[access-uk] Re: Blue tooth.

Hi George,

Just an addition to your note.  I have the same Belkin receiver as you, and
I didn't even install the Belkin software, it was just picked up by Windows
XP.  The only down side to not installing the software, is that the
Microsoft Bluetooth stack does not support audio, so you couldn't use a
Bluetooth headset on your computer without installing the Belkin software,
but if you are happy with that, as I am, don't even bother to install the
software that comes with it.

All the best

Hi Alexander, 

After Peter's sad tales of woe in the last few days, I'm a shade hesitant to
comment, however.......

I bought a Belkin Bluetooth USB device from PC World.  I forget the number
as I'm not at home right now, but is it claimed to cover a 100 metre range.

All I did was to put the CD in the drive, and follow the instructions.

Eventually it told me to plug the USB unit in, and eventually finished the
installation.

The only thing I was tripped up with, was that it required to be turned on,
and that was done by right clicking on an icon in the sytem tray.

I then installed the Nokia suite, which in turn asked me how I wanted to
connect.  Obviously I selected Bluetooth, after which is went into a search
routine looking for my phone.

That failed, and I then realised I'd not activated Bluetooth on the phone.

Once that was done, I was off and running, with my Outlook Contacts and
Phone Contacts synchonised.

George.

Hi to Peter and all,

Peter, I hope you don't mind me jumping in on your subject line but I have
recently purchased a computer that does not have an infrared  port,
therefore even though I have installed the correct PC suite version for my
Nokia 6600 onto my computer, I seem to think that I may have the same
problem as you described at the beginning of this thread, namely, that
although I have Talks on the 6600 and PC suite on the PC, I do not have any
Bluetooth software including a dongle to connect the two together, since I
have always used infrared to connect any previous phones I had to my
previous PC as both devices had the relevant ports.

Therefore, I would be interested in information on Bluetooth software I can 
use in conjunction with USB   ports since I have these on my
PC and although
I will not want to upgrade Talks immediately, I believe that I will need
Bluetooth related software for the time when I may want to do so.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Alexander Shannon
