I often use my mac as a hotspot to access the internet on my idevices via bluetooth etc, but it has just stopped working.  When i share by bluetooth (BT on and sharing from ethernet to BT), the iphone doesn't see my BT. If I then go to 'set up BT devices' on my mac I can re-pair with my iphone, and then my iphone sees my macbook on BT. If I then try to connect to my macbook via BT, I get the message "Macbook pro is not supported" and I am forced by the dialogue box to 'forget this device'.


I have also connected my iphone to the mac via USB and shared ethernet > USB and the iphone just doesn't see the internet at all.


Any ideas ?
