Using Bluetooth wireless devices (select models only)

A Bluetooth device provides short-range wireless communications that replace the physical cable
connections that traditionally link electronic devices, such as the following:

Computers (desktop, notebook, PDA)

Phones (cellular, cordless, smart phone)

Imaging devices (printer, camera)

Audio devices (headset, speakers)

Bluetooth devices provide peer-to-peer capability that allows you to set up a personal area network
(PAN) of Bluetooth devices. For information on configuring and using Bluetooth devices, refer to the
Bluetooth software Help.

Bluetooth and Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)

HP does not recommend setting up one computer with Bluetooth as a host and using it as a gateway
through which other computers may connect to the Internet. When two or more computers are
connected using Bluetooth, and Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is enabled on one of the
computers, the other computers may not be able to connect to the Internet using the Bluetooth
network.

The strength of Bluetooth is in synchronizing information transfers between your computer and
wireless devices including cellular phones, printers, cameras, and PDAs. The inability to consistently
connect two or more computers to share the Internet through Bluetooth is a limitation of Bluetooth
and the Windows operating system.
