how to reduce range of bluetooth devices

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.bluetooth (More info?)

Hello,

is there a possibility to reduce the range of bluetooth devices (laptop, usb
dongle and mobile phone)? i'm interested in a solution for windows (xp) as
well as for linux. a range of 2 meters would be perfect.

best regards
Sarah

    Sorry Sarah, but if you only want 2 metres, use a cable and leave bluetooth
    alone.
