Default Bold bluetooth tethering is going crazy

Please Login to Remove!

Since I read the Bold Mac tethering thread on this forum I have been tethering like a charm. Once I tried the windows usb connection, it also worked flawlessly and even faster. Still my laptop is a Mac, but for some weird reason since I tried windows tethering my osx bb bluetooth login is very unstable. 70% of my logins get rejected arguing a ppp negotiation error. What could possibly cause this? I mean if my password and user settings were wrong I would get 100% errors.

Has anybody gone through this??

In case you wonder; i still got a 100% success rate on windows usb.

Well, I think I solved it after trying almost everything, I downgraded to .167 from .247.

Bluetooth Tethering now is stable again!
