[Q] Bluetooth Tethering + Hisense Sero Pro Question
Having no wifi here at the present moment (and honestly not wanting it), I have a bluetooth USB stick for my XP computer. My hope was to tether my Hisense Sero Pro 7 to it and surf the internet in this manner. I was able to pair the devices successfully, but not able to find a way to get the Sero Pro on the internet from this connection. Also, I noted that, even if I was just going to transfer files, I was not having luck just tapping the Bluetooth button in the notification tray and pulling anything down. I only get the Quick Settings menu. My questions are:
Can I bluetooth tether and use my desktop's hardwired internet connection access on the Sero Pro 7? If so, what are the steps after they are paired?
What am I doing wrong, so that I cannot get the bluetooth screen to drop down so that I can exchange files? It is just a tiny icon.
BTW... I also noted that the software button I am supposed to slide to turn bluetooth on and off is very hard to get to work. Anyone else have this issue. So far, I am unimpressed and frustrated. I have 7 more days to take it back to Walmart, and am truly considering it.
I searched for answers to this, but did not find anything.
Well, one more thing... Can software such as Virtual Access Point create an infrastructure access point on my computer (with a wifi stick)? I read here that an ad hoc wifi connection will not work with androids.
Also, thanks for all of the wonderful posts I have read here. I decided to go with the Sero Pro 7, based mostly on what I have been reading in this forum. Please count me in as mentioning that this tablet needs its own forum.
Thanks in advance!
