I hope some one can help me out with understanding bluetooth. Lets say I have two computers with bluetooth adapters. Does that mean I can transfer files between them.

If I can is that hard to setup?

Thanks I understand the technology now. But niether of the sites answered my question.

I know that you can link a cellphone, or pda to a computer using a usb adapter on the computer.

But can you link a desktop, to a notebook, using 2 USB adapters. and if you can would you then be able to access the internet, via the network established?

First off, I have never used BlueTooth for networking computers.

I found another bluetooth device that claims that you can transfer files.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...ac&ATT=ZUB6111C

If you take a closer look at the specs it shows that the range is limited and the transfer rate is slower than other methods. I prefer using a wired or other wireless technologies for connecting computers. To me, bluetooth looks great for peripherals and devices that that connect at a short distance and require slower transfer rates.

Interface USB 1.1

Transfer rate Up to 723 Kbps
Antenna 2dBi PCB Antenna
Range 32.8ft (10m)
Transmission Power Class 2

Standby Mode: 28mA
Sensitivity <-88dBm at < 0.1% BER
Operating Systems Supported Windows Win 98SE/Me/2000/XP, MAC 10,3,5
Dimensions 1.93" x 0.67" x 0.35"
Features
Features Class 2, 20-30M; Support Bluetooth Function; Serial Port; Dial Up Networking; Fax;Headset; PIM Item Transfer; PIM Synchronization; File Transfer; Network Access; Audio Gateway; HID

I hope this helps...
