p900 & bluetooth access points

I've successfully managed to access the internet using Opera via a Bluetooth dongle in a PC whilst the Sony software was running (and connected) however I've had no such luck with my networked Bluetooth access point.
Other PDAs such as iPAQ, Pocket PC & Palm all work fine.

The phone can see & connect to the access point & 'seems' paired correctly
however I believe the problem is that Opera can't or doesn't see the connection.

There also is no option under Internet Accounts for a Bluetooth Account.

Aside from 'allow to connect without confirmation' there doesn't seem to be any other options or services for other bluetooth devices.

Via the PC I can see what Bluetooth services & options the phone has, but unlike most PDAs this isn't possible via the phone itself (very strange).

The lack of Bluetooth options & configurations on a phone that comes from the actual inventor of Bluetooth is astounding.

Has anyone managed to connect to a Bluetooth access point (not PC & dongle)?

Hi, I believe Opera can use the PC for internet connection because of the mRouter software running on the PC. So this is the reason the access point does not work the same. The phone should have the LAN profile to be able to use the access point for network access (this is what I assume). And since the phone does not have that profile, this would not work.
