Making a Bluetooth connection to a PC with a regular USB DSL modem.
Posted on 2003-02-19
How are you all? I would appreciate it very much if anyone could give me some advise with the issue below. I am a Uni student so i'm not as tech minded as most of you guy/girls - any help would be very appreciated.
I have a regular USB DSL modem i use for my DSL with AOL. I had wanted to use a Bluetooth DSL router i have but it seems AOL just wants to connect only with its own regular USB modem as provided, .... do you know of any way that i can connect using it via Bluetooth since sometimes i'll need to be mobile with my notebook and a wired USB connection won't do. Like, .... converting the USB modem to being able to connect to my PC using Bluetooth of some kind.
The problem is that it seems that i have to use the regular DSL modem for my connection that was provided to me as i think AOL's DSL software wont connect using any other modem.
The AOL modem has a line that go's to the DSL line and a type 'b' USB socket that go's to the PC. Is there a type any way of using a Bluetooth connection in replace of the USB wired one? Is there a type of Bluetooth adapter or converter that will connect to the rear of the AOL modems USB type 'b' socket and then communicate with a regular USB Bluetooth adapter/dongle on my PC?
I do have a Bluetooth DSL router with a type 'b' USB and an ethernet port although i dont think i'll be needing it now, .... unless there is a way i could connect the AOL modem to the router but then i dont know if AOL on my machine will see through the router to detect the AOL modem.
Any help would be appreciated, ... please reply to email@example.com
