How to connect a desktop computer (Windows XP) to the Internet, available on a mobile phone (Android: HTC Desire), via Bluetooth?Asked by fazeli
Given: HTC Desire mobile phone operating under the control of the “raw” (unpatched, non-rooted) Android 2.1 operating system. It has a mobile Internet (Tele2 EDGE).
It is necessary: to connect a desktop computer running Windows XP to a mobile phone (and this means also to the Internet is the main thing). Replace the operating system, please do not offer. The computer is equipped with a Bluetooth key fob, via Bluetooth and it needs to be connected. (USB-cord connection is a trivial task, but please do not reduce it. We are talking about switching to wireless technology with the freedom of relative positioning of devices.)
Known solutions: PdaNet (from some also imposed to read and write SMS, ostensibly to send and receive them from a large computer), EasyTether (full version - 10 bucks).
There are other ways?
The result is a ready connection. He chopped up the phone by BT, clicked to connect - the connection went.
For Desire, the same official update was released to 2.2 Froyo, where there is a standard Wifi hotspot function.
On my win7 - I stuck the adapter, the drivers were installed, the tray now has the icon of the broom, which opens the list with my phones. A double click on any one establishes an edge-connection with an operator (at which point I set up connections, I don’t remember).
