I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Bluetooth Dongle Not Detecting Bluetooth Mobile

Hi Sri, Welcome to 8 forums.
On windows type "msconfig" in search field at the start menu and open MSconfig. Go to the Services Tab and search for services related to Bluetooth. If any of them are unchecked they will not load on Windows start so make sure you have checked them.

Keep us posted.

I have connected the USB Bluetooth Dongle (BCM20702) to the "work computer" and it is detected but not flashing blue like it should be doing at home on my own computer. The wireless earphone "WLE1717" is showing up on my Bluetooth Devices but is still having the "searching flashing light" being shown on it.

I have taken a look at the device in "Bluetooth Devices" and it intermittently shows up as "Trouble Shoot" not the whole time, when I right click it, there is no Bluetooth option and it says "Mouse settings, keyboard settings"

What can I do to make my wireless earphone work?

I recently purchased these 2 items. Hoping for a headset for my phone and my pc.

Newegg.com - Kinivo BTH220 Black Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Ca
Newegg.com - Mini Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle

It worked perfect with my Andriod, but the Dongle does not seem to want connect with the headset. It seems the Dongle was not made to work with Windows 7 64bit. The bluetooth dongle will recognize the headset when I try to sync them, but will not actually let them connect for any audio. Here's a pic of the error.


I've tried reconnecting it multiple times. Been searching online for the past few hours for drivers and programs to get it to work, but no such luck. Any help will be appreciated.

hi, this is the first time im on this forum and i had a problem with my new bluetooth dongle.
well, when i bought it it camed with its own software. i herd in some forums that when a bluetooth divice is connected to a computer and u have sp2 there would be a bluetooth icon on control panel and a my bluetooth place icon in my computer. but i have sp2 but i dont have does icons. and also my mrouter does not find the bluetooth devise. so the only way i can use my bluetooth is with its own software , (which is useless to me).
does any one know how i can fix this problem?

A:bluetooth dongle

There will be no blutooth icon if Windows doesn't know you have a blutooth thingie installed. You need the drivers for your dongle. Try ones from the manufacturer's website instead of the outdated ones you have on the CD.

I need a Bluetooth dongle... but it has to work with usb 1.0 (maybe 1.1). The laptop it will be used on is a hp Presario c751nr. I saw most are usb 2.0 but I've heard 2.0 is also usable in 1.0.

A:what bluetooth dongle should I buy?

Most are backward compatible. If you want to be sure just look at the specs for the one you want to buy.

I have a USB Bluetooth Dongle that I used to use in Vista and XP, where it was simply plug and play. Then all I had to do was go to Control Panel and there would be a Bluetooth icon where I can add other Bluetooth devices. But after plugging it in Windows 7, there's no such icon when I go into Control Panel. When I first plugged it in, Windows 7 automatically and successfully installed the drivers for it. But since there's no way, or at least that I know off, of how to add a device to my computer on Windows 7, I tried searching for my computer on my mobile phone so that I can add it in my devices. But my mobile phone can't find my computer. How do I add other Bluetooth devices to my Windows 7 system? I even tried going into services.msc and setting Bluetooth Support Service to Automatic and starting it, but I'm still not able to add my mobile phone to my computer. Any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just simply typed in Bluetooth in the search pane on the start menu and there was an option to add a device. LOL!

Look for some Bluetooth install software for your dongle and computer. You computer must have a setup and pairing program and a profile for your phone to computer connection.

Most dongles will come with a CD to install such.

I have recently been given a blue-tooth dongle by a friend, but he didn't give me no driver disk. He said it wasn't needed as its plug an play.

I plugged the device into my comp an it was detected by windows.
But then it said it couldn't be installed as it didn't have no drivers in windows.
So i do really need a driver disk.
I have looked on the web an cant find any thing.
Also i don't even know the make of the device. All i have is Blue-tooth V.1.2 Class 2 USB dongle.
When windows detects the device it is named as Siw.

I have checked the driver-guide.com
an done a google search but I'm not getting much luck.

Does any body know where i can get the drivers for this device??
All help would be appreciated.
Many thanks

I bought a Creative D-100 wireless speaker about a year ago. It connects via Bluetooth and worked fine (at first) with my Desktop PC, using a Medialink USB dongle. However, after a few months, it no longer connects to the speaker. When I open Bluetooth Control, I see the Creative D-100, but when I click on "Connect," it acts as if it wants to connect, but after a second or two, tells me I am disconnected. I re-paired the speaker, but still, no connection.

A friend, on a recommendation from me, bought a D-100, but was unable to connect from the start. I also bought one as a gift that can't connect to the recipient's PC. All three USB dongles were from a different manufacturer. However, in each case, Windows 7 was the OS.

The speaker connects effortlessly to my Google tablet with built-in Bluetooth. My diagnostic skills are exhausted. Does anyone have any suggestions?

My Acer didn't come with bluetooth built in (because I didn't need it at the time), so I bought a 'dongle' from Broadcom (Kensington) WIDDCOMM whatever it's called.

I put the CD in, and all the drivers are not signed! After overwriting all of the install options, I get Installation Failed. So I check out their website and download their installer file, which downloads a 33meg installation driver package into a /temp directory; automatically launches the installer, which gives the error message "Installation Failed" (nothing more), then promptly deletes the temp file so you have to re-download the 33meg file each time you try to install.

I've been in contact with Broadcom's tech support (I wish they spoke English), who only tell me to Get a new Cd or 1. update MS drivers for the device & 2. Re-download the driver install file.

I've tried MS driver update, even let the dongle-hardware-install look up drivers on the web.

I've downloaded the driver package from Acer.com, which turns out is the EXACT same file from Broadcom's website. Bluetooth

I'm out of options, aside from taking it back and Hoping that the next one I buy doesn't have the same problem.

Any ideas?

Hi, i have been trying to make my new usb bluetooth dongle to work on my dell inspiron 1501 laptop for some time now and i ended up making it worse by trying to fix it my self.
I am running multiboot windows xp and windows 7 (RTM)
I first put in the usb dongle and it installed drivers but it would not pick up any other bluetooth devices and even when i set it in the settings to make my pc discoverable my phone could not discover it. I have read online and tried a few sollutions including making sure that the bluetooth service is enabled and it is.

I then found a sollution were someone said that windows vista drivers should work i installed them and it looks like my bluetooth dongle has malfunctioned and now i cannot make it install the drivers it is always saying "unknown device" if i try to update the drivers it says "cannot find a better match for your unknown device"

If possible could someone give me some ideas on how i can fix the malfunction error and also if possible a way to make it discover devices.

Also, i tried the broadcom bluetooth downloader software which auto-configs bluetooth devices but it freezes at "connect your bluetooth device" but it is connected.

Thanks for all the help.

Hi All,

I had an older Lenovo Desktop pc running Windows 7 Home Premium and 8GB of ram with no built in Bluetooth. I bought a Medialink Bluetooth Adapter - USB to Bluetooth 4.0 - Class 2 Smart Ready Adapter with Low Energy Technology. This setup worked beautifully. No real issues I couldn't figure out. I could walk around my whole (small) apartment and have perfect audio. This PC died of a power surge.

I bought a new PC here.

I plugged the dongle in and the audio is terrible. It will barely let me walk 10 feet before breaking up severely. It even breaks up if I put something in the way of the headphones; drinking coffee for instance. This is extremely annoying when trying to watch a video and then the audio screws up and is then out of sync. I figured I would need some drivers so I contacted the dongle's retailer. They gave me a link to
http://www.broadcom.com/support/?gid=2. I downloaded the Windows 7 64bit. Installed those and I've had no real difference; audio still cuts out. I have also tried using a different USB port. I am using a BT keyboard and mouse with no noticeable performance loss. I was using the same setup RE BT mouse, keyboard, and headphones, on the dead PC According to the Kinivo; the manufacturer of the headphones, there are no drivers for the headphones; they come from whatever the dongle it is you are using. Explanation on their website here.

i want to get a bluetooth dongle but dont know much about them. what is the differance between class1 & class2? also i have seen V1.1 & V2.0 is it similar to usb 2.0? many thanks gary

A:Solved: bluetooth dongle

Bluetooth (BT) classes:
Class 1, has a range of about 300 ft, it is the highest power (~100mw)
(but since it uses about 40 times more power than Class 2, it is not too often used)
Class 2, has a range of about 30 ft, it is the most commonly used (~2.5mw)
Class 3, has a range of about 3 ft, it is the lowest power (~1mw).
(The power used by Class 1 is only about 40% less than Class 2, and perhaps is not really worth the power savings in lieu of the much shorter range.)

As for the version numbers, you need to find out if they are talking about either the USB interface for the dongle, or the BT version.

