    Question Internet sharing via Bluetooth

    I have a Mac mini with direct Internet connection via Ethernet and want to share the internet using Bluetooth. I have a Acer hackintosh with working bluetooth and want to access internet using Bluetooth.

    How do I configure it and connect to it ?

    If you don't mind my asking, why not just buy a cheap router?

    Huuuuh. I can remember some scripts that let Smartphones from Nokia use a bluetooth connection to a Mac and browse the Internet with Internet Sharing on, but this was at Mac OS x 10.2 or so and involved lots of scripts, ppp connections on the mobile device and so on.

    I doubt you'll make it to use the szenario you want. Why dont you buy a cheap WiFi adapter for the PC, setup an ad-hoc network on the Mac that has Internet access (via cable) - ro, much easier as Wikinerd suggests buy a cheap router??

    EDIT: I just read your Hackint0sh has no wifi, so go for a router and use cable

    I already have a $200 Belkin N1 vision router and a Belkin G+ router. But my Hackintosh's WiFi card is not supported and I don't want to replace it and void my warranty. The Bluetooth works and I had also seen an option saying "Use other devices to use this computer's internet connection" in Bluetooth preferences...

    Well, you really cannot make bluetooth work with internet sharing... Internet over bluetooth is still in it's infancy, and people are still experimenting with it. It seems that you will have to stick to fixing a driver for that wifi card.
