Bluetooth as a modem on Blackberry Storm

I have a Blackberry Storm 9530 and Thinkpad running Windows 7 Pro and Desktop  Manager v. 5.0.1.28 (the latest). I have set up a tethered network on the laptop using the Blackberry as a modem and it works well. I would like to set up untethered network using Bluetooth.  I have proper connection and linked device (when the phone rings, I can answer it on my laptop), but if I try to access the internet, I get a Code 28. Device manager has a yellow bang on Bluetooth Peripheral Device under Other Devices, and diagnostic says no drivers are installed (Code 28).  I know I have to have Desktop Manager running for tethered connection in order to load drivers, but this does not work for Bluetooth. I don't know which drivers I need to install to get rid of Code 28. Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Thank you for the links, but I have already done everything in those instructions. My Bluetooth device is already installed to my laptop and shows up as a linked device, but has a yellow bang on it. When I look to see why, it says the driver for this device is not installed. When I try to establish a connection, I get the error Code 28 (driver not installed), and if I go to Device Manager, there is a yellow bang on Peripheral Bluetooth Device, with the explanation that the driver for this device is not installed. My question is, where do I get these drivers?  The Blackberry works as a modem when connected to the laptop by USB, but Desktop Manager must be running because that is where the drivers for that are, but the having Desktop Manager running does not provide the driver for Bluetooth.  I am looking for a source of the drivers.
Thanks

If your machine is connected to internet probably you can Go to Device Manager > Scan for New hardware > Search for the appropiate driver on the internet.

Else you should call the ISP.
