Wifi Bluetooth

WiFi Roxxxx

- Bluetooth and WiFi share the same band of frequencies ,
bluetooth is more likely to interfere with WiFi than vice versa.
Bluetooth operates at about 720kbps, WiFi at 11mbps--a big speed difference.
Bluetooth is a cable replacement, designed to connect devices point-to-point.
WiFi is designed to hook up an entire network. (
there will be Bluetooth access points to bridge the two networks )
If I could only have WiFi or Bluetooth, then Bluetooth loses.
But it's not an either/or thing.
The two wireless protocols do different things.
- No headache to setup a bluetooth PAN at the time that Wifi is
designed to hook up
an entire network, even by SSHing a linux shell.
