    New toy arrived today. Now how the hell do I work it?

    Got a new computer today, a Compaq Presario 2.4ghz laptop. Now I got another bluetooth USB dongle, as it is apparently 'easy' to setup internet connection sharing through them. (The PC in our house has got one for talking to the mobile phones)

    Yeah right. I tried it on the old laptop and got it work once under Windows ME. Now I have two PCs with XP on I haven't got a clue!

    HELP me!!!

    you just need to set up a network connection,

    if u go to net work connections on your mane pc and run the setup program it should make a file for you to run on the laptop and her presto its all done in under 20 mins

    I know how to do that, but I need to 'bridge' connections or something with Bluetooth, so that the Laptop can use the network for Internet access?

    I can get the two machines to share drives with a crossover RJ45 cable but that is pretty pointless for a portable machine
