I have a Dell x50 pda with bluetooth and want internet access from my laptop, have been looking around the net and it seems like I need Network Access on my laptop for this to work.
How do I add this?

Have you paired them?

Yes I have them paired. They see each other and can transfer files but to get the pda to access the internet through the laptop, I need network access on the Bluetooth.

Does the PDA have network settings on it?? There should be a BT WLAN / PAN icon on the laptop under network connections to configure it on the laptop
