It works on the 6600 but the procedure is somwhat difficult.Search the 6600 forum,the procedure might work for the 7610 also.

It should be the same as for the 6600.

dats a long forum abt 6600!
So what should i do?Read it for you? :rolleyes: Like i said,the procedure is somewhat difficult.Reading those posts will only help you.You can read other peoples success stories and mistakes and learn from it.

also ghostdog, can more than one phone connect 2 a pc n share da broadband connection and does da speed depend on how close u r 2 da pc? will it work with every bluetooth port n can it work 2 da range of da bluetooth port like 100m?

Only one device can connect at a time.The speed does depend on the range.Your PC bluetooth adapter might have a range of 100M but the one on your phone has a range of 10-13M so the max range will be 10-13M.

I tried to connect 7610 like a 6600 and never get modem connexion. PC's virtuel modem does not trace any connection try in log. I guess that gnubox commDBregistry hack doesn't work for the 7610 comm database. The 7610' bluettoth serial port is never reached.

Does anyone known how to extract 7610 commDB file? Does anyone can compare it with 6600 one?

Trying to connect... to the real world. :cool:

Actually, there is unfortunatelly no "Bluetooth Serial Port" service on 7610. Do you all confirm this ? I guess, if "Bluetooth Dial-up networking" is however available, "Bluetooth Serial Port" is just hidden. So, we really have to discover the real commDB we can administrate to a 7610.

If someone can send me the symbian proggy that can extract commDB file.

Thanks

well im not shure if this can help you .. but if you take a look at the pcprog "oxygen phone manager for symbian phones" there is a client wich seems to allow me to create a bluetooth serial connection. the prog is available for free in trial version which delivers the same client (in a sub dir ) as in the full version.
The client has to be active while serial con. is established. but you can run other tasks as well by pressing the button on the upper right corner of the phone.

so if you succeed with this i would be very greatful if you could tell me what else to do to user pcs internet con.
thx

Woauhouh, Bluetooth is a specific world. Believe me.
So, i just get open a serial com port on 7610 (like 6600 or 7610 is open yet i guess) with a little proggy from S60 SDK. Now, we have to test if gnubox referenced the open serial port as BTCOMM:0 as it is envisaged . I believe i can see that tonight. And after, i guess internet PC connection will work. See you soon.

How far have people got with this? I have got as far as setting everything up but the 7610 simply tries to dial the number i have set in the dial-up number field. Anyone got any further?

I have got my 7610 to connect to the Network Access on my computer and can also connect the Bluetooth Serial Port on my 7610 to my computer by using the RemoteS60 programme. However, I haven't figured out how to get communication going between the two devices yet. I can see data is being sent from my phone, but none is received, and there is data being received on my computer, but none is sent! I've given up on this for a while now as I don't think it's possible to do.

well .. im not shure if i understood you .. but i cannot get a working connection between my 7610 and my pc .. probably because there is no serial port offered by the 7610 .. so how can i open one ?

I just downloaded this software from here: http://www.download.com/Remote-S60/3000-2063-10253350.html

and then installed the SIS file on my phone, and the EXE file on my computer. I ran the software first on my computer, and then ran it on my phone and a message showed up saying my 7610 was connected to the Bluetooth Serial Port on my computer.

hhmm and the prog works ( shows you the interface of the 7610 ?)
an what sort of connection are you using ? bluetooth ? and what sort of ? direkt or via com -port ?

ah ok i got it working right now .. but how can i surf in the internet now ?
what properties do i have to set in my browser ?

Thats as far as I've got. I can get a connection, but there is no data transfer both ways on the devices. I'm hoping that someone who knows more can use what i've done to then get the 7610 working to access the internet via a bluetooth connection.

Wouldnt it be the same as surfing the net on any S60 phone. Once you have established the connection, you just need to create a new Access point and make your PC as the default AP. Just leave all settings default.

Try googling for Bluetooth Internet sharing or something and i'm sure you'll find results.

I've already tried the usual Googling for Bluetooth Internet sharing/connection/setup, but I cannot find anything for the 7610. I have found various tutorials and posts about the 6600 and setting it up, which i have tried with my 7610, but I cannot get it to work.

