what goes for a longer distance, bluetooth or 802.11 ?<br>which one would also be cheaper to hook up 10 computers to it? (I am guessing 3 hubs of 4 and 10 nic cards)<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>___________________________________________<br>I'm just another Mac user at an 8 hour day Dilbert style cubicle job....<br>

802.11 (a/b/or g), and it would be faster easier and cheaper. Bluetooth is only 1mb/s at best.<br><br>

I am not concerned about the speed actually. As weird as it sounds, the slower the better. By being slow, that allowes me to split the speed.<br><br>___________________________________________<br>I'm just another Mac user at an 8 hour day Dilbert style cubicle job....<br>

802.11b is the one that has the most distance I believe. approx 350ft<br><br>802.11g/a somewhere in the middle<br><br>bluetooth 30 ft.<br><br>

think of Bluetooth as replacement for USB and WiFi as replacement for Ethernet.<br><br>[color:blue]Your unsolicited Apple authority</font color=blue>
