For computer to computer, isn't that setting up a PAN ?
For computer to device, you use pairing to set those up.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883259

"Joining a Personal Area Network"

In that article, it almost looks like an item would show
up in Windows, which can be seen by "ipconfig" in command prompt.
(I.e. Has a network IP address.) In that example, it ends
up with an APIPA address, because there is no DHCP in the
picture.

I don't know exactly what you're doing, but see if there
is documentation for setting up PANs.
