I use my Nokia E51 as an internet access device with an Asus EEE
running stock, and with a Macbook Pro, in both cases connecting via
Bluetooth. It generally works OK, but now and then it causes me grief.
On the EEE such grief leads to having to setup the connection again,
while with the Macbook, I often have to reboot after the connection
dies, as the Mac can no longer find the phone (though sometimes
rebooting the phone helps).
Then I heard of Joikuspot, which turns your compatible S60 device into
a WLAN HotSpot that shares your phone's 3G internet connection to
external devices. If this works as advertised, it'd save me all the
grief associated with the Bluetooth connection, though I suppose it'd
have a negative impact on battery life.
So, have any of you used Joikuspot? Does it work as advertised?
