“It has bluetooth built in but I can’t get connected to the Internet”

Bluetooth have noting to do with connecting to the Internet

You have to check that the Lan & Wireless card is set up is correct

Most laptop computer these days comes with a build in wireless card; some required you to

switch on the “Wireless Radio Antenna” via a small slide switch on the laptop

Or using the FN (Function) key you have to hold down the FN key and press the key with a

small antenna icon to turn on the “Wireless Card Antenna”

You now need to check that the Lan & Wireless card is “Enable”

In XP you have to check the following

Start – Setting - Control Panel - Select- Internet Options - Connection Tab

In the “Connection” screen, there are three selections:

“Never dial a connection”,

“Dial whenever a network connection is not present”

“Always dial my default connection”.

If you can make a selection, select “Never dial a connection”.

If you cannot make a selection, select “LAN Settings”

Un-Tick “Automatically detect settings”,

Click “OK”. Then click “OK” again in the “Internet Options” page.
