Tethered N900 to Ubuntu 9.10 via Bluetooth

February 4, 2010 3 comments

Lars’ comment inspired me to give Bluetooth tethering a shot – again, something I have never tried before with any device. Sure enough, it is possible and thanks to Ubuntu, extremely easy. No command line required. All that is needed is:

The blueman front-end is optional but it makes the process simple. Right-click device -> Serial Ports -> Dialup Service. Once the N900 is connected, select the Broadband connection from the Network Manager. My MobileVikings connection worked flawlessly.
