What, nospam said something I agree with? That's a first!

And yes, I know that when usage gravitates toward something that is
incorrect, the error becomes established after a while. That's part of
the nature of the history of all languages. There are many such
example in English. But I'm an old fuddy-duddy, and I object to such
changes. I know that sooner or later, I'm going to lose on almost all
such issues, but that doesn't mean I have to like them.

How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg? Four.
Saying that a tail is a leg doesn't make it a leg.

although the quote is usually attributed to lincoln, he didn't actually
say it.

Do you know which of these hardware choices goes best through floors?

WiFi has more range than bluetooth by far. BT is spec'd for 10 meters max,
'tho it seems to exceed that sometimes.

for class 2 devices, which are the most common.

class 1 can go further, but they're rare.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth#Uses
Officially Class 3 radios have a range of up to 1 metre (3*ft), Class
2, most commonly found in mobile devices, 10 metres (33*ft), and
Class 1, primarily for industrial use cases,100 metres (300*ft).
Bluetooth Marketing qualifies that Class 1 range is in most cases
20*30 metres (66*98*ft), and Class 2 range 5*10 metres (16*33*ft).

'tho it seems to exceed that sometimes.


because it can.

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.


Coming back to this point:

What makes you say "Cable is digital to begin with, ...."?

Assuming with "cable", you mean the coax cable part of a cable
network (mostly a HFC network). that part is analog, not digital. The
signals on the coax cable are analog signals, use RF, use analog signal
splitters, etc..

As to a cable modem not having a modulator/demodulator: DOCSIS, i.e.
cable modems, uses QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and hence *do*
contain a demodulator (for the downstream) and a modulator (for the
upstream).

Some references:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOCSIS#Physical_layer
(mentions the 'Modulation:' used)

I bought a router at a hamfest, even though I didn't need it, because it
looked xactly like mine and I figure if mine failed, I could just swap t
hem. well the power supply failed and I went to the other one and I
saw it didn't come with a power supply. But then I noticed it didnt'
have an antenna. But it has 4 output jacks for internet cables.


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

There are cities where you get a (single) RJ11 socket to connect your
computer to the wall in the flat. But no WiFi.


Maybe he doesn't live at his home, so he can not
contract Internet.Maybe he connects via mobile and USB.


the other home probably has internet.


What other home?


Ask him. Maybe he will tell, maybe not. :-)


i did.

It does not matter to me.


obviously.


Good!

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 learned never to tell such a person that I use Eudora.

The Care and Feeding of Customer Support People is very important.

I learned you have to buy an international bluetooth dongle to play
music (and news) from other continents.
