Internet connection sharing between Windows® XP systems via Bluetooth®
What is the need to share Internet connection between Windows XP systems via Bluetooth?
Internet is a public network that helps in transferring files and folders from one computer to another. Internet connection sharing enables you to use the Internet in other computers that are running on Windows XP. Only by configuring the connection, networking could be achieved. You might be having only common Internet connection, which you need to share using any wired or wireless connection techniques to make it accessible in various computers. For wireless networks, you might use the Wi-Fi facility or Bluetooth. In the Bluetooth Internet connection sharing, you need to have computers enabled with Bluetooth technology. You need to configure the computers to share the Internet. If you are having a router with Bluetooth technology, then you will be able to achieve Internet connection sharing very easily.
The following are the tips to share Internet connection between Windows XP-based systems via Bluetooth:
- Configure options
- Connect from router

After that, open 'Network Options'. Then right-click on the options and then select 'Properties'. You need to check 'Enable Internet Connection Sharing' option.
