Possible to Share a internet connection over bluetooth?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Kardon Coupé, Feb 26, 2005.

  1. Hello, I've got a little setup, 3 pc's to one router using cables, and I
    have a bluetooth connection from my main pc to transfer stuff from my mobile
    phone to the pc. So here is my question, I have just aquired a laptop, and
    it is all setup to connect to the last cable connection on my router, but
    what when I wanna use my laptop upstairs, in bed for example. If I buy a
    wireless PCI card for my pc (WinXP) or the machine that the main router is
    connected to (Win98). Will the machine send out internet from the card? will
    I have to go down the Bridging options? or could i just buy a bluetooth
    dongle for the laptop, and activate the networking option on the bluetooth
    on my main machine (MSI BToes Bluetooth USB 1.1 Adapter) ? or could I buy a
    bluetooth PCMCIA card (if they exsist) and have the same thing...

    Sorry for all the questions, but I wanna get it right b4 I start spending

    You best solution would be buying an Access Point and plug it to the Router.

    just use a bluetooth USB device on the laptop.
    or , as you say,
    use the XP machine & a NIC card just enable ICS either way.
