I wanted to connect to internet from my mobile through laptop wireless-broadband internet connection..

For that I have gone to Network Places, there i have done appropriate settings for "Wireless Network Connection" and "Bluetooth Personal Area Network Connection",, but that Bluetooth connection is still not showing connected..

I have checked the option for "Allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection", but still my Bluetooth Connection is still showing not connected..

Very few mobile devices are able to connect to an internet connection over bluetooth. What is your mobile device?

Bluetooth connections are usually used for sending files, not connecting to the internet. Check if your phone has any options for connecting to the internet via Bluetooth; if you can't find any, there's no way to access the internet via Bluetooth on your phone.

Sorry to say this, but I wouldn't put my hopes up. I've looked for a solution similar to this on my phone (Sony Ericsson w810i), but it just wasn't possible.
