I also have an Apple iPad.
The iPad has a SIM-card (cellular 3G/4G connection), but the carrier's limits on the data usage are not very loyal. So I would like my iPad to use my computer's wired Internet while I'm at home.
The computer is a desktop machine with the Asus P8P67 motherboard. It has a built-in Bluetooth (model Atheros AR3011), but it doesn't have a Wi-Fi.
Can I turn the computer's Bluetooth into an Internet server for my iPad?
I can only use the standard Windows PAN (Bluetooth Personal Area Network / Access Point) only for the opposite task: Get the iPad's cellular Internet onto the computer (by turning the "Modem" feature of the iPad on).
What I need it is the opposite: get the Internet FROM the computer ONTO the iPad.
I now the iPad can get the Internet from the iPhone via Bluetooth. I have read on some forums that it is also possible with Apple MacBook computers. But I have a regular Windows computer.
I know that I can purchase and install a Wi-Fi router for my wired Internet but I'm curious if it is possible to use the Bluetooth as a server like a Bluetooth on a iPhone or a MacBook can act.
