The following is a couple of frequently asked questions and issues that you may have. Hopefully the following will help solve your particular problem.

Subject: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

I can connect to a wireless network, however I can not browse the internet or check my mail, whats wrong?

MEdia Net is set up to connect through a proxy, because of this when you activate Wi-Fi it tries to use the MEdia Net connection. To stop this go to Start, Settings, Connections, Connections and under MEdia Net tap "set up my proxy server" and de-check "This network uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet". You should now be able to use Wi-Fi correctly.

The 8125 does support OBEX, in the past the Microsoft Bluetooth stack was much more stable in this aspect, however after trying the latest Widcomm Bluetooth Stack, I am happy to say that they work great and they support so many more Bluetooth Profiles than the MS ones.
