I have a desktop PC with fast cable internet. I would like to share the internet to my Symbian S60 v7.0 series Nokia 6600 smartphone via bluetooth. I have a Cellink Bluetooth USB Adapter BTA-3100 too. The connection (file transfer, sync) works between the phone and the PC.

How is it possible to use the PC's net on the phone?

I've tried this solution, but it dosen't worked:

Thank you in advance.

    I don;t think it is possible.

    Nokia added the internet feature so you would connect through a phone company. That's why you get a phone cheaper with a subscription. If you could use the internet through bluetooth that'd go against that wouldn't it?

    Not sure bout that though... but it seems logical to me. [/spock]

    Through a phone company?? GRPS or dial-up? I don't want it. I would like to use my PC's internet.

    I have been trying to do this for a while. I found this question through google =). I have the following instructions to connect a N-Gage to the internet...

    1. install a bluetooth dongle and all its drivers
    2. pair computer with phone, authorize the connection and remember your computer's name that you use to pair the phone with.
    3. install pc suite

    in your phone

    4. go to settings->connection->access points
    5. options->new access point->use default settings

    connection name: (whatever you want ex. bluetooth dsl)
    data bearer: GPRS
    Access point name: your computer's name, the same name that shows up when you pair the bluetooth with the phone.
    user name: none
    prompt password: no
    password: none (leave alone)
    authentication: secure
    gateway IP add:

    6. now go back and you should see the access point you just set up.
    7. go back to connection settings->GPRS

    GPRS connection : When needed
    Access point: your computer's name, the same name that shows up when you pair the bluetooth with the phone.

    8. install Opera or NetFront (internet browsers)
    9. turn on bluetooth and connect your phone with PC suite
    10. if you've done all of these step properly you can now use the internet on your phone via bluetooth connection.

    The only thing I cant find is the gateway IP, even in advanced access point options. I am looking for a solution and I'll post it here soon =]
