We all love internet for handheld computers. However, sometimes Bluetoth network access just doesnt work-then you need to do it the old way, with a serial port and a bluetoth router software that usually costs $$$. But we at TamsPalm found a better-and free-way!
The first thing that you need is M-Router, a software thast most of us will already know from their Symbian smartphones. You can get the developer edition for free here:
Install the program onto your Windows box and plug in the bluetooth dongle. This review was written on a Acer Aspire 5620 running Windows XP SP2 with a Epox BT-DG02A managed by the Microsoft bluetooth stack. After that, restart the box with the dongle plugged in, so that M-Router identifies it.
You can access M-Routers settings by clicking its icon in the taskbar. The settings are extremely easy to understand, so no screenshots until requested! In case m-router cannot identify your bluetooth dongle, you forgot to plug it in BEFORE m-router starts. Then, simply end m-router and restart it again…
Configuring the PalmOS side of life is very easy, basically you have a PC via Bluetoth connection like you already know it from Softick. After that, have fun!
In case any of this is not clear, please post a comment-you will be answered promptly.
