Will I be able to share a broadband connection wth a bluetooth equipped desktop or notebook? What I just need to buy one of those usb bluetooth adaptors for the computer? What kind of browsing capabilities are their on the tg-50 via bluetooth?
Thanks to anyone who can answer these questions.

Yes. The easiest way if for have Win XP share your internet connection. XP will brdige your bluetooth connection and should be able to surf on your TG50. I have done it with my NX with a BT MS and a BT enabled PC (MSI Max2-BLR).

do you have full web surfing capabilities via bluetooth? and what program do you use?

yes. I use NetFront. NetFront has a problem with rendering large web pages (like ClieSource's main page) but works great for sites with a mobile edition option.
With regards to surfing speed, I coundn't tell the difference between a BT and a WiFi connection.

what kind of BT adaptor are you using if you are indeed using one? Do you have one to recommend or not? Thanks again

My motherboard has a built in class 1 bluetooth. It's made by MSI (Max2-BLR). I also purchased a D-link USB BT (https://www.techonweb.com/shop/products/productdetails.asp?id=279278) from techonweb.com for $41.90 so I can use the Socket Bluetooth GPS from a laptop. It should work well for connecting your NZ and surf. Here's the D-link link:

I used the D-Link DBT-120 USB Adapter when I had my BT memory stick. I never got online via bluetooth because I never really care to.

What would be the settings for windows 98 sharing a high speed connection with the NZ 90 ? So far synchronization is a breeze, but I cann't find the instructions to surf the web using my PC high speed connection.
