Preferred Solution: Bluetooth connection issues on the G560

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi
Surprise surprise, issues with bluetooth headset.

I've got mine to connect, but when I tried to do it for my partner, all seems to fail. The main issue I have is to make the microphone to work. The laptop seems to be able to recognise, but not use.

Here are some screenshots I took.


This is a screenshot of the bluetooth headset being recognised by her computer as it appears in the bluetooth device settings.

This is a screen shot of the bluetooth recognising the bluetooth microphone in the recording devices menu on my laptop.
This is a screen shot of the same bluetooth headset not being connected to her laptop in the recording devices menu.

If there are any suggestions, please feel free to post.

Thanks

Vince

Hello all,

I have a Motorola Rizr Z3 that I am trying to connect via Bluetooth to my computer. I bought a Bluetooth USB dongle and plugged it in, which shows as having installed with no conflicts.

In the devices menu, I selected Add Device, then set my phone as findable. Once Windows recognised my phone, I selected it, then selected to pair it with with a code. I've tried both automatically as well as creating my own pairing code to no avail. I get the system error below.






Quote:
Adding this Device to this computer failed.

Adding the device failed resulting in an unknown error. The reported error is 0x0004005.

Contact your device manufacturer for assistance.


Does anyone have any idea or suggestions in regards to this one?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I just tried doing the same thing on my laptop, which has a 64bit install of W7 RC, and it's the same thing. So, I'm willing to guess it's not hardware related, as least as far as the computers go. The cellphone itself may be another story.

Answer:Bluetooth: Cellphone/PC connection issues

Try not to pair it with with a code.
You can add code later.

Hi.I've been lurking for a bit and have had most of my questions answered and issues solved bythis fine community. Thank you!My problem is that I can add my bt headphones (I've tried two different sets) in the "add device"option, but once I shut the bt device (headphones in my case) off and then turn them back onagain the sound continues to come from the tablet or stereo speakers (which ever I'm using atthe time) and the sound won't switch to the bt headphones automatically. I must manually go theSound settings in Control Panel options and select the bt headphone to use them again. As ofright now I've got a shortcut to the Sound options on my desktop. Now this isn't a deal breaker forme, but there's got to be an easier way! LOLS!Any suggestions?Thanks!And for the record I have no wifi issues and I've upgraded to 8 gigs of ram so I'm keeping this!!!

Answer:Yoga 13 Bluetooth Issues (Headphone Connection)

I haven't tried using a Bluetooth headset with Windows, but check: 1.  Right-click on the sound tray icon, select Playback devices.  Does it show a 2nd bluetooth headset device in addition to Speakers?  If so, left-click on it and try the "Set Default" dropown menu on the bottom to make it the Default device (or some other option that works better). 2.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933144 3.  http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/making-bluetooth-headset-default-audio-device/87178.html

My Bluetooth connection is totally erratic, I have a nokia 1020 with my band since today and cant make them stayed connected. I have deleted all other connections and the issue persist. Its like cycling between connect and disconnect and doesnt even allow cortana to work

Answer:Why am I having Bluetooth connection issues between my Nokia 1020 and the band?

I'd like to bump this because I'm having the same exact issue. Cortana doesn't work at all. I had to reset the band 2-3 times before it'd finally at least work/sync. Hopefully it's a software issue.

Hi! I have a Lenovo G560 notebook, with Windows 7 64bit, and i cannot use my bluetooth device.I have downloaded the drivers from /consumersupport.lenovo.com, i've instaled them, but the device is not working.Also, i have downloaded the Energy Management and HotKey tools, but here everything looks ok. In device manager the bluetooth adapter and the bluetooth enumerator seems to be installed corectly, but there are 5 items called Bluetooth Peripheral Devices that are not installed (i cannot update the driver from the list of installed drivers on my machine, and another driver doesn't exists). please see Device Manager and Fn+F5 Also, i can use no function from the tasksbar's bluetooth menu ("show bluetooth devices" returns nothing, "add a device" can not find anything, "open settings" is not working etc.).In conclusion, i don't know what is the problem, and i strongly need help.  Also, i need a full technical datasheet for the bluetooth device (for an application that i want to develop). I searched on the technical support pages from Lenovo and Broadcom (the manufacturer of the bluetooth device) and i didn't find anything in details(only "commercial' specifications).

Answer:bluetooth not found in my lenovo g560 windows 8.1 64bit

hi RAJUPUROHIT,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Prior to installing Windows 8.1, were you able to use the bluetooth functionality before?
 
