Zire 72, PC, and Bluetooth

by fordse2002 / July 22, 2005 4:35 PM PDT

I just purchased a Linksys USBBT100 Bluetooth adapter. I am trying to use it to surf the internet on my Palm Zire 72 via my Windows XP Home PC.

It hotsynced just fine via BT almost immediately; but, when trying to connect to the internet I get the following error message:

Error: PPP Timeout (0x1231)

I've set up a network to share internet connections, and spent hours surfing the net for help, even trying Mocha's PPP software (Mocha W32 PPP); all to no avail.

Can anyone please help me??

Thanks!

If I were you, I'd return it all asap and find a PDA with Wifi.

Too bad they don't ship the Zire 72 and other models with that.

I still prefer the Wifi connection PDA over my Palm BT units. I have the iPaq rx3115 which was under 260 bucks and others.
