OK, here is the same tired old question, I have never seen a real answer...

I want to get OUT to the Internet from my IPAQ 5555 using bluetooth link through my LAN connected DELL Laptop.  I DONT want a file transfer utility, I DONT want to see files or active ync on my DELL, I JUST want explorer on my IPAQ to be able to browse the internet using the connetcion on my Dell D800. I have XP SP1 installed, no SP@ at this time. I DONT want the fact that I am doing this to in ANY way impact the DELL connection that already exists on the Laptop. For some reason as soon as I select the 'let users connect to the internet from this device' and I select the DELL wired connection in the pull down box, I lose my DELL connection to the internet, and I seem to take on the characteristics of a router (my IP becomes instead of my LAN IP assigned by my LAN HCP servers.
