    Hi all,
    I have a late 2007 24" Al iMac with BT and AirPort. I just ordered a Kindle Wi-Fi only from Amazon. I don't have (or want) a wireless modem.
    Anyone know if I will be able to access the web by running the Kindle wefi to the iMac BT? I think both use the 802.11b/g/n standard.
    Thanks for any info.

    Bluetooth and most 802.11 devices use the same 2.4ghz frequency but you can't use one with the other, you have to have both ends on the same technology.

    You can use Internet sharing from something like ethernet to wifi.
