OK, using maemo-pan it works! This is great, I owe you Anidel! Now I
can place calls from my N810 using skype connected through my mobile

Here's how to get it working:

1. Download and install maemo-pan from here:
https://garage.maemo.org/projects/maemo-pan. The install is farily
straight forward, I didn't come across any dependency issues and the
package is small. maemo-pan is only for OS2008 though.
2. Pair up your phone with your N810 or N800, but don't bother about
the connection wizard that follows.
3. After the install you have a new connection named Bluetooth-PAN.
Select it and connect to the internet. You may have to allow the
connection in your phone and you may have to start network sharing on
your phone.

Here are some more detailed instructions:
