4 posts in this topic

I have a Mac mini and a Hackintosh with Leopard and working bluetooth. I want to configure Internet sharing via Bluetooth on my Mac mini and access it via the Hackintosh.


How do I configure Internet sharing via Bluetooth and access it on the hackintosh ?

I am not sure if it is possible, And if it is, You would get 20<Kb Speeds.

20KBs are about the maximum speed over bluetooth.

Yes it is possible. I succeeded with Bluetooth Internet sharing between my MacBook running snow leopard and my acer aspire one a150 hackintosh running the ideneb v6 with no wifi card yet. I had to try a bunch of things but i did get it working. I had to set both computers to "share Internet with other Bluetooth devices". Pair the computers via bluetooth. From the Mac go to the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar and select the hackintosh and select "connect to network". On the hackintosh go to system pref, network, and select the Bluetooth pan. On the right select "configure using DHCP". In the "DNS Server" window enter the IP address of the computer that's sharing it's Internet connection (Mac) Apply, close, launch browser, watch slow Internet. Ok until I buy a replacement wifi card. I'm no expert and made my first hackintosh this week! Lots of fun. Hope this helps.
