Bluetooth Tethering

Recommended Posts

I had posted a thread some time ago about using bluetooth with the Pineapple as a means of tethering to free up both wifi antennas and still have wireless tethering. I hadn't even received my Pineapple back then and was a bit of a noob (I still am) and was wondering how that could be done. Foxtrot mentioned something about kmods? I tried to look at them on the wiki but nothing came up, could someone explain them to me?

You seem to think that bluetooth doesn't require a radio or an antenna. Why is that?

Sorry, I didn't include that I THINK the usb port could be used to add a bluetooth adapter.

Hi siftyy,

Personally, I can not recommend using Bluetooth as a means to supply Internet to the pineapple as it would be complicated to set up and has a few unknowns.

I would just get a third wireless and and plug that in over USB. We are releasing a list of compatible USB dangles / chipsets that will work out of the box with the WiFi Pineapple MKV.

Greater range and throughput that Bluetooth has (and also takes up the USB slot).

Best regards,

While I can't think of a use case preferring a Bluetooth dongle over a third WiFi, having options is still nice. I'm curious, has anyone actually done this? Or has anyone used BT as an axillary connection to their pineapple?

Is there a set date for when the list of compatible dongles will be released?
