No I don't...sorry.  I think things got messed up when I installed the software that came with the adapter and then uninstalled it.  I'm going to check it out at school/work, which is where I need it to connect anyways.  Now that I know what i'm doing, I'll try that first.

If you have any other ideas, I would be interested in hearing them though...

Thanks for all this...
I have a Belkin  F8T016 (mini adapter) using the WIDCOMM stack. I've spend hours just trying to get past the pairing of the Wiimote and the adapter.

What worked for me was
1) uninstalling the Bluetooth software through add/remove programs, Widcomm  - (do a restart)

2) Following:
http://www.shootingsoftware.com/Widcomm.htm

-  Find the bth.inf file (do a search in the windows directory - mine was in \windows\Servicepackfiles\i386)

-  Adding the line:
Kensington USB Bluetooth Adapter=                BthUsb, USB\Vid_0db0&Pid_697a
with the "Kensington .... Adapter" replaced with whatever and the correct  "USB\Vid....." as found following directions.

- delete the entry (yellow question mark!) from the device manager and remove the adapter. RESTART the computer (maybe this is not necessary) and MANUALLY search for the "inf" file. Get windows to search the directory of the bth.inf file. If the install stalls looking for the "i386" folder as it did for me, just get rid of the extra i386...
The yellow question mark and the old adapter name kept showing up (as it did for JAH)

Everything seems to work fine. Except when I need to reconnect - often I have to add the wiimote again.

Now to try it at school.

Thanks - hope this helps someone else...

Hi,

I wanted to let you know that I purchased a microsoft bluetooth transceiver, paired my wiimote and got smoothboard up and running.

Thanks for your help!

Ok...well I played around with it at school this week....and still on luck.

Here is my story...

1. I turned on my computer and plugged in my Rocketfish Bluetooth USB adapter.  Went to the Device Manager...

2. Took the information from device manager and inserted it into the bth.inf file.
http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~zha249/Junk/BTH_Screenshot2.JPG


3. Unplugged my USB adapter and then plugged it back in.  MANUALLY located the bth.inf file
http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~zha249/Junk/BTH_Screenshot4.JPG


4. It searched and then found the following.  So clicked next...and it installed some things before saying that I needed to put a Driver Disc into the CD rom drive.....
http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~zha249/Junk/BTH_Screenshot5.JPG

Still no luck.  Any suggestions?

Try a new BT adaptor or see if the trial of Bluesoleil works.

I returned my Rocketfish Bluetooth adapter to Best Buy last night.

Therefore, now I am in need of a bluetooth USB adapter....One that is going to work without too much tweaking.

Any links or information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

ebay, look for the ones that don't require extra drivers (MS Stack).
