The Bluetooth® technology can be used to set up temporary networks in a short area. The network can be easily set up as well as broken down as and when needed.
The following points explain how to turn the Bluetooth® on and switch it off on the HP EliteBook 8740w:
- Use the software to turn on Bluetooth®
- Secure the network
- Turn off Bluetooth®
Use the software to turn on Bluetooth®
Since the Bluetooth® hardware comes integrated with the HP EliteBook 8740w, the system does not need the support of an external piece of hardware to set up the network. After the software has been installed on the system, run the software from the computer to turn on the device, to make it visible so that other devices in the area can detect it. The Bluetooth® device must be secured so that the system is not exposed to devices that can attack it. If the system software is not user friendly you can acquire the software via the Internet to operate the Bluetooth® device.
Secure the network
The Bluetooth® network that is set up must be a secure one; this will prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to the system. Once the network is set up, secure the system with the help of a password. The mobile devices that know the password will only gain access to the system; this would keep out other devices that do not know the password. Other systems can gain access and plant spyware or malware if the network is not secured properly. Use software that provides good protection to the device and the system.
The Bluetooth® network must be switched off once the network transmission is complete. Switch off Bluetooth® via the software once all the data has been transmitted. The Bluetooth® adapter is not to be removed manually to ensure that the device is not exposed; hence care must be taken to see that the Bluetooth® software is used to turn off the network.
