<I'm a bit new at wireless technologies. I apologize if I use some terms improperly.>

I have two computers: a desktop connected to the internet via DSL that has a bluetooth dongle, and a laptop with bluetooth built-in. They both have Ubuntu 8.04 and WindowsXP.

I've been able to set-up a Bluetooth PAN using Windows on both machines. My desktop serves as the Network Access Point, and shares its DSL connection with my laptop via Bluetooth.


1) When my laptop is running Ubuntu, how do I connect to my Windows desktop Network Access Point?
2) How can I set-up my desktop as a Network Access Point using Ubuntu?
