Hi there, i have a bluetooth dongle for my pc and also a bluetooth pcmcia card for my laptop, is it possible for the laptop to connect on to the pc's dial up connection ? thanks.

Yes, in theory.

However you will need a large amount of patience.

I have found that anything to do with bluetooth set up tends to be far from simple.

If you check under Bluetooth services you should find options for dial-up networking, network access, file transfer and serial connection.

One of these should be capable of doing what you want.

I`ve set up several laptops, pda`s and mobile phones but getting them talking to each other correctly would try the patience of a saint!

Good luck! :-)
