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.

Skill level:


  1. 1

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

  2. 2

    Click "Control Panel."

  3. 3

    Click "Network and Sharing Center."

  4. 4

    Click "Manage Network Connections."

  5. 5

    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.
