Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / Re: Not sure WHAT the problem is...
« on: September 18, 2009, 09:41:33 PM »
Well I'm now running two dongles with two stacks.   Widcomm is working flawlessly again with the Airliner.  The XP stack is still hit and miss with the Wiimote though.  >:(  The first time the Wiimote "failed to install properly" and wouldn't install properly until I restarted it.  Any clue on what the problem there might be.  I tried all the fixes in the one link to no avail.  It USE to work just fine for about 2 weeks.  It connected everytime using the autoconnect tool and then all of a sudden this error message started coming up.

I really don't think it's a battery issue.  If I get it to connect using the XP stack I get the error message "You may need to reboot" BUT if I don't reboot it works fine.  I'll use it all day long with no issues.  It's a crap-shoot whether it's going to work on the first go though.  Sometimes I get "your hardware failed to install properly" or something to that effect and then no matter how many times I try it won't connect unless I restart the computer.  Then it works.  It's not QUITE as annoying now with the new Smoothboard update.

The real stumper for me is why won't the Smart Airliner tablet keep working?  It only works upon initial install and then stops working after a bit.  Will some bluetooth devices ONLY work with certain bluetooth drivers?  It works flawlessly with Widcomm 5.5.  None of the other drivers I've tried out have really worked with it.

The kids in my class really seem to prefer the Wii Whiteboard.  But *I* really like being able to walk around the room and stand next to the class troublemaker if need be and teach from the Airliner.  I'd really like to have the best of both worlds. 

I don't suppose there's a way to run two dongles with different drivers and connect the Wiimote with the XP and the Airliner with the Widcomm?  Right now I'm considering hooking up my school desktop on my podium under my laptop and running the Airliner from the desktop and the Wiiboard from the laptop.   :(

The batteries are fully charged.  It's permanently charging through the USB on my laptop.

I'm no tech wizard, so I'm hoping someone can help me out.  Talk down to me; I need step by step if possible

I have XP Professional and was using the XP default stack.  It worked great for awhile and then it said I'd have to reboot or it might not work correctly, and I often had to restart it to get it to work.  So if it connected with the new Smoothboard connect program and then disconnected for whatever reason I'd have to restart the whole system.

I did previously try all the things in the help thread an couldn't seem to fix my issue with the XP stack.

Alright, so then I got a SMART airliner to use in my room.  It came with a Blue Diamond dongle and Widcomm 5.5.  Widcomm 5.5 doesn't work with the Wiimote.  It runs the Airliner flawlessly.

So I use the Blue Diamond dongle with the XP stack.  Removed everything first, ran a registry cleaner.  Both the Wiimote and Airliner worked fine after restart (although I still got the "your machine may need to reboot for your new hardware to work properly" with the Wiimote).  The thing was that after I shut the machine down for the night and came back, the Airliner would not reconnect at ALL. 

I tried Blue Soliel next, after deleting all the devices from Device Manager (and running registry cleaners again).  Again, everything worked upon initial set-up and then after shutting down for the night it wouldn't work the next morning.  Blue Soliel DIDN'T give me the error message on the Wiimote, but kept sporadically disconecting every 20 min or so and would not connect at all with the new Smoothboard connect program.

I have no idea what to do or try next.  I feel like my options are A) run the Wiiwimote IWB with the annoying connect issue or B) just ditch it and use only the SMART airliner. 

PLEASE help!!

Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / Suddenly having connection issues
« on: September 02, 2009, 08:44:19 PM »
I have Windows XP SP2, using the Micro Dongle, which installs automatically using the MS stack.

About 2 or 3 weeks ago I set it up in my classroom.  Everything worked fine.  I'd come in, use the Wiimote Connect, push 1&2 and it'd connect.

Then yesterday I set up to try it out and show someone.   Suddenly I was getting an error message that said it installed but I may need to reboot for it to work properly.  THEN I started getting the constant message that it did not install correctly. 

I've tried just about everything I've read here on the tips, etc.  Updated in Device Manager, etc.

Wiimote Connect won't work at all anymore, I have to go through and add it in the Bluetooth program.  Then if I disconnect and go back into Device Manager under HID>Bluetooth HID Device there's the caution sign.  But I can't update anything it just gives me the option to unistall, which I tried, but when it reinstalled there was apparently another problem?

I don't know.  I'm just flustered and frustrated.  School starts Tues. and I thought I was all set to go.  :(

Okay, after almost 10 hours of work - uninstall, reinstalling, cleaning registries, etc.  I was able to successfully download 3.5 SP1.  For some reason I cannot download just 3.5 though.   Will smoothboard run okay with 3.5 SP1?

So apparently it's a 2.0 issue?  It IS installed, but must not be working properly.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled it though and the issue doesn't seem to resolve itself.

I have been trying ALL DAY to download the proper framework on my Dell laptop.  It downloads, but EVERY TIME there is an error in the install.  I read something about uninstalling each framework and then reinstalling them one at a time.  I did that and got them all re-installed without a problem. 

Any ideas?
