Does bluetooth Autodetect like WiFi?


N

no.top.post

My HP-netbook running Win7, shows when any other WiFi
connection is accessible nearby. This allows me to confirm
that it's working.

How would I confirm that the Bluetooth facility is working?
If I found somebody with a bluetooth capable mobile, should
my netbook automatically be able to detect it?

==TIA

The first two links, are for you to decide whether you want
to use Bluetooth at all. Or some other facility like Wifi.

You will have to click on Blue tooth "search" to
find other blue teeth. It is not really auto like wifi.
It is fun to do at airports.

Judging by the time of your post, I'm guessing you've been sipping
your Belgian beer. ;-)
If I had been just now, it would be all over my keyboard :)

Lately we've been trying Blue Moon, a "Belgian Style" wheat ale, brewed
in Golden, Colorado. We're both not yet sure we like it, but we also
agree that it's not like the lambic beer that we tried (which we ended
up not liking very much).

This way off-topic, so I'll just make one very brief statement, and
then bow out of this.

I don't know Blue Moon, and if I see any I'll try it, but I do know
that I hate lambic bears.

What about grizzly beers?

OK, I would have bowed out too, but I had to tease you about the typo
:)

*Now* I'll go away...

LOL! Alas, I'm very susceptible to making typos. I see that I also
left out the word "is" right after the first "This" in the first
sentence. Sigh.
