Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / An (un)success story
« on: March 06, 2008, 07:47:35 PM »
Hello all.

I finally bit the bullet and decided to experiment with cheapness.  At walmart they have a 20 dollar USB Bluetooth dongle  I purchased it (since I am on a limited budget) hoping that it would work fine.  I got it home, installed the software it came with, and was ready to hopefully set up the wiimote.

I connected the wiimote to the computer just fine.  It was detected, said connected, and I even was able to select the keyboard/mouse input HID.  However, the wiimote whiteboard program would say that the wiimote was not connected.

I heard of much success using blue soleil so I downloaded that software and installed it,replacing the drivers and software that came with the dongle.  However, even with the dongle connected blue soleil would say that not bluetooth device could be found.

I am running on a gateway laptop with no internal bluetooth (obviously) with Windows Vista.

Is there anything that I might try in order to make it work?  If not, we now know that the 20 buck wallyworld dongle will not suit our needs.
