I have a Palm Tungsten/E2 handheld and would like to connect it to my Dell Inspiron notebook computer via a wireless connection (I have no router, only the HP internal WI-FI connection.) in order to transfer my Outlook data to the Tungsten, but the Tungsten is asking for the administrator LAN passkey and I don't know how to find this? Can anyone tell me how I can find where this passkey is? Thanks in advance for any and all help with this.

The Tungsten/E2 has bluetooth (unless you have the optional Wifi adapter), so your Dell Inspiron needs to have bluetooth. The passkey would be shown in the bluetooth configuration settings you set up on the laptop.

Frank4d, tonight I followed the link to "Display Operations and Settings for Your Bluetooth Device" but when I double-clicked on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray, the green bar slowly progress from left to right but the devices never did appear. Also, I fired-up my Tunsgten/E2 and tried to discover nearby Bluetooth devices but after 10 or 15 minutes, the Palm never did discover my Dell computer. I am thinking that something is wrong with the Bluetooth software on my computer? What do you think? Thanks again for any help you can give me with this issue.

If I remember correctly you need to make a device broadcast itself before it can be discovered.
You should go into your phones bluetooth settings, make it discoverable and then click the bluetooth icon on your computer.

adam3088, thanks for the reply. When I attempt to connect my Palm Tungsten/E2 to my computer 1. I am prompted to get the LAN passkey from my network administrator and 2. I get a screen that indicates that, "Unable to connect to DELLNOTEBOOK." Also, when I double-click on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray, the "Control Panel" "Hardware and Sound" "Devices and Printers" Bluetooth Devices" appears and a green progress bar begin to go across the screen from left to right which takes several minutes to make the trip, but no devices appear whereas before icons for my Bluetooth headset and Tungsten/E2 would show up. I am thinking that some files are corrupted.

I still don't know how to find my LAN passkey. (Also I can't seem to open "Devices and Printers" but this is another thread, and I plan to open another thread with this problem. However, I am wondering if this problem and not being able to find the LAN passkey are related. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions regarding not knowing where to find the LAN passkey issue.
