Can I use Bluetooth from my Mac for an internet connection instead of WiFi?
nbetolli 1 year ago
I got a new Mac for Christmas, and I can use the Bluetooth for an internet connection for other devices. I have the Mac set up in my living room, where I spend most of my time at home. Is there any reason I shouldn't just use this instead of my WiFi for things like my iPhone or to provide access for visitors? I know the range is limited, but other than that?
