Laptop Diaries X (about:bluetooth)

For those of you in a hurry to use the Belkin transceiver with a Nokia 6310i on an XP/SP2 enhanced laptop,

  1. get their FAQ for XP/SP2 users, its somewhere around here...
  2. install their software,
  3. manually follow the FAQ instructions, (involves deleting the Microsoft Bluetooth device driver by using the XP Control Panel, "System" applet and the Device Manager)
  4. Go to "Bluetooth Places" and this will discover your phone & create a modem for you.
  5. Use the Network Connections panel to create a dial up agent. This needs to be associated with an ISP i.e. a phone number, login/password etc.

This will give you a GSM modem connection to the internet.

This is a condensed version of this article on my blog here....