If bluetooth was working before you upgraded to Win8.1, try the following:

Turn off the computer and remove the AC adapter and battery.
Press and hold the power button for 30secs then reconnect the AC adapter and battery.
Turn ON the computer and press F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to reset BIOS to defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
Boot into Windows and open Device Manager (press the Windows key? +R, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter)) and see if you have a Bluetooth Module installed.

 
If the bluetooth device is still not showing, try to install these drivers and reboot:
Lenovo Energy Management

v5.4.0.8
 
Bluetooth Driver installer
   - this will identify the type of Bluetooth Device installed on the system (eg. Qualcom Atheros, Intel, etc.) and it will install a generic Bluetooth driver. If successful, try pairing a bluetooth device and observe.
 
When finished, press Fn+F5 and check if you have the option to turn ON Wireless & Bluetooth (see image below). If these options aren't available, make sure the physical wireless switch is turned ON.
 

 
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

My G560 laptop always has problem on connection wireless network. It is running Win 7 Home Premium. When I click the small icon at the right hand bottom to view the available wireless network, it can see all scanned available wireless connection, but all are set to be "connect automatically", I can't change them. When I click my own WiFi access point to connect, it ask for the security key and I type correctly, but it is failed to connect. I open the Windows Network and Sharing Center, choose the "Manage Wireless Networks", I can't see the any available wireless network even I refresh the list. It is sure that the Wireless Enable bottom on the laptop is switched on. Also the WiFi access point works as other brand notebook can connected to it and access network ok. Besides, my G560 work fine when connected network using fix LAN cable. So it shall be the problem of my G560 wireless. The wireless adapter is Broadcom 802.11n adapter.  PLEASE HELP!! THANKS.

Answer:G560 Wireless LAN Connection Problem

Hi wfdavidsiu,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. Based from your post I would first suggest you update your Wireless driver from the support site. http://support.lenovo.com. and check for the changes then. 
 
On another note, do you have any third party wireless software managing your wireless. Some software such as Proset Wireless can causing somewhat of a conflict and it is best to disable or uninstall them and let widows manage the wireless.
 
Do let me know of the changes.
 
Regards

I am facing the following issues with my G560. It was purchased on 11/26/2010. Overheating - The laptop heats up and turns off after a continuous usage of 2-3 hours. Hinges - The plastic portion covering the hinges came off within 6 months. I continued using the laptop and now the metal hinge has come out and the wires have come out and I think the hinge may have been broken as well since I see a metal portion protruding below the monitor. Can someone help me understand how to get these fixed.

Answer:Hinge and heating Issues with my G560

Rajesh,
 
Welcome to the forum.  I received your private message with additional information and based on your indicated purchase date, the system should be under warranty.
 
Since you are in warranty, both of these issues should be able to be addressed by service.  The hinge sounds like it should be covered unless the system were dropped or otherwise incurred damage from use.
 
The number to call for support is 877-453-6686
 
Please follow up with me by private message if you need more help on this after calling support.  
 
Apologies that you have troubles, but I feel confident that we should be able to resolve them.
 
Best regards,

I'm encountering performance issues after a random time with my G560 Laptop. I couldn't correlate any software within this problem, so I guess it's more about drivers/BIOS... I'm running Win7 64bit actually. The performance drop is random timed but doesn't wear off after some time, it persists the whole "session" (until a reboot). The mouse is lagging like hell and there can't be neither sound nor video displayed with an appropiate framerate.Any ideas?

I have had my G560 since early 2010, and the wifi has alwaya worked untill now. Suddenly when I got home, it was switched off for whatever reason and I dont know how to fix it.Before you simply say "press Fn+F5" I have this to say - That is NOT the problem. When I do press that it says "please switch on the wireless device" which I don't know how to do. I troubleshooted and it said that "windows wireless capability is turned off". Now for whatever reason it seems impossible to turn it back on as I have no idea how.Disenabling and enabling the driver doesn't work, neither does Fn F5.Any help would be appreciated.

I recently purchased a G560-0679, and I love it. The only problem I have is with my internet connection sometimes. Every now and then it will say I do not have a connection, and upon repair say my ethernet cord is broken. This cannot be - it's not much older than this laptop. To fix it I have to shutdown and unplug my modem for a few seconds and when I boot back up it usually fixes it. It's not my ISP either - I've been with them for years and never had this problem until I bought this laptop. Also, I went to a free wi-fi hotspot (library) and it would never allow me internet access (wi-fi turned on). Although the icon said I had internet access, webpages would not load. I'm fairly computer literate but I could not assess the problem. Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

Hello, I am an IT Technician for an electric cooperative. I am having a very odd issue that I can not seem to resolve and I am in need of assistance.

