7. Wireless > 73. Connect to the Internet with a Bluetooth Phone

Connect to the Internet with a Bluetooth Phone

Don’t worry about normal phone dial-in connections, hotspots, or WiFi. No matter where you are, the Internet is with you, as long as you have a Bluetooth-enabled phone.

Lots of phones these days include Bluetooth connections, and if you have one, Internet access for your laptop is only a phone call away. All you’ll need to do is fire up your laptop and phone, connect them to one another, and make the Internet connection. To do this, you’ll of course need a laptop with Bluetooth capabilities as well.

Tip

If your laptop doesn’t have Bluetooth capability, it’s easy to add. You just need a USB Bluetooth adapter. Companies including D-Link, Keyspan, Belkin, and many others sell them, often for around $30. Just plug the little device into your USB port, follow installation instructions, and you’ll be set.
