I'm not familiar with bluetooth, but wireless and wired networks aren't 
very different. So far as configuring them is concerned, the wireless 
needs a little more information, so it can find the other wireless link. 
Once that's done, in each case there's a network to connect to, and the 
same configuration tools do it.

And for mobile users in particular, both can come and go. One of the 
annoyances with wired networks on laptops, before nm, has been the need 
to "ifdown ..,; ifup ...."
