    PCI Bluetooth adaptor?

    Hey
    I was wondering if you can get PCI bluetooth adaptors? I've had a quick look around a few places and I can't seem to see any (on ebuyer and such like.) I was wondering if you could get 'em cos I'd probably keep loosing a USB dongle if I got one (I'm kinda untidy y'see!) - I'd only probably need to use it on my main desktop PC most of the time so that's why I'm asking about a PCI one - as well as I've have 5 spare PCI slots

    Are they available? if so, how much, where can I get one and how good are they?

    The range on bluetooth is anything from 1 meter to 100 meters depending on the class of the bluetooth application yeah?

    Cheers,
    Jamie.

    I needed some extra USB ports a while back, so bought a PCI card with an extra six USB ports on, two of which were internal.
    Perfect place for one of my USB Bluetooth adaptor.


    Fwiw, I've not seen a bluetooth adaptor with only a 1 metre range.
    Afaik, it's 10-100M, depending on the class.
    You can pick up reliable 100M ones for relatively little nowadays.

    Fair enough, that's something to consider then. I've got 6 external USB ports as it is (2 at the front and 4 at the back.) Internal USB ports is something I hadn't actually thought about so I'll look into it

    ta,
    Jamie.
