  • Airport Extreme does not have bluetooth connectivity so that option is a non starter.
    If you can connect your Mac Mini to the AEBS with an ethernet cable your Mini will then be able to access your network and share files with other wired and wireless devices on the local network.
    If connecting via cable is not possible you will need to purchase a third party USB wifi dongle that is compatible with OSX to gain wireless access to your network.
    A similar dongle can be purchased to give you bluetooth connectivity.
