Anycom Bluetooth LAN Access Point and smartphone

Hello, I have just purchased an Anycom Bluetooth-Lan Access Point

AP-2002. I am trying to access my wifi lan over Bluetooth from my

Orange Bt Windows Mobile Smartphone (SPV E-200) so that I can share

internet access, files, activesync, use phone as a modem all from my

bedroom because I am disabled and have to spend a great deal of time in

bed. My Bluetooth PC doesn't have the range to reach my bedroom so

thought that I would set up an access point in the bedroom itself using

my wireless network which is much stronger in the bedroom.

Just to be sure I have also put in the bedroom a wireless access point

(an Apple Airport Express) which also has an ethernet input into it,

into which I have placed the ethernet cable from the Bluetooth LAN

access point.

Can you guys tell me if this is what this kind of product can do? I

tried the dlink version of this product but couldnt even change the

alpha password to numeric because Smartphones only allow numerical

input for passwords. At least with this one I have got further and been

able to change the password.

My phone sees and has bonded with the access point with no problems.

However How Do I Actually Use the Access Point? What I mean is what

program do I go into on my Smartphone in order to make use of the

Bluetooth to LAN access? I told you I'm pretty basic and a beginner at

all this.

My other questions are about which actual settings do I need to alter

bearing in mind what I want to do with my phone ie share internet

access, share files, activesync, use phone as a modem? What settings

for the following mentioned in the Anycom configuration web.:

  1. Access Point Settings (will it still work even though the access

point factory IP address is in a different range from my router ie compared to,

  1. LAN Access via PPP (LAP),

  2. LAN Access via PAN (NAP) (DHCP is what I usually use but the

default is fixed?)?

  1. PPP Authorization under security (is this my ISP user ID and


I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to e-mail and phone Anycom

themselves for support but have got nowhere hence I'm writing to this

group in the hope that some of you gadget gurus out there might be able

to help.

Thanks again.