We have 4 Dell Latitude notebooks all running XP and we also have some very high end GPS units made by Trimble that we are going to be using to stake out points on a map. Whenever I connection through bluetooth with the GPS I am able to pair but the GPS control software never recognizes it when I chose the COM port assigned to it. Whenever I connect it directly through a cable(serial to usb) it never detects it either.

However this is the odd part, when I test this on my desktop I am able to connect just fine with the exact same method.

Any ideas?

Answer:[SOLVED] COM port and bluetooth COM port connection issues

Are you aware of any differences in your Desktop and the laptops? Like Service Pack is different, or maybe a BIOS setting?

I have a Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium G560 model and out of the box, the WiFi would be set up to automatically connect to my home network when in range. Usually, it would connect to it as soon as it is booted up from stanby mode but recently, it takes from 30 seconds to 1 minute to find the connection and connect automatically. The WiFi adapter is on as when I click on the icon, I can see my home network SSID is in range but the computer takes a lot longer than usual to find and connect to it automatically. Also when I am connected the icon does not changed to the white bars. It stays on the icon that means "wireless networks available" (bars with the yellow sun dot) although when it is attempting to connect, it is the bars with the blue circle. Also when it is not connected to any wireless networks but detects there are some in range, the bar with the yellow sun dot is present as it should be. any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone. My last topic dissapeared, I can't find it on forum.I'm experiencing some problems with my laptop Lenovo G560 (3000). The reason I decided to flash my BIOS it's my laptop has problem with Graphics - I mean, my device manager is not detecting Integrated Graphics. nVidia Optimus is not working correctly when Integrated Graphics driver is not installed. The reason I'm writing here it is because I can't update my BIOS to newer version (or in future to install unlocked bios to control my VGA). When I launch NIWEx215_X64.exe - it opens, but after miliseconds - freezes on Initialize. Time is not elapsing, I can't controll mouse cursor. Just completly hanged. After "hard" switching off, everything is okay. It is failing on initialize so my BIOS is not being damaged. Is there any other option to flash my BIOS? Maybe there is an option to flash it not from windows?I unpacked NIWEx215_X64.exe and noticed there is a file named NIWEx215.rom. What I'm supposed to do? My BIOS inside (rev 3.5):   My system:Windows 7 Home Premium 1) My laptop had problem with graphics in the past. It was sent to Lenovo. They said they changed Motherboard.2) My laptop also has problem with speakers. I mean they work for a few minutes but then they stop for a few seconds, and again work, ang again... After reinstalling drivers, system AND ALSO AFTER THE LENOVO CHANGED MOTHERBOARD problem is present. So I think it might be possible ... Read more

Answer:G560 BIOS - InsydeH2o executable file freezes. Also GPU issues. Please help me.

In regards to the BIOS upgrade, the BIOS update you downloaded from Lenovo is actually a version that is older than what is installed on your computer.  That may account for why it is not installing.
 
 NIWEx215_X64.exe  is version 29CN38WW.  You have version 29CN40WW installed.
 
With all the other problems you are having did you ever do a One Key Recovery to restore the laptop back to a like new condition ?  If the laptop worked good when brand new a recovery might be a good way to fix the various problems you are having.  Downside is the recovery will erase your present operating system so you will have to backup any files you want to save and you will have to do the Windows Update that were released since the laptop was first purchased. 
 
Page #25 of your model's User Guide will explain how to do the One Key Recovery.  Also if you never used One Key Recovery to make a set of recovery disks, now maybe a good time.  The process will create about 2 DVDs that can be used to restore the computer in the event the hard drive is ever replaced.  The link below is for your model's User Guide.

Hi,

I really had not this 'Bluetooth connection' before.
But, I really don't know that pairing my Nokia Bluetooth with my HP Laptop Bluetooth would add this Bluetooth connection or NOT.
I really guess this Bluetooth Connection was listed there when I connected my Lapotp Bluetooh with Nokia Bluetooth.
Thus, I will really not have any problems if I deleted it. But I am asking you what benefit of that Bluetooth Connection.
This is below was not here:

Finally Could please let me know how to use this Bluetooth Connection.(How to benefit from it)? I really use an ADSL Internet subscription, and not Dial-up connection. Also, I am connected wirelessly to a Modem-Router. Thus, what password and username should I type in the fields in the above screen shot?

