handheld pc internet connection through main pc connection

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows anything about connecting handheld PCs to the internet through PCs which already have a broadband connection. I have a current connection to a LAN which consists of a router which the broadband connection plugs into. ZoneAlarm Firewalls are present both on my PC and the router.

I was thinking of maybe a bluetooth connection from the handheld PC to the desktop PC which would enable the handheld to browse the web locally (this would just be for home use). Would this work? Any pointers / advice / links would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jon Jackson

Since you mentioned Zone Alarm I assume you're using windoze...
You can use wifi or bluetooth if your handheld supports it. Since you have a router/firewall you can use a wifi AP such as the SMC2655W or a bluetooth AP
