Bluetooth isn't really a LAN system, and it's definitely not
Ethernet. The range of Bluetooth devices is only a couple of metres
in general (this is all it's *meant* to be), and the bandwidth isn't
anything to write home about - Bluetooth is meant to be a
moderate-bandwidth short-range adhoc networking protocol; the real
wireless LAN standard is IEEE802.11b, which covers distances of up to
100m with bandwidth of 2 to 11Mb/s.
