Problems setting up bluetooth network access using two MSI bluetooth USB dongles.

I'm running Win98SE on a desktop machine connec nobr> a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,172075);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(172075);">ted to /a> /nobr> internet via cable modem, and WinXP on a laptop (parent's work supplied this). I've got 2 dongles plugged into the machines, and I'm able to transfer files between them so presumably the connection itself is working.

However the problem is trying to open a "network connection" between the two - it just won't let me do it. I've tried finding appropriate areas to "share internet connection", with limited success, so not sure if that's where the problem lies.

Any suggestions would be most welcome

Thanks
Scott
