[access-uk] Re: Bluetooth

Hi Barbra.

Before I look further in to this for you, can you please tell me whether you 
received any software with the dongle on a cd or were you asked to download 
software from a manufacturer's website, possibly something printed on the 
packaging or dongle?  The Microsoft Bluetooth stack is to put it mildly rubbish 
and you'd be better off with the Widcomm stack as that supports headsets and 
other audio devices natively without the need to install additional drivers.

  Hi Ibrahim

  There are two items under Bluetooth Radios:
  Generic Bluetooth Radio and Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator

  Does that help at all? Sorry, I am a bit clueless about this.

    Hi Barbra.

    OK, well put simply, if you just plug a Bluetooth dongle in to windows, the 
native windows XP stack will install itself however this stack is by no means 
comprehensive and lacks many of the features found in a commercial stack from 
the likes of Broadcom who make most of the Bluetooth chips embedded in mobiles 
and laptops today.  If you go in to the control panel, system then device 
manager, under Bluetooth devices, what comes up for the name of your dongle?  
If its a Broadcom chip then you can get the Bluetooth stack from their website, 
else you'll need to contact the manufacturer of your device for a copy of the 
widcomm stack as it is customised for device makers.

    All the best, Ibrahim.

      Hi Ibrahim

      I think that is the problem, I don't think I am using a Bluetooth Stack. 
It did mention in the headset user guide that one would be required. I just 
have a Bluetooth dongle attached to the PC, so I don't think that's enough?

        Hi Barbra.

        Could you please tell me the following:
        Headset make and model?
        Bluetooth stack your using usually Widcomm or Microsoft?
        If Widcomm, the version of the stack?  You can get this by right 
clicking on the system tray icon for Bluetooth and selecting about from the 
menu that pops up.

        All the best, Ibrahim.

          Hi, I have a Bluetooth headset which I want to connect to the PC. Am 
I right in thinking that not all Bluetooth headsets will work with the PC? I've 
gone to Bluetooth in the Control Panel and paired the headset with the PC, but 
when I go to Connect in the Start Menu, I am told there are no devices that 
support Personal Area Networking. So does this mean you need a certain type of 
Bluetooth headset to use with the PC? And is it possible at all to use the 
Bluetooth headset to listen to the PC?

          Thanks.
