Most PC computers include support for Bluetooth technology. This allows you to connect your computer to nearby devices, using wireless signals. Some people use Bluetooth devices, like smartphones, to create a network connection for their desktop or laptop. If you need to share that Bluetooth connection with others, you can enable Internet Connection Sharing through the Windows settings, and make your device act like a router.
