What is the bluetooth module - I think I need it to have a wireless keyboard

    Bluetooth is built in; you can access it via System Preferences to pair the keyboard, etc.

    What year is your iMac? If you don't see a Bluetooth Pane in System Prefs, yours may not have it built in (most do, but there are some models that do not),

    Well, it should have Bluetooth, but, just to make sure:

     

    Go to the Apple and click on About this Mac.

    Click on More Info.

    Click on system report.

    copy what it says under Hardware Overview (Model Identifier, etc - not the serial #)

    Then click on Bluetooth; you should get a similar screen:

    Post back what it says.
