I have a Rocketfish USB Bluetooth adapter using the Microsoft stack. This works well to connect to a Wiimote. But it does not connect easily with the Wii Fit Balance Board. It requires lots of trial-and-error to get the timing just right. I also tried the WIDCOMM Bluetooth software without any success.

Can anyone recommend from experience a Windows USB Bluetooth adapter and Bluetooth stack that connects easily to the Wii Fit Balance Board.

I use a HP internal BT stack or a DLink DBT122. Because all Wiifit apps are Java based very problematic on a PC. I'm still hoping a .net programmer makes a Wiifit application similar to Wiimote Presenter.

Thanks for the reply. Is the Bluetooth connection process straight forward with the DLink DBT122 and the Wii Fit.

1) Add a bluetooth device
2) Wii Fit is recognized
3) Select "No passkey"
4) HID Services are added automatically
5) Wii Fit shows that it is Connected

My current Bluetooth adapter and software struggle with steps 4 & 5.  I have to repeatedly force the HID Services to be added. I never get confirmation of the Connection with the Wii Fit (whereas the Wiimote displays Connected).
