Any suggestion on what Bluetooth Dongle I should buy/order to make getting my the laptop going with both the Java Whiteboard and Smoothboard up and running as easily as possible?

This is increasingly difficult. I bought a new laptop last night vista with the latest Widcomm. I actually connected a Wiimote and ran smoothboard before I bought the comp.

The newer version of Widcomm does not use winsock (its just Microsft BT repackaged).

Java whiteboard to run in Windows needs the older Widcomm. You should be able to get it with the DLINK DBT-122 still but I'm not sure if it will load into Vista?
