I'm using the arduino uno in part of a school project, I need the arduino to send information to my laptop wirelessly. I won't have internet connection. Any suggestions on the best way to connect the two? I was thinking maybe bluetooth, in which case I need to know how to add the bluetooth extension to the arduino. Thank you in advance for the help!  XD

Assuming your laptop has bluetooth built in or a suitable dongle then maybe something like this http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/wireless/bluetooth/bluetooth-module connected to the Arduino. It looks just like a serial device to the Arduino so use software serial or maybe hardware serial if the microcontroller is stand alone.

WiFi has nothing to do with the internet as such. So you could use the wireless/SD shield with a Wifly module or the wifi shield its self.

First off I apologize if this is not the correct forum to ask this question.  I wasn't sure how to create a post.  I have multiple Wifly model RN-111B modules.  I am looking for any documentation that would allow me to use 2 or more modules either to talk with one another or to connect to my Arduino UNO.  I would also like to retrieve date over the Internet via it connecting to my home network.  Please advise.
Thank you very much!

For two arduinos to talk to one another, use either WIFI or Bluetooth (master AND slave modules, slave cannot talk to other slave, and same with master).
To get data from your home network, again use Wifi or an Ethernet shield.

A quick google shows http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wireless/WiFi/rn-wifly-um.pdf & http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wireless/WiFi/rn-111b-ds.pdf
Maybe Sparkfun have more info on there site.

Thank you very much!  How do I create a post and not piggyback off of someone elses post?
