How to Make a WiFi Adapter Work With Bluetooth

Updated February 21, 2017

Making a Wi-Fi adaptor and a Bluetooth adaptor work together and communicate with one another involves bridging the two connections. Creating a network bridge can allow you to share your wireless Internet connection over a Bluetooth connection, enabling devices that are Bluetooth compatible but not Wi-Fi compatible to access the Web.

Click one time on the "Windows Logo" button in the lower left corner of your desktop.

Click "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Sharing Center."

Click "Manage Network Connections."

Highlight the icon that represents your computer's Bluetooth adaptor and the icon that represents you computer's Wi-Fi adaptor using your mouse cursor. Right-click on either of these two highlighted icons and click "Bridge Connections" to allow your Wi-Fi adaptor to work with your Bluetooth adaptor.
