Connect internet from android to Computer using Bluetooth Tethering

Connect internet from Computer to android using Bluetooth Tethering. No need for any PC suite or USB cable to connect and access internet in PC or laptop. Tethering is one of the feature of Android mobile, which makes it possible. Tethering means actually we can share the internet connection of mobile phone with other device using WiFi connectivity, USB connectivity or Bluetooth. Android mobile offers to Tether over USB, Tether Over Wifi or Tether over Bluetooth. So Why Tether over Bluetooth? WiFi drains battery in relatively short time, as compare to Bluetooth and USB grabs your phone to stick to a fixed position, so Bluetooth tether is an another alternative to WiFi and USB tethering. You can also check for Connecting android internet to other mobile by tethering. Below are the steps to connect internet with Bluetooth tethering, but before implement the steps, ensure that
your computer or laptop should have Bluetooth device with installed Bluetooth driver and is functioning properly.

  • Note: Bluetooth Tethering is included after Android 4.0 i.e Ice Cream Sandwich version as a in-built feature.

2.) Enable your data packet and see if your internet is working fine in your android mobile, by checking opening web pages in your phone browser.

3.) Tap to settings in your android device and select wireless and networks. Tap on to Tethering and portable hotspot i.e Setting -> Wireless and networks -> Tethering and portable hotspot. Select Bluetooth tethering check box as shown below.

    I always go through these steps, but never succeed.
    After following the last step, it shows that PC is connected to the internet, but actually internet doesn’t works.
    It works on the mobile at the same time, but on the PC when check property, the packet being received remains to 0.
    However, the packet sent keeps to change, but that alone cannot help in surfing the internet.
    Help! Help! Help!

      Hi,
      you must be using older version of android which doesn’t support bluetooth tethering, try usb or wifi tethering.
