Bluetooth may help the disabled use printers

Conflict with IEEE 802.11b wireless LANs, which share the 2.4GHz radio frequency range, needs to be quantified and solved, Wooten said. Some tests have shown interference seriously affects the speed of the two types of networks if they are used in the same area, although findings on the affected range and the impact on speed vary considerably.

A task force of the IEEE 802.15 Working Group in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, in cooperation with the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, is working out a specification to solve the conflict.
