This occurs because Internet Connection Sharing was enabled when Bluetooth was
installed (this is a Microsoft Windows behavior and is considered proper operation).
To resolve the "problem":
1. Disable Sharing for the Ethernet dongle:
a) Windows Control Panel > Network and Dial-up Connections
b) Right-click "Local Area Connection," select Properties, and then select the
Sharing tab.
c) Clear (uncheck) the box for "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this
connection" and click OK.
2. Re-enable Sharing for the Ethernet dongle; repeat Step 1.c.), and select (check) the
sharing box.
If offered an option to select an dongle, select "Bluetooth network dongle." (This option
will not appear unless more than one dongle is available.)
If asked to reboot the computer, do so.

If the client is hardwired to the LAN, unplug the hardwired connection to ensure that the
test checks the wireless connection rather than the hardwired connection.
If the server has access to the Internet, open a browser on the client and connect to the
World Wide Web.
You may also Ping the server from the DOS prompt.

The "Unknown Port" error message usually means an attempt was made to connect a port
that was in use.
Additional Bluetooth Serial Ports can be added if they are required.

Windows 98 cannot convert audio files with the extension m3u (e.g.,
the Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) audio format used by Bluetooth headsets; this is a
limitation of Windows 98.
Other versions of Windows (2000, ME and XP) can translate m3u audio files into the PCM
format.
Possible solutions are:
Upgrade to a newer version of Windows
Use an m3u-to-mp3 conversion utility to convert the file(s) into a format that is
supported by Windows 98. (Conversion utilities are available as freeware or
shareware on the Internet.)