Answer:'Bluetooth connection' is shown in my Network Connection suddnly.

Pairing a mobile phone will create such an entry and there's nothing to worry about. I don't think you can use it to go online since as you said you are using ADSL and if you want to go online via your modem with your phone just use the wifi connection

I have successfully paired my windows 10 laptop with my Samsung sound bar, but cannot figure out how to direct the audio to the soundbar. The only device shown in the audio settings is the laptop's speakers and they are checked as the default output. Please tell me how to get the sound bar set as the default output device. Thx.

If you had looked in the W10 section you would have seen Bluetooth is an issue for for now. Once that is sorted you should be able to successfully pair.

Hey, I have a windows 7, on which I have started using a bluetooth mouse. However, it takes alot of time for the bluetooth mouse to get connected to my laptop after startup, which makes it useless because I am unable to do anything until it connects. Is there any way to make the bluetooth software start faster, or connect faster? I tried to look in the task-schedular but I couldnt see the bluetooth option in there, so I am lost on what to do.
 

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Bluetooth usually takes awhile to connect, due to the fact that Windows has other services and processes that load during log in, prior to bluetooth devices being detected and connecting. What's the make and model of your bluetooth mouse?

Hey guys!

Just recently purchased the Big Jambox, and I want to connect it via bluetooth. I connected it to my phone and Ipod, but it won't connect to my computer? I am trying to install drivers, but I just can't find the right one. I have an ASUS G55VW, and I can't connect to it! Thanks.

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Are you sure the laptop has Bluetooth? It's listed as an option on the Asus website and if it came with Bluetooth you shouldn't need to install any drivers as it would have come with them already installed from Asus.

You may be able to get the optional Bluetooth module from Asus or Ebay or where ever but it would probably be easier and less expensive to get one of the little USB Bluetooth dongles like this: IOGEAR GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 Micro Adapter - Newegg.com

I am trying to sync my mobile phone(Nokia) with my pc. I have the software and installed it but on first installation was asked to select a connection type. I selected Infrared, but later found that bluetooth is better, so bought a bluetooth dongle instead. I have installed the bluetooth correctly, but on starting Nokia software, I only have the option of infrared for initial connection before I can run the program for the first time. I tried uninstalling then re-installing the software, but have since found out that the software stores a file in the computer to "remember" the first connection method I selected. Therefore, even after system restore followed by re-installing the software, it still asks for an infrared connection. Can someone please tell me how to delete this/these files so I can start afresh using bluetooth because I don't want to buy infrared hardware just to start the program so I can switch to bluetooth!
Can someone please help a very frustrated numpty?!?!

Here is the step-by-step way to connect two laptops using Bluetooth.

Software and Hardware Requirements

In-built Bluetooth device on laptopBluetooth dongle (optional)Bluetooth drivers (optional)

Important - Since Bluetooth use short wave radio frequencies for data transfer, devices using radio waves should not be placed within 100 meter radius. Bluetooth signals weaken if the devices are placed more than 100 meters apart. Also before connecting the two laptops using Bluetooth, make sure that neither of the laptop is infected with any sort of virus or malicious program. They can easily get transferred from one laptop to another without your knowledge.

Step 1 ? Determine the Type of Bluetooth
The first step is to determine the type of Bluetooth device your laptop has. Refer user?s manual of your laptop to determine this. If it has inbuilt Bluetooth, proceed to step 3, else, proceed as follows:

Step 2 ? Install Bluetooth
Purchase a Bluetooth dongle from market (usually costs $10) and insert it in one of the USB ports. Windows XP or higher versions of Windows do not require any sort of driver installation, however, if it?s Windows 98, install the drivers. All types of Bluetooth also come bundled with control software, which should also be installed at this step.

Step 3 ? Switch on the Bluetooth
Switch on the Bluetooth of each laptop. A bright blue glowing light indicates that the Bluetooth has been switched on and ready for connectivity.

Step 4 ? Assign Status

I'v installed the dongle and the drivers and after a while of turning the pc off and on over about a week the dongle icon shows it to be unplugged. The dongle is never taken out of the usb port so this cant be. The only way I can seem to get the dongle to work is to keep installing the drivers everytime I want to use the.

