How would you connect to a router with bluetooth and access the internet? The purpose of a Wifi Modem is to connect to a router and hence the internet. Bluetooth wouldn't be good for that. Not to mention the limited range.

This device clearly has a market and there are plenty of people, as evidenced on other boards, that enjoy connecting to BBSs and telnet boards with their classic computers. This is an easy solution, compared to the others that are out there, for telnet BBS type connections, anyway.
