linpagla started following Internet Sharing between PC & Laptop over Bluetooth?
linpagla posted a topic in Networks and the InternetHi Gurus, I've a typical situation here: 1. A PC with Vista Ultimate installed and a Bluetooth dongle (Widcomm drivers) connected to a broadband internet via LAN card. 2. A laptop with Windows XP and bluetooth inbuilt. Now I wish to share the internet connection of the desktop to the laptop over bluetooth. Is it possible? I've enabled Bluetooth PAN connection between the two and I can even access file share between the two over bluetooth... Can I now take the next step to share the internet connection somehow? One more issue I face in Vista is that when I try to enable the ICS for the internet connection, I get this error "An error occurred while Internet connection sharing was being enabled. (null)". I stumbled upon the Event viewer of the system and the log entry corresponding to the ICS error says: "The ICS_IPV6 was unable to allocate bytes of memory. This may indicate that the system is low on virtual memory, or that the memory manager has encountered an internal error." Now it seems the problem is with the IPv6. My ISP surely doesn't provide anything on IPv6. So can I somehow remove it completely? I've already unchecked it from my network properties, but no use! Any solutions? Thanks in advance!