Had windows xp sp1. Didnt have any of the above problems. Had problem with setting up phone on a com port though. Tried using bemused wouldnt work. Recently installed xp sp2 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en and unistalled the original bluetooth drivers. Used drivers that came with windows and was able to set up a com port using windows bluetooth interface. Anyway bemused works now. theres an option which says join personal network , wonder if this might help enable the sharing of internet connection. Hellpppp..

Does WinXP SP2 Bluetooth support make any difference now that it has been released?

Or is it just the it is not possible with the 7610?

I use the Windows XP SP2 Bluetooth drivers (with a Belkin USB Bluetooth dongle, which own - Widcomm based - drivers I deinstalled before installing SP2) & PC Suite 6.2 with a 7610. Quite possible, in other words.

Can anyone explain to me "what's the point?"

If you have broadband and a monitor ridiculously larger than the 7610 screen, why go through so much bother just to be able to sit in another room and strain your eye's?

Hold on, halfway typing I thought of this.

You only have one PC in your house, so surfing for p0rn isn't possible with your mum/girlfriend in the house/same room. So you can get p0rn on your phone while your locked in bathroom cracking one off.

Actually someone see if this is possible!!

Whats the point of polluting this thread if you don't understand the reason for it!!!?
Obviously its not just for casual surfing, but to download emails to the phone, or more importantly use Avant-go on your phone(downloads the days news so that you can read the daily papers on the train ) .
This feature is accessible on every pocket pc, and every Nokia phone up til the 7610...Thats why its quite a concern to everybody else that we find a way of getting the internet through to the 7610....

An other phorum has a more active thread on it, but still no answer...

Calm down!!!

I was asking what the point of this was because I didn't understand. I have never used a mobile phone other than to make and receive calls before I got my 7610 and wanted to know more on this subject. Ok if you can't see past a little bit of pi55taking that’s fine, but why be so serious. Spamming? Hardly! I was having a f**king joke. Be it funny or unfunny, loosen up you only live once.

In future I will remember to interact with my fellow symbian users in a polite, concise and characterless way so not to offend those who's only colour in life is grey.

I've gone through the instructions repeatedly and they just don't work for the 7610. It seems as though the author wrote it for the 6600 and assumed it would work for the 7610 but as far as I can tell no one has had any success using this method on all the internet searches I've done.

Even if the phone didn't support browsing in this style it would be certainly be possible to write a client server application to pass down pages from an app running on a pc - the only problem with this method is you would have to develop a browser ... it's a bit of a pandoras box. The other way would be to write the phone equivalent of an NDIS Driver so all connections must go through this driver which requests the info from the pc via bluetooth instead of the usual route - I'm not sure if this is actually possible though on a symbian phone and there must surely be an easier method. Writing a client server app for email via bluetooth would be far easier than for web as long as it was text only. I've posted a request to Nokia although they haven't responded as yet.

Simon

Take a look at this thread: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29000. AFAIK, and I am new to s60 so I might be wrong, however I don't this will work because Nokia changed the way the bluetooth serial port is implemented on the 7610.

Here is a pretty detailed guide on how to do it and it states that it DOES work with 7610:

http://www.deloreanmclaren.com/tutorial.html

Looks pretty promising I would do it but I don't have a bluetooth dongle... if soumeone can confirm that this works I'll be getting one for sure :)

26-10-2004, 01:52 PM
hey thanx! i've lent my dongle to a friend so i'll be trying this as soon as i get it back which i'l make sure i do pretty soon! ;)

bobsickal
26-10-2004, 02:14 PM
No Prob.

I've asked my bro if he'd "borrow" a dongle from his work.. I'm sure they have thousands they won't miss one ;)

Anyway I'll be trying that 2night *hopefully* so I'll post back comments on how it went.

I have tried several times and in several ways with the help of several tutorials to connect from the 6670 (its no mine, I have borrow it, i would never bought a nokia mobile phone;), through bluetooth to the internet on my computer LAN, I am not asking now about the tutorial or howto, but If anyone has ever succeeded with this connection. I have tried the tutorials for 6600 but it does not work.
