Re: tethering with bluetooth

Yeah its pretty simple to do. There are a few threads about it but basically make an active sync connection via usb to your pc first.. you don't have to keep it.
Pair your pc/phone.

Now you are ready to bt tether any time..

Just turn on BT and go to ICS and choose sprint and bluetooth. Click Connect, your screen will say Device Set Up finished. On PC Connect BTPan
I then go to my network click on the bluetooth icon and choose connect (vista 64).

I also have to have my wireless disabled on my laptop if I want to use the phone for ICS.

Thats your problem.... wmwifirouter.... Wifi, not bluetooth. Either use bluetooth and ICS (internet connection sharing) like eenie suggested, or use wifi and wmwifirouter....

Re: tethering with bluetooth

btw.... Bluetooth is probably the slowest form of connection you could use. I tested usb vs bt on my Touch and was most definitely a noticeable difference. I used to have a comparison from speedtest.net in my sig, but have recently changed it.

Re: tethering with bluetooth

Very true... I use bluetooth when its more convenient rather than for speed. If I'm going to be tethered for long I always pull out the cord... If I need a quick internet fix or I'm away from my cables... bluetooth works like a charm.

Yeah, unfortunately I'm still on a Touch (no wifi), and my main computer is my Macbook. So im somewhat forced to use bt. Hopefully the Wifimrouter or whatever it is called is faster. i recently ordered a diamond.
