Which app did you use from Cydia? If you used MyWi you can tether your iPads internet connection to your laptop via Bluetooth.

as i said there is option like that, so iturned it on even though my laptop and ipad is connected with bluetooth, looks like its green light on my laptop there (by connection option) but no internet...when i connected it with usb cable or wifi it works great...bluetooth is the issue

If it works over USB and Wifi, why the need for Bluetooth?

Or unless you're like me, you want to know why things aren't working :)
