iBook unable to connect to internet via bluetooth connection/SonyEricsson T610
Posted on 2004-04-02
I am trying to connect to the Internet on my 12" iBook 700MHz 384 Mb ram Mac OSX v10.3.3 on which all software updates have been downloaded. The USB Bluetooth dongle is a Billiton, and phone SonyEricsson T610.
The iBook/T610 connection works fine - I can use the computer to browse files on the phone and download without problem. I have configured Internet Connect USB Bluetooth Modem adapter to dial the ISP using the T610 phone but am having problems with obtaining a connection.
I can see on the phone display "Calling xxxxxxxx" (the ISP dial-up number) but then the phone seems to cut the connection. The iBook screen then shows a pop-up message "Internet Connect - no carrier detected please check phone line connection and try again". If I just try dialling the ISP number on the phone itself then it connects fine, but for some reason the phone disconnects itself just after dialling the number when instructed by the bluetooth software.
Any suggestions please?
