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
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

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

point factory IP address is in a different range from my router ie172.16.220.51 compared to 192.168.0.1?),
- LAN Access via PPP (LAP),
- LAN Access via PAN (NAP) (DHCP is what I usually use but the
default is fixed?)?
- 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
