Hi all.
I want to connect to the internet on my laptop using my phone's 3G internet 
connection. Usually I use a program called Joikuspot to accomplish this via 
WiFi, however I would like to give Bluetooth a try, as it is always running on 
both devices, and I can then turn WiFi off on the phone and laptop to conserve 
battery power. So, I went into PC Suite, and chose the 'Connect To The 
Internet' option, however it kept going on about cable drivers, and no modems 
were installed. There didn't seem to be any options for doing this via 
Bluetooth. Do I need to use PC Suite for this, or is this a feature that needs 
to be configured from within my Bluetooth stack software?