Dongles referring to the USB interface speed USB v1.x is 12MBps (Millions of bits per second). Since BT data rate is somewhat limited to under 1Mbps, the older, and slower v1.1 USB speed of 12Mbps is much more than adequate.

There is a new BT version just now being introduced, it is usually called BT v1.2, or in some places v2 (thus the confusion with the USB version numbers). This is about 3 times faster than the common BT v1 (there is a v1.0 - seldom used, and v1.1, both are the same speed, just some connection improvements)
The new BT v1.2 uses less power than needed for the same power Class in BT v1.1

Hi guys,

I'm trying to figure out the best way to transfer all audio wirelessly (as if there was a cable connected to line out) and hook up a wireless mouse.

Seems like the cheapest way to do both things is through bluetooth. Price aside, I'm afraid streaming all audio from my computer via wifi would slow down my internet connection.

Problem is my computer (VAIO vpceb1m1e) doesn't have bluetooth. It has 4 USB ports. If possible I would like to use only one USB dongle (nano) for both things.

Is it even possible to use a same Bluetooth USB dongle for audio streaming and mouse control, both working fine?

Any system you recommend?

Thanks a lot

Hi there!

I have a Panda 4.0 dongle purchased on Amazon. As per some comments I found, I allowed Windows to install the driver for it as people were stating that the manufacturer was instructing against using the drivers included with the dongle.

Windows stated that the driver was installed successfully, I now have a BT icon in the toolbar and there's no errors being reported in the device manager.

The issue I have is that when I go to "Devices and Printers" or "Bluetooth Personal Area Network Devices", the location bar shows scanning veeeeeeeerrrrrryyy slowly to 100% then just stays blank. It looks like the process never ends. I never see my BT headphones that I've turned on for the discovery process.

I'm sure that the dongle is operable because in my Debian install on the same machine, I'm able to connect to my BT devices without issue. It just seems to be an issue in my Win install.

Could someone help me troubleshoot this issue? I'd love to be able to use my BT headphones!

Thanks for your time!

Pc mobo is kinda old, asus p4p800se, but it has usb 2.0, I have had no other problems with any other device. I know the dongle works because I took it back to the shop and they tested it in front of me on a xp pro machine. I run xp home sp3.

A:Bluetooth Dongle Frustration

Not all Bluetooth's are compatible with Win 7.
Some (most) of the cheap no-name brand generic devices are total complete garbage.
Save yourself the hassle spend a little more and buy name branded stuff.
Make sure it is Win 7 compatible.

I have just encountered a problem with my bluetooth dongle (sitecom). It was working Ok until i just tried it tonight. The only thing I have done that may have affected it has been to reset netsh/winsock as my laptop had the bug where windows assigned an incorrect IP address giving the connectivity error when trying to connect to my wireless network. I have googled and found things about microsoft bluetooth stack but nothing i found has worked. I am running xp with sp2

The exact commend i used to reset netsh was -

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

Any help would be appreciated

Hey guys,

Just having some problems with my USB bluetooth dongle here.
I plug it into any computer and it will activate a green light on the dongle but its not picked up the computer or any hradware detection wizards on vista or xp.
It just sits there with the light on constantly and as far as I am aware there are not drivers that can be downloaded for it as its all done automatically.
Any ideas??


A:Bluetooth Dongle Problems

I wouldn't be surprised if you have the same one that I got today.
The description of your device, the green led, your problem, they're all very familliar.
I have this one:

I don't know where you got yours, but it should come with drivers. Like you I expected that hardware manager would yell something, which it didn't. It turns out that you really have to install the drivers, otherwise it won't work, trust me on that.

In my case it meant BlueSoleil drivers that came with the product on a mini cdrom, but these drivers suck. Then you have the other issue that some of these dongles have a mac address of 11:11:11:11:11:11, because some suppliers wanted to save money by not getting a proper mac address. The BlueSoleil drivers will whine about that at one point, yell at you that you have illegal drivers and switch the software in evaluation mode (you gotta "love" those Chinese LOL). There are dozens of users complaining about this and for a good reason of course. Btw, I got one of those 11:11... mac addresses, bummer...

I followed the advice of some person and got these Widcomm bluetooth drivers:


After that, everything solved and much better software too, also more stable.
As for the 11:11:... it's very unlikely to run in a problem with that in the future, unless you connect to someone else with the same mac address, again... very unlikely (I spare you the det... Read more
