    I have an acer aspire happy 2 netbook and while I can use tethering via my windows bluetooth I can't get bluetooth to work on the android operating system but it works perfectly every time on windows? I have tried all the obvious i.e. making it visible, powered up both units from the mains, nothing works, just keeps saying there was a problem pairing to the device. Any ideas Guys?

    OK, I'm not sure I'm following you here.

    The netbook is running Windows, and BT is working on Windows, but you're trying to tether via BT and your phone cannot connect via BT at all to your netbook, or just cannot tether?

    Is the problem because android cannot do peer-to-peer or ad-hoc networking(?)
