heya,

bluetooth is a communication device with a range of upto 100m for transfer of information at quick speeds generally used with camera's and phones but sometimes keyboards and mice.

Matt

edit: it is soon to be outdated as there is a new improved version emerging currently in the newest smartphones but it is still useful to have bluetooth

Ehhh... I would try going with an actual NIC (network interface card) it plugs into the pci port. Netgear and Linksys and Buffalo are all very good companies.
