I don't doubt you at all. In fact, what I was stating was that it was possible that they were interferring because 2.4 GHz is unregulated. I didn't know what the actual frequencies were. Since you know that 802.11b/g are using several frequencies that are lower than 2.4 GHz and that BT is using frequencies slightly higher than 2.4 GHZ, my question has been answered. Thank you.
Actually, they both operate above 2.4GHz.
Bluetooth operates from 2.402-2.835GHz, but uses any given frequency in that band on a pseudorandom basis for 1/1600 of a second.
802.11b/g, on the other hand, uses the following:
Note that the US only uses channels 1-11. Now, when you're using 802.11b, you're using a single channel, and thus that given frequency. Should you also be using Bluetooth simultaneously, there's a very small chance that, occasionally, for 1/1600th of a second, a Bluetooth radio signal will overlap with the 802.11b channel you're using.
This is not enough to cause a dissociation event in 802.11b/g, and it's certainly not enough to cause a TCP session to RST. At worst, in an RF-hostile environment, with a low signal-to-noise ratio, the access point may ask for a duplicate frame to be sent. But in that situation, you're probably already throttled and sending dup frames.
