoleil dongle and no luck. Been trying for WEEKS!

    Are you using their cheese-*** software? I'm trying to share my PC's connection to my 680, no laptop at all.

    If this work, MY GOD ....

    I will try when i get home.

    WOW, all I did was go to sleep last night, and this morning my 680 was able to connect to this Belkin AP and my LAN!

    Now I get to see what Blazer is all about!

    My bluesoleil works fine. Here is the setup.
    Software: Bluesoleil 1.6.1.4 Release 05.06.06
    Stack version 05.04.05 20050408
    In My services tab of this software choose propierties,
    then choose Personal area network service tab. In this tab check autostart and Set up bluetooth Personal area network and Enable DHCP service.
    In LAN access tab choose auto start.
    In windows XP in network connections select your working internet connection, right click on that and choose Propierties, then choose advanced tab. Select allow other network users to connect through computer internet connection. Click apply. Restart computer.
    Set up for the treo is in my prievious post.
    This should work.

    The signs you are tolking about means that your setup is fine!!!
    Not solid blue bluetooth logo (blue silhuette) - this means that treo succesfully connected to the network
    green bluetooth logo on computer means that something (e.g. your treo) succesfully connected to bluetooth local network.
    Now everything should work.
    Check the network connection in control panel when you see this green sign. Please provide me the info you see there.
    Do you have firewall turned on on you computer? This can prevent sharing of you internet connection with bluettoth network. Hope this help you.

    Try Softick PPP. Although this cost some bucks it works very good.

    I'm using m-router (which is free), but I have issue with streaming media. Check this thread in BrightHand for more detail.
