I have just created a couple new pages on Bluetooth network connections for Mac, Internet connection sharing and tethering.

It would be nice if someone could copy these and modify them for Windows.

And if you are really ambitious, Linux as well. I couldn't get Bluetooth working on Ubuntu 14.10 using the default System Settings tools, so it will probably have to be command line instructions (for BlueZ 4).

On Arch Linux I also wasn't able to get it working through the Gnome environment, I didn't put any time into trying via CLI because I have BlueZ 5, and it makes sense to target Ubuntu 14.04.

I'll try to get my hands on a USB bluetooth adapter and try Ubuntu. As for Windows- I won't be of much help.

Also- what are you using to take screenshots of the brick?

I think he's just doing grabs of the framebuffer .... and then running them through a program to get the colors to look like an old school LCD. They look great!
Sorry, the "Close and comment" button should be farther from "Comment" before I have had a coffee

On Linux, I would think that it should be easy (as in using GUI only) to get a connection if you enable tethering on the EV3 (EV3 is "server", host computer is "client"). The other way around though (EV3 is "client", host computer is "server"), you will have to set up a network bridge interface and then use bluez-tools (assuming BlueZ 4) to set up a network connection.

For the screenshots, I am actually using the "desktop test" version of brickman. It is the brickman UI with a different back end that lets me fake any information on the screen to get exactly the screenshot I want. You can read more about it here.

Alternately, you can use fbgrab on the EV3 to get a screenshot saved to a png file. But then to make them look like the other screenshots, you will have to change white to #adb578 and scale to 2x without using any interpolation.

One should be able to reuse most of the EV3 screenshots that are already available though.

I am working on this part to connect EV3 with windows. Once I am successful, I will post things here; by the way, it seems like pairing is successful however I can't get EV3 connected to the wireless network that I am sharing - any suggestions?

Please open a new issue for this and include more details (see issues).

And thanks for working on the Windows tutorial 👍

I don't know whether below info is needed... Anyway, I'll comment.
Connecting via bluetooth(blueman) in Archlinux succeeded:
Archlinux(pc) (May 3, 2018)
brickman v0.8.1
kernel 4.4.87-22-ev3dev-ev3
Note: Archlinux requires additional packages: net-tools, dnsmasq
I'm beginner, so it was hard to find above and I had trouble connecting.
