Bluetooth® module in ASUS® K50IN
Do you want to know how to turn On/Off the Bluetooth feature of the ASUS K50IN? Do you know the advantages and disadvantages of activating your Bluetooth module?
A Bluetooth module is another way of connecting devices. It is very common in mobile phones and PDA since it allows quick and easy transfer of data. A lot of laptops now come preinstalled with a Bluetooth module to add another capability as it allows phones to connect wirelessly to the laptop and sync or even act as a modem. The ASUS K50IN is one of these laptops. Usage is quite different though so you should learn how to use the Bluetooth module of the ASUS K50IN.
Here are some tips on the usage of Bluetooth:
- Turning the module On/Off
- How to pair your devices
- Why to keep your Bluetooth module off
Turning the module On/Off
Before you can use the Bluetooth module of your ASUS K50IN, you need to know how to turn it on or off first. It is relatively easy as the Bluetooth module is incorporated into the Wi-Fi module. So turning your Wi-Fi on would also turn-on your Bluetooth, and the same is true when you turn it off. The ASUS K50IN hotkey for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is ‘Fn’+ ‘F2’ (hold the ‘FN’ key then press ‘F2’). It simply toggles between on and off. You can also turn-off your Bluetooth module only by locating its icon in the taskbar. Right-click on it and click on ‘Turn off adapter’.
How to pair your devices
Pairing devices with your ASUS K50IN is basically the same with mobile phones. Just read the manual of each device to find out how to do this. Typically, devices like headsets, keyboards, and the likes have a default pass code which is usually “0000”. For mobile phones, PDAs, and other devices that have a screen and keyboard, you can pair as long as you enter the same pass code on both devices.
As Bluetooth is another entry point into your computer, it is possible that unscrupulous people might attempt to access your computer through it. They can drop malicious files or other equally harming things. Bluetooth also consumes a portion of your laptops battery power for as long as it is turned on; no matter if it is being used or not, but more power is consumed when it is used than when not. Because of this, it is much easier to just turn it off when not in use.
