Setting up a Bluetooth wireless network



You can even use Bluetooth as an alternative form of wireless networking. We’ll show you how.

A single Bluetooth adapter supports up to seven simultaneous connections. You can connect a Bluetooth printer, cell phone, and keyboard to a single adapter. You can even use the Bluetooth adapter as an additional wireless network device. As a networking device, Bluetooth delivers a decent throughput of up to 2Mb (for EDR-capable devices – otherwise about 700kb) with a range of up to 100 meters between the access point and client (with no walls in between).
