    I added BT as new config in Network and connected to my PC. I setup PC to allow others to access network.

    When starting Web on Treo, the Blazer won't go to Web pages.

    Please help, thanks.

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for but I recall a thread with step by step instructions with the thread name "REVERSE DUN"

    puyi - I found "REVERSE DUN" thread. It had no answer as why Blazer won't work. Maybe P1 has a fix in its next FW/SW release?

    Dean's Guide provides the best instructions for this that I've seen.

    Bill - Thanks. I got the connection working. It is the Blazer that won't work via BT. Blazer works only via GPRS. Is there a fix?

    TIA

    I'm able to use Blazer through a BT LAN access (through the PC via bluetooth.) Blazer DOES require the phone (wireless) to be on, but it doesn't actually use the wireless/GPRS when your active network profile is the bluetooth. It just wants the phone to be on to launch it.

    One thing you may want to try is Softick PPP. I've had a little easier time making this work more consistently than the mothod where you share your boradband connection with your virtaul network adapter that is the bluetooth.

    Setup goes like this:
    1) Download and install Softick PPP.
    2) Set up your PC's bluetooth to do virtual COM port. It'll create a com port like COM 3 or COM 4 usually.
    3) Go to bluetooth app on the Treo and pair it with your PC's bluetooth (so it's trusted.)
    4) Go to prefs>Connections, create a connection to the PC to "Connect to:PC, Via: Bluetooth, Device:<your PC's trusted BT device>."
    5) Go to prefrs>Network, create a new network pofile and pick "Connection:<new BT connetion you just created>, Username: (none), password (prompt)" and under details you may want to increase or remove the idle timeout.

    6) Run softick PPP on your PC, make sure you enable the checkbox to work with your Bluetooth's virtual COM port (off by default.)
    7) Connect. Softick PPP will recieve the incoming connection from the bluetooth virtual com, and make it all work.

    The best part is you don't need to do any modifications to your Network adapter settings. I'd suggest undo sharing your broadband connection with the bluetooth virtual network adapter and even try to remove the virtual network adapter if you have problems.

    So on a new machine it's really quite simple. RUn and instlal softick PPP after you've created your BT virtual com port.
    Configure the Treo, and you're done.

    The only problems you'll have this way is accessing resources DIRECTLY on your PC such as a web server, ftp server, or even using MobileTS to access your WinXP desktop. Otherwise it's an easy clean alternative.

    I discovered this app when I had the Treo600 (no BT) and I wanted to get online through the USB cable to download/confiure stuff on Treo before I had an unlimited data plan. Treo 600 is also slower so it sped up things like creating bookmarks or offlining pages to Blazer for porability.
    You can use Softick PPP with the USB cable or Blutetooth.


    I also have the Belkin Bluetooth LAN Access point in my house. It has a sucky range, but it works pretty well for this and doesn't require my PC to be on.

    The Blazer proxy setting only works with the carrier's GPRS network. I do the following to make Blazer work over BT networking:

    Blazer -> Options -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Set Proxy

    Unclick the box next to "Use default carrier proxy".

    Derek - Did "Unclick the box next to "Use default carrier proxy" work with BT for Blazer? Are you on Sprint or Cingular/ATTWS?

    I tried and it won't work (I am on ATTWS

    Last night I tried the SoftickPPP setup and it worked great.. except I only get speeds around 230 kb/s. As far as I know bluetooth is capable of over 700 kb/s. Why the slowdown?

    I'm not sure, but I think it's a limitation of the Treo.
    Also, I've seen different speeds with different bluetooth adapters. I also see much lower speeds with my Belkin bluetooth LAN access point (only about 200kbps) then I do with my PC.
    The IoGear bluetooth adapter (10 meter version) was kind of slow.
    My CompuUSA 100 meter adapter (also sold under the brand ZOOM) is very fast.

    You mean the Treo is very fast with it or is it just fast on its own? Also, how fast is "very fast" - close/above 700?

    There has to be another palm web browser out there that has comparable, or better features. Can anyone recommend a Blazer replacement that doesn't use the carrier proxy defaults? I've tried iPanel and PocketLink - but neither of those seemed comparable in features and performance to Blazer - but they did let me use the reverse DUN connection. Any other suggestions?

    I have used Web Pro (patched to work Treo 600) via reverse DUN. I obtained it from http://smartphonetools.treobits.com/...webpro&x=2&y=4 site. It worked very fast until it resets. I guess the patch was not so good. I did my testing before the Sprint 1.08 firmware, it might work now. Web Pro is the only browser that works with OWA (Outlook Web Access). Search this site for more information on Web Pro. In the evening I use SnapperMail to retrieve all partial emails to be archived in full to SD card that night. It downloads the messages very fast but I have not measured the speed. By the way Xiino browser also works well with Bluetooth to PC network to internet. I use D-Link DBT 120 Bluetooth USB adaptor and at night I about one yard away.
