The reality - Accessing the World in a Unwired Way
So far so good, what the advertising told me. So I was curious if the reality looks as the product definition and advertising. Because I have the Ericsson T39m and a colleague of me has it too, we tried playing tennis on the mobile phones via Bluetooth last week and it worked without any problems and smooth as expected. Because of this I hoped it worked in the same way between my iPAQ and my mobile phone or a second Pocket PC or Notebook. Also I have a long experience in setting up remote networks and direct PC/LAN connection I thought it might works near the same way.

As you are connection devices via radio it didn't. First you have to setup the iPAQ and the mobile phone, but not the second Pocket PC or Notebook.

However, before you can setup your Pocket PC, you have to install the necessary Bluetooth driver via ActiveSync on your Pocket PC or directly on your Notebook.

My Personal View: Dial-Up Networking with the Ericsson T39m via Bluetooth

Hi,

anyone tested the anycom card on Pocket PCs. I need something that allows me to establish multiple serial ports, plus have control of the RS 232 signals over the emulated serial port connections
