Share an internet connection with a Bluetooth device
Authored by: paxeaxe23 on Apr 29, '04 06:54:18AM

I have been trying to get this to work for several months now, so I will finally ask for some help:-))

I have ADSL internet through a wireless router which I recieve with my airport on my Powerbook Ti. I am running Panther and have a DLink DBT 120 USB bluetooth dongle which has had the firmware updated with the Apple update, and I want to share with my Palm Tungsten T3.

A few of questions, the answer to which may or may not be the cause of my problems:

Does this hack work with Panther?

I follow the instructions to enable internet sharing, but since I am sharing FROM airport, I don't get any options to share TO in the internet sharing pane How do I get this to work?

I can't seem to pair my T3 with my Powerbook, from the T3, but can pair from my Powerbook to the T3. perhaps there is a problem here?

I purchased MarkSpace missing sync, and have this installed, but I don't seem to be able to get even this to work via the cradle!

Thanks for your help!


Frank

I have the same problem. Does anyone out there know the work around. I have an Ambicom USB Bluetooth adaptor and a graphite ABS running as a bridge off a Lynksys router. I can not get the sharing prefs to allow me to share over airport. ARRRGGHH!!!

I just got it working with my gf's T5. Follow the steps, and to test it manually run the ISharing script (you'll need to sudo it). Also after everything is all done. Go into Sharing>Internet and if you're using Airport for your internet, share your internet FROM Airport TO ethernet.

After that everything should work. Also if it's having trouble, try dropping your firewalls.
