    Connecting via bluetooth

    Advertisement



    I hooked up my son's Iogear GBU211 bluetooth USB adapter to my computer running WinXP MCE. I've gotten it to recognize the 8700g with no problem. I'm trying to see if there's a way to run the internet on the bb using this adapter since at home the connection would be alot faster through my broadband connection than what's on the bb (gprs/edge). The Local Services/Client Applications listed on the bluetooth config are:
    Printer
    Bluetooth Imaging
    Audio Gateway
    Headset
    PIM Sync
    Fax
    File Transfer
    PIM Item Transfer
    Dial-up networking
    Network access
    Bluetooth Serial Port (com9)

    On the bb it just says that it's paired to "chixor" (computer's name) and the services listed in the Bluetooth options are:
    Headset
    Handsfree
    Desktop Connectivity
    Wireless Bypass

    So...is there any way to do this? I'm not even sure what to do with the services listed on the bb but know that someone in here would know the answers! I've only had the bb for a month now, but the urge to figure out all the cool stuff it can do is very strong

    At the current moment there is no way to route the BB to use your computer's internet instead of the wireless network. When they launch the units with wi-fi that will change.

    Headset and handsfree or for bluetooth voice communications. Desktop is for data connectivy to transfer data to and from the pc (contacts, calender, etc.). I don't know what wireless bypass is for. Haven't seen that one before. Gonna have to research it when I get back on my pc.
