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.


edit: it is soon to be outdated as there is a new improved version emerging currently in the newest smartphones but it is still useful to have bluetooth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

hey i just picked up a new nic card 2 days ago and it is working fantastic. This is the one i would recommend from personal use...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833124107

omg i cannot believe the price difference from CompUSA. I just got ripped off, paid 40 bucks for mine..however i was desperate to get back to the internet so thats why i went to a nearby store.

hope this helps.
