Wonderful software, just curious about hardware issues. I have read numerous posts about Bluetooth Range Issues around here and was hoping to get some people's opinions and experience.
I have an Intel iMac and a Palm Tungsten T3. Connection is great within the room with the iMac and through one wall into the next room. Connection not possible, however, in the room I want it in which is through a wall with a closet that is more of a physical barrier I guess. The distance is the same <12 feet. If I am accross the room, next to a window - connection great, just outside on the other side of the window, no connection.
Does a thicker wall prevent bluetooth signals?
I read that some mac mini's had horrible range. Does anyone else have problems with their Intel iMac?
Are there any ways to increase bluetooth range?
I did notice that turning my iMac changed the reception - it seems to get better reception on its rear end.
I talked to an Apple store "genius" about this issue and he offered to rip open my computer to see if everything is working. Not to thrilled with that option.
