So I have a nykon wand, a rocketfish bluetooth dongle, windows 7 and I also downloaded and tried bluesoleil, and for the life of me I can't get everything to connect.  I can get my computer to recognize that a "Nintendo RVL-CNT-01" Controller is out there, and either when I use BlueSoleil or the driver that I already had (not sure if it was the Rocketfish one or was already on Windows (looked like it was a windows 7 driver) it will tell me that it connected, but the lights on my wand never look like they link up (they will flash, but then just go black) and I can't get smoothboard or Johnny Lee's program to recognize that there is even a wiimote there.  Then either through BlueSoleil or the other driver, when I click on the wand after a little while, it just tells me it is not connected anymore.  Any ideas, anyone?

Maybe The conflict between window 7 and Bluesoleil causes the problem. I would recommend you uninstall Bluesoleil. Try to use Window 7 BT stack.

Follow this guide: http://www.wiimoteproject.com/bluetooth-and-connectivity-help-center/bt-problems-a-self-help-guide-**-please-read-before-posting-problem**/

Also, check your wiimote batteries.

did you ever get the nyko wand and rocketfish dongle working?  I'm having a similar issue.  Window Vista finds the mote but the 4 leds keep flashing.

I'm thinking its the Nyko, has anyone else gotten the nyko to work?

I uninstalled BlueSoleil, the windows 7 bt stack hasn't been working but to be honest I have yet to throw in new batteries, I was busy building the ired pen.  Buying new batteries tonight, will keep you updated.

Hi,

I would suggest you to get an original Wii Remote from Nintendo instead.

It will save you a lot of trouble trying to connect to your computer.

The original Wii Remote will be able to connect to Windows 7 without much issues.
