Title: Problem with Dell studio 1557 build in BT dell 365
Post by: thang2410199 on September 19, 2010, 02:53:59 PM
Hello everyone, I am totally a newbie at this forum, so please gentle with me if I make any misstake :(

Before starting a new topic, I already read following sticky topic:
BT Problems, A Self Help Guide - ** Please read BEFORE posting problem**  New

I try many difference stack ( Bluesoleil / Dell's driver - Broadcom / Toshiba - I cant install it ) with my build in BT device: " dell 365 bluetooth module "

With Bluesoleil, I successfull connect and use Wiimote for Dolphin emu, but when I restart my laptop, Bluesoile crash / stop at " searching device ..." step.

With Broadcom, connection is fine ( at less this is what I think ). But no response in Dolphin.

Could anyone help me with Bluesoile case ?
If it can not be helped, I will think about buy a BT USB Dongle from Bluesoleil. Any recomments / warmings would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

P/s: I am living in Finland, so Amazon and many site does NOT ship to my address T_T.

Hi,

Which Bluesoleil version are you using?

If you plan to use Bluesoleil, you should use at least Bluesoleil version 6.x and above. Prior versions have a high tendency for crashes when connecting the Wiimote.

If you are using the Dell 365 Bluetooth module you can directly use the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack to connect the Wiimote.

We have several Dell laptops which are using Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to connect the Wiimotes.
