How to connect my Windows 7 PC to the Internet via Bluetooth on my Windows Mobile 6.1 phone?

I am having trouble connecting to the Internet on my laptop running Windows 7, over Bluetooth, connected to my mobile phone running Windows Mobile 6.1.

The phone is a Samsung Omnia GT-B7610 and can access the Internet via 3G.

I can pair up the phone with Windows 7 via Bluetooth without a problem, however I still cannot access the Internet on the PC.  The process I am using is:

- Pair up phone and PC by selecting Devices and Printers > Add a device, etc. etc.  The device is successfully added.
- Network and Sharing Center > Set up a new connection or network > Connect to the Internet > Set up a new connection anyway > Dial-up.  There is supposed to be a Bluetooth option on this screen but I don't have one.

When I do this:
Devices and Printers > right-click on paired Bluetooth Device > Properties > Services tab, I can only see Active Sync Bluetooth Service as the only service available.  Is this correct?

Also, I cannot get Windows Mobile Device Center to connect/sync to the phone via Bluetooth.

Any help is much appreciated!
Hi Kiti, thanks for the reply.  I did get this working a fair while ago, however I came across a program that makes it a whole lot easier: WMWifiRouter.  I highly recommend it!
