    Angry Sharing a wired connection via Bluetooth

    Hi guys!

    I've just upgraded my Desktop to the amazing Ubuntu 9.10, as well as my netbook. My gaming machine, a wonderful HP Pavilion Entertainment Laptop, dv6700, remains under XP.

    With the advent of the Sims 3, I've decided to connect my vulnerable machine to the Windows Killamanator known as teh internets. Problem is, I don't won't to spend extra on a wireless plan. My PCs have been connected via bluetooth, and, as in Windows you can share an internet connection via Bluetooth, I decided that I would attempt at doing a cross-OS bluetooth network share.

    Whoops. I just realized I know nothing about Bluetooth, or Internet Connections. So I decided to ask the tremendous Ubuntu community for help on this pressing issue.

    Thanks at large,

    I searched a lot, Made 3 separate posts in this forum about it, tried tones of commands and scripts but none of these worked for me.
    It seems that no one knows how to share internet trough blue-tooth in ubuntu!
    There are tones of solutions in forum pages everywhere and a lot of people commenting that they're connected to internet successfully and they are so happy of this! But I never seen in my life, that a man is working with internet trough blue-tooth and in Linux!
    Continue searching and whenever you made it worked please let us know how.
    Thanks.
