I'm on an extremely strict wireless network, which locks down one machine to one account. [Hotel wifi] Is there a way that I can share the Wifi connection with my android tablet via bluetooth?

Windows and Linux solutions are prefered.

The machine connecting to WIFI will be the Laptop/[Windows|Linux] machine.

On Windows, you want ICS or Internet Connection Sharing. Pair the devices (your tablet and your Windows/Linux machine) first than activate ICS.

For Linux, there's several different ways to do this. You'd basically be activating routing on Linux. You could do this via ipforward or a set application. But if you're asking this question, I'd recommend you stick with Windows and ICS.