Evening One and all, I purchased a cheap laptop at the weekend, and ran a network cable downstairs to it to enable internet/e-mail and lan connection, after a couple of initials problems (resolved here of course :-) )this worked well with full net access plus access to the shared files on the three desktops.Today, it seemed that the opportunity to purchase a bluetooth setup at a discount cost was too much to resist. The access point is a Belkin (no specific model number), and the laptop connection unit is a Belkin usb adaptor. After the initial install, I could access the net via a 'BluetoothNullConnection' modem in the dial-up settings of IE. This is stable enough, but at 115kbps is maybe a little slow as it has a 600k connection available - still it works.The problem is that I cannot access the other pc's on the lan. The standard local area connection quite rightly states that the cable is missing, as did a bluetooth lan adaptor which also appeared. After an uninstall/reinstall, I again have the net access, but still not the lan access - and now the bluetooth lan adaptor is not there either. Given that I can see the router at the 'far end' of the network, can someone suggest how to take this a step further and see the other pc's?If I run the network wizard, the bluetooth adaptor is not available to select as the required connection.The laptop is running xp home, and the pc's xp pro.

Question: bluetooth issues

hi everyone. i have a wifi+bluetooth antenna(s) screwed into the back of my computer. I'm not sure of the antennae model #.
there are 2 ports in the back of my PC, and I screw in the two antennae. the antennae have long(ish) thin cables that are flexible and sort of like wires, so I can move the antennae wherever I want.
i play Rocket League (the game) a lot, and I use a PS4 controller wirelessly to play it (or wired if it needs to charge). I use DS4 (a program) to make the computer recognize the bluetooth signal of the PS4 controllers.
the DS4 program tells what the controller's latency is, and it's often pretty high. it's not supposed to be over about 2 ms, but it goes above 10 sometimes. this makes it hard to play rocket league, even though I sit a foot away from the antennae.
I want to know, are there any GOOD antannae out there that would make my controllers not lag? If I buy a quality bluetooth dongle, how would I make the dongle recognize my PS4 controllers instead of my bluetooth+wifi antennae?
Thanks

Answer:bluetooth issues

I've had latency issues with my DS4 on my PC as well when trying to connect via BT. In the end, I ended up just keeping a long (6-8ft) USB cable plugged in, and just plug into that if I want to use the controller for something.

1. Connecting my headphones while im playing a game causes windows to crash completely (windows basically freezes) and I have to log out or reboot my computer.
2. Windows refuses to connect my headphones after a fresh install. I have installed the latest bluetooth drivers from broadcom. (This was solved by enabling the background intelligent transfer service in services.msc. I had to browse through hours of useless answers from microsoft customer service to find this. Apparently, windows 10 has the bluetooth driver management service enabled by default, which allows you to pair your bluetooth headphones. But it doesn't have the background intelligent transfer service enabled, which seems to be required to connect bluetooth headphones. So make sure to have both services enabled in services.msc. This is a combination of bad software design and incompetent customer support.)
3. Windows is refusing to let me use my bluetooth keyboard. Windows doesn't find it sometimes when its powered on. After about 2 hours of trying to connect my keyboard, windows sometimes finds it if im lucky, then asks me for a pairing code, without giving me a pairing code. Windows then refuses to connect my keyboard to my computer because windows wants a pairing code without showing what the pairing code is, basically preventing me from using my keyboard. This is insanely frustrating.

Answer:Serious bluetooth issues

You say this has been happening for YEAR'S? If its been going on for that long I would have to think its related to your motherboard. Might be time to get a new machine. Does it do this right after a O.S. install or re-install? Have you tried uncoupling all your Bluetooth devices and recoupling them? Have you updated your BIO'S and/or chipset? You could try a system file check, but if its been going on for that long I really think it's probably organic in nature.

I'm using a tablet PC running XP tablet edition.

I bought a little Bluetooth USB dongle so I can pair it with my LG VU phone in order to use the phone as a 3G modem.

I've managed to go through all of the steps needed in order to set up a connection, but the problem is that I cant get the tablet to "see" the Bluetooth signal from the phone in order to actually use it. On a brief occasion I can, when in "discovery" mode from the phone, get a pairing to occur, only to then loose it. I cant, on most occasions when trying to get the computer to discover the phone, even find the phone when it's sitting right on top of the USB adaptor!

This same phone easily pairs with my PDA running Windows Mobile 6.5.

My wife's phone easily pairs with the computer, and I'm even able to send files back and forth (I can do this sometimes with my phone), however her phone does not support tethering so I cant see if I can connect that way.

The Bluetooth control panel in XP does not offer much in the way of help, so I'm stuck.

