Bluetooth internet sharing

I have two pc's, one has a broadband internet connection, I have just bought two bluetooth usb dongles to 'share' the internet connection between these two computers, but I am unable to connect them, they can't seem to detect one another, they are both in 'detectable' mode. any ideas?

Are you using ICS to share the connection or do you have a router?

Also, See if this post applies to you:

"I am just going through it and it appears that the bluetooth adapters are everything you need. Mine came with software that makes it work (WIDCOMM 1.4.2).
What is extremely important is that the Bluetooth adapters you get MUST SUPPORT network services. Not all adaptors support all possible services (such as file transfer etc, but the service you really need is network adapter). So check carefully what you buy. I have got Bluetake dongle BT007SV with 100m access and BT009X with 10m access and they work well so far. The price difference between the two is minimal, if your signal will go through walls I suggest the 100m dongle." from homenethelp.com

It does have network support, I have finally got both machines networked via Bluetooth(they can file share with each other, and Ping) but I need to know how to access the Internet via this connection!
