I have a DELL Latitude E5500, XP Pro, Wireless 370 Bluetooth Mini-card, w/Broadcom driver ver. 5.5.0.3205 and cannot get the wiimote to connect.  When it starts to pair, I do not get any options...just says to enter the key.  I know there is not a passcode, but in this version of bluetooth there are no other options other than typing in a passkey.  Any help, or am I out of luck with the built-in bluetooth?  I can plug in a dongle and it pairs fine, but really need to see if the built-in will work.

Have you tried using this application?
It works great on my XP machine. It makes the XP recognise the BT and uses the MS stack instead of the widcomm
