I'm on windows and I have a bluetooth USB. I use Widcomm drivers and I'm able to connect to internet whit my phne (SE K800i) using the conexion of my PC.

My phonse >---BT---> PC >---ADSL---> Internet

I'm using the bluetooth conexion between my PC and my phone to connect to internet.

Is this possible in linux?

Thanks :)

You should be able to find drivers for Bluetooth on Linux, it all depends on the supplier. Just google or look for them on the CD that came with it.
I have heard that Nokia gives its software for Linux as well, not so sure so google again. Maybe you current supplier also gives software for linux.

Bytheway, refrain from calling Bluetooth BT, BT actually is more commonly called Bit Torrent.

No! You didnt understood me :(.
I can make my bluetooth work. I'm able to send/receive files to/from the phone...
In windows I'm able to use the PC as PAN and connect to internet with the mobile phone, using the conexion of my PC.
The question that I have is: Is there any way in linux to do the same thing?

Thanks ;)

Nobody knows how to do it?
I saw an option in the Bluetooth menu (In 8.04) that sais:

Audio > Started
Input devide > Started
Network > Stoped
*something else...* > Stoped

When I activate the bluetooth in my phone and click over "Input devide" ubuntu detect the phone and lets me use it like a mouse...
But when I click en Network, it doesnt happen anything... I tried to connect while "Network opcion was started" but it doesnt work...

Any suggestions?
