Tethering iPhone to Win7 using Bluetooth
I know that it's a fairly common question but I have just not found a way to make it work.
I want to use my iPhone as a modem but do so wirelessly through Bluetooth.
After downloading the latest Centrino drivers for my laptop's Bluetooth adapter, I successfully paired my iPhone and my laptop. The problem is that I can only share music files. For some reason, I can't share Internet access over Bluetooth. It's not coming up as an option in the "Devices" section once both devices are connected.
Am I doing anything wrong or do I need to create a network from within Windows 7? I tried setting up the drivers using Microsoft's internal database of drivers but it couldn't find any drivers for my Bluetooth adapter. As a result, the two wouldn't even pair up. Downloading the Intel drivers fixed that problem. But now, I find myself not being able to tether without USB.
