Title: ThinkPad T60 requires passkey
Post by: japtar10101 on March 17, 2010, 02:21:21 PM
I know this topic is done to death, however, I was told this place might have the best answers.

I have a ThinkPad T60, with Windows XP.  It's Bluetooth receiver detects the Wiimote controller, but refuses to accept it without a passkey provided.

Here's what the windows look like, in order:

Adding Bluetooth

Starting Wizard

Found Device

Passkey Required
(http://lh6.ggpht.com/_gPqPlOmDNQg/S5GyWna6I6I/AAAAAAAAAuc/Dwi9c9nshH8/screenshot4.PNG)

Apparently, this so-called feature occurs only on the new drivers.  Any older drivers are no longer available for download.  Also, there was no "skip" button anywhere in the wizard, regardless of what ever method I tried to add the Wiimote.  Every link lead to the "passkey required" wizard.

One method that DID work was installing the BlueSoleil drivers.  However, I need the driver to be available for at least 8 weeks.  That solution didn't seem viable for such a situtation.

So I ask: is there any other options I could try, or somehow miss while Google searching?  Thank you for the help!

As discovered by others earlier in the forum, you will just need to press Alt+S when it requires a passkey.

This will skip the passkey.

I seem to have similar issue with my newer Thinkpad T500 model, however I don't know about you but with my alt+s don't do anything...
