I've recently purchased a Dell (Studio 15) laptop with inbuilt bluetooth. I'm very new to this, so would someone be so kind as to explain or link me to a tutorial as to how I can do this?

Thank you very much,
Equinox.

Hi Equinox,

I have two dell laptops, that uses the built-in Bluetooth, Dell(TM) Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module. By default, the laptops are using the MS Bluetooth stack. Therefore, I am able to connect the Wiimotes directly with Smoothboard's SmoothConnect without any additional configurations.

In short, just install and load Smoothboard on your Studio 15 laptop. If SmoothConnect appears, you can just press the 1+2 buttons on your Wiimote, and it will connect automatically. If SmoothConnect does not appear, you will need to connect the Wiimote manually first.

You can take a look at this page to see how to connect on other stacks.
