Actiontec Electronics Inc. has introduced a 25.49lb sterling USB Bluetooth adapter that enables any PC or notebook computer with a USB port to communicate wirelessly with up to seven Bluetooth v1.1-enabled devices in a 33ft range.

By simply plugging the adapter into a USB port, users can send print jobs to any Bluetooth-ready printer wirelessly, hot-sync any Bluetooth-capable handheld computer without fussing with a cable, and access the Internet wherever they are by using a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone as a modem.

The adapter can also allow multiple users to share computer resources. Any computer equipped with the adapter can use the same Bluetooth-enabled printer.

Compatible with Windows 98SE/ME/2000 or XP running on a Pentium 90 or faster with 16MB of RAM, the adapter operates through walls and other non-metal barriers, protects users' data with 40- to 128-bit WEP encryption, and offers added security through password protection and the ability to set trust levels for remote and local users.
