After enabling Bluetooth tethering, pair your Tab S6 with the other device. You can set up Bluetooth pairing through your tablet’s settings menu or through the notification panel if you’re pairing with a fast pair device. Make sure that your other device is in pairing mode and close to your tablet.

When your devices are paired, you can set up the other device’s network connection with Bluetooth.

By then you can start connecting the other device to the Internet using your tablet’s internet connection.

To check and see if the other device has internet access, open a browser then navigate to any websites to see if it loads up successfully.

Otherwise, you may have to perform some basic internet troubleshooting to determine and resolve the underlying cause of the problem.

Once you’re done tethering, you can disable the feature by heading back to the mobile hotspot settings menu and then toggle to turn the Bluetooth tethering switch OFF.

This is recommended to save or extend battery life on your tablet and it’s paired device.

If you’re having trouble connecting to the internet on your other device with Bluetooth tethering, verify and ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on your other device and that it is positioned within the recommended Bluetooth proximity with your tablet.

Unpairing and pairing the devices again can also be deemed a potential solution, especially if the problem is attributed to a corrupted Bluetooth connection.

Mobile Hotspot and tethering features typically come in handy whenever the need to connect to the Internet arises and Wi-Fi network isn’t available. For as long as you have sufficient credits or postpaid data subscription on your Android device, you can use its mobile data to get your other phones, tablets, or computers connected to the Internet.

Some mobile operators or carriers however may set a limit or charge extra for tethering.

To avoid incurring extra charges, talk to your network operator or service provider beforehand.