If anyone has any advice on how to get this going, I'll be more than thankful!
 

Answer:XP And Bluetooth Issues

Did the adapter work straight out of the box or did it come with a CD? If yes to the first and you didn't bother with the CD for that reason, it might be worth using it now.

Hi there, I have a T61p machine with Vista Ultimate, SP1. I have all the latest patches from Lenovo. I have a docking station that I use at my desk. When the machine is docked I used a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth and Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth. Ever since I purchaced this machine (about 3 months ago, with Vista Ultimate) I have been having the same issue. If I have not used the keyboard for sometime (say greater than 5 minutes) the first time I click any key on the keyboard, the machine partially hangs. It will continue to play video or do other non interactive tasks, but for the next 45 seconds to 1 minute, the machine will not accept input from the keyboard, and it won't accept input from the mouse. I previously used the same Bluetooth mouse and keyboard with a Dell laptop and had no such issues (in fact, I still own that laptop, and it still has no issues with this keyboard and mouse) What action should I take?

Answer:Bluetooth connection hangs

Hello, Are there any power management features enabled for the Bluetooth adapter or devices in the Device Manager?  If so, does disabling them solve the problem? Regards, Aryeh Goretsky

Hi, you seem to have done just about everything possible, so one can only guess that the Bluetooth Dongle (that is what it is called) may be faulty.

I have just upgraded my laptop to a Sony PCG-Z1RSP (yes, seduced by the looks).The bluetooth function is driving me nuts. I'm trying to connect my Nokia 6310i mobile phone as a modem but can only do so via the standard modem over bluetooth included with the Sony/Win XP Pro which only gives 9600bps. The Nokia supports 28Kpbs and I used to get this speed via my old Dell with a USB bluetooth dongle? I've downloaded the latest Nokia modem but still no joy, it just disconnects immeadiatly?Other problem is getting MS ActiveSync to work via bluetooth in order to sync my Compaq ipaq. I can set up the connection and sync via the usb cradle and I can make bluetooth file transfers to and from the Sony/Compaq but ActivSync over bluetooth refuses to set up a connection?Any ideas out there???

I have been trying to connect a laser measuring device (Leica Disto Plus-Bluetooth enabled) to my computer via a Belkin USB adapter. It doesn't want to connect and I get an error message which asks for a pairing PIN number. I am told by the suppliers of the Leica that it doesn't have a PIN and should connect without one. Can anyone help out?I am running Win XP.

Answer:Bluetooth connection problems

I don't know anything about your laser measuring device. But usually, for bluetooth devices, the first time you try to connect with the computer through the USB adapter, you need to "pair" them by inputting any combination of numbers (both on the computer, and on the external device). The set of numbers can be anything you want. It's just to make sure that you're connecting the right bluetooth device. If there's a keypad on the laser device, just enter any PIN, and do the same on the computer when prompted.

Hi Not sure if this should be in here or the networking forum, but here goes.I am going to buy the Canon Pixma IP6220D printer. The printer has the ability to receive commands via bluetooth if I purchase a separate adapter - the Canon BU-20 bluetooth adapter.My question is this - If I buy an alternative to the BU20 would it still work with the printer??, ie a Belkin bluetooth adapter at half the cost. I appreciate that I need to have 2 adapters (one on the pc and one on the printer).Any help welcome.

Answer:BLuetooth Printer connection

Bluetooth was designed with interoperability in mind, however there are different versions and profiles. I see the BU-20 explicitly states it is Bluetooth 1.2 and the Belkin adaptor is 1.1 compatible so there is a real chance they wont work but never having tried it.......

Hi, I have a laptop with a WIDCOMM built in bluetooth and also a desktop pc with a bluetooth dongle attached. My desktop is connected to the internet through a router and I was wondering how I would share the desktop internet connection with my laptop using bluetooth. I tried it but couldnt figure it out how to make the internet work on the laptop. Any ideas? Thanks.

Answer:sharing connection over bluetooth

I have tried, but been unable, to get "Internet Connection Sharing" to work over a Bluetooth connection.The problem is that, in order to enable Internet Connection Sharing, there has to be a free network adapter to connect to the client PC. Windows doesn't recognise the Bluetooth adapter as a valid network adapter for this purpose. I've managed to get file sharing to work over the PAN (Personal Area Network), but that's it. With a file transfer speed of 1Mbps, it is not exactly a fast network!Why though are you trying to share the desktop's internet connection instead of connecting the laptop directly to the router? That, after all, is the purpose of a router.
