    "Wireless internet" could be implemented a few different ways. WiFi adapters can get you access from hotspots or a home wireless LAN. You may also be able to get access through a data plan on your cellphone or an internet-only device offered by your cellphone provider.

    For bluetooth, all you need is a bluetooth dongle.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      what would be the best way to do it get a usb wireless adaptor and plan or get a cheap phone like boost mobile and use it instead?

        you cannot get wireless internet anywhere outside of a hot spot.

        If you're wanting to have access to internet anywhere, you need a EVDO card or the like.

        These are two different ways to get to the net.

        Wifi is used around the house or at a small shop, etc. The other type is used all over.

          A wireless adapter and plan? What?
          Explain what you mean by "wireless adapter", if you would. Do you mean a WiFi adapter (802.11g, typically)? If so, you don't need "a plan". You jsut need a wireless network to connect to.

            I think he's confused between the EVDO "wireless" and 802.11a/b/g "wireless"
