    Failure to connect to the Internet using Bluetooth

    My Asus Memo Pad HD 7 tablet cannot establish Internet connection using a Bluetooth connection to my Nokia 301. (The phone does not support "mobile hotspot" as it does not have Wi-Fi.)

    However, my two friends' iPads can connect to the Internet via their Bluetooth connection to my Nokia 301. (My friends first disabled their iPads' own network connection to verify this.)

    I have read in several sites that a mobile phone should have Wi-Fi connectivity (which, as already mentioned, the 301 does not have) to be able to function as a "mobile hotspot", enabling internet connection. But then why does the 301 allow the iPad to connect to the Internet via the Bluetooth connection, while the same does not work with the Memo Pad - although the Memo Pad and the phone have been paired successfully?

    Welcome to the forum

    From what you say, it appears that everything has been done correctly by you as far as your setup on your phone is concerned. Given that the two iPads can connect via their connections, it would appear that the MeMo cannot connect using a Bluetooth tether.

    I believe that this situation has been confirmed by Asus - namely the 173x does not support Bluetooth tethering...

    Sorry to be the barer of disappointing news. Perhaps it's time for a change of phone handset?

    All the best

    Thank you, janner43.

    Alas, it seems that you are correct:

    "After confirming with SWPM in TW, ME173X doesn’t support bluetooth tethering.
    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your kindly understanding."

    Asus Memo Pad HD7 - Threads? Root? Roms? - Page 7 - xda-developers

    If there is no easy-ish solution around this restriction, I think I will return the MemoPad to the store.
