Not all.
Broadband routers do have WiFi almost always.

that's what i said.

Modems, which connect to a single computer, do not.

modems are obsolete.


Maybe in the USA, but many people are using them.

Hint: a modem doesn't necessarily mean a POTS thing. Rather, a fibre or
cable thing, doing perhaps 100 Mbps.



You may call such a thing a modem, and you are far from alone. Many
people call that cable thing a "modem," but they are wrong. The word
"modem" is short for MODulator-DEModulator. It's a device that
translates an analog signal into a digital one, and vice versa. Cable
is digital to begin with, so there is no translation necessary.


yep.

I get 25 Mbit/s out of WiFi in a busy apartment building, so the

only because you're using an obsolete 802.11g wifi router, and/or
something is *horribly* misconfigured.

I'm using whatever the ISP there supplies.

they gave you outdated junk and it's not secure either.

How do you know that it is not secure? Have you tested it?

a 15 year old router is not getting security updates anymore and hasn't
for a long, long time.

And you know it is 15 years old, how exactly?
Because it ain't.


it doesn't matter how old it is. it's 802.11g and obsolete. 802.11n
replaced it a decade ago, so even if your router was one of the last
802.11g routers to be released, it's still obsolete.


How do you know it is 802.11g? I didn't say.

do yo see the and/or? what do you think that means?

your avoidance and evasion indicate that i was exactly correct.

Carlos, Carlos, Carlos! When will you ever learn! If nospam doesn't
use something, it's obsolete!

Previous example: If nospam says IEEE 802.11g is obsolete, you should
dump any 'g' stuff you have and buy 'n' stuff, even if it doesn't make
your WAN go any faster. Got it!?

Hint: a modem doesn't necessarily mean a POTS thing. Rather, a fibre or
cable thing, doing perhaps 100 Mbps.


Or 300 Mbps or 1 Gbps or ...

But I'm afraid this is my last post, because spam says "modems are
obsolete", so I'll have to shut mine down.

Bye.

As long as the *original* cable modem makers call them (cable) modems,
they're (cable) modems. End of story.

BTW, this was the *first* reference on the Wikipedia DOCSIS page. Not
*really* rocket science to find it.

And guess what's the title of the DOCSIS 3.1 spec!?

Indeed "Cable Modem Operations Support System Interface Specification"!

So can we put this sillyness to rest?

But for most people, a "modem" is what connects you to the internet, no
matter how. Function is more important than operation. That's why we
still talk about the "shift lever" even though it no longer shifts the
gears in an automatic transmission.


Just to throw another word into the mix, I'm on WISP which means I don't
have a "modem", per se.

I have a transceiver!

I've learned never to tall that to any customer support people for routers,
or Ooma, or Vonage, etc.

I just tell them I have a "modem" and then they're happy.

I wouldn't call them small (for Bluetooth transfer). Indeed they'd
likely take minutes - each. On WiFi, a handful of seconds.


So who (other than maybe nospam) needs to be done listening to an hour-long
piano concerto in "a handful of seconds" ? Cheers, -- tlvp

file *transfer* is not the same as listening to it.

At least equally true -- and rather more relevant -- if you replace
"preclude" with "assure". Cheers, -- tlvp

Moot point, because he's *streaming* music.

OP

I want bluetooth for only two things (but you can suggest more).
(1) To transfer files back & forth without having to join a local LAN
(2) To play songs from Android onto the more powerful computer speakers
