I bought this bluetooth adapter so that I can connect my bluetooth devices to my laptop. The adapter works great and I can easily transfer files from my laptop to my cell phone and pogo printer.
However, it took a while and a couple of reboots in order to install the installation program. The first time I did it, it said that there was an error and I had to reboot. I installed it a second time, and it did install with no problem. Perhaps it is because of Windows 7 compatibility?
Even though there was a little trouble installing the program, the bluetooth adapter works beautifully!
I bought this dongle to work with my hp Mini 210 HD netbook and samsung cell phone so that when I visit those expensive hotels that CHARGE for wifi and LAN, I can hook up to my email and to the internet via bluetooth.
I only occasionally can get it to work. You will know it is connected when the blue lights flash, but most of the time Windows 7 does not even find the dongle in the USB port. When I am fortunate enough to get it to find the dongle (and I haven't a clue as to what makes it "visible" to Win 7 at some times, and not at others), the connection works for a few minutes and then suddenly drops, and it frustrates me when I no longer can make it remain on. The installation files don't include Windows 7, and installing with "Vista compatibility" doesn't help, since the files won't install if no dongle is found in a USB port.
I have successfully installed my telephone's modem with Win 7 (I'm using the 32-bit on my netbook), so when it does work, it works fairly well but certainly not so fast as the high speed connections I am used to, especially wherever ATT doesn't provide a 3G connection and I am forced to use ATT Edge.
I received a different wireless presenter than the one shown. I think it seems better than what I expected besides the only con that it can't do the alt-tab command.
- right size small and portable
- receiver dongle tiny and fits inside of remote
- Good range
- Fast shipping
- only one AAA battery required
- no alt-tab
This is something that works well and I can connect to my bluetooh headset and phone from my computer. Sometimes I would have to restart my computer to get it to work if I plug it in while it's on but i've learned that you can just make sure you turn it off before you unplug it and turn it on when you plug it back in.
Folks Belkin is way behind the curve on getting this product to work on windows 7. I bought this a year ago for Vista. It worked OK, but there is NO support for Win 7 so don't waste your time. Find a different adapter that says it works with Win 7 'cause this one doesn't.
I wanted to use bluetooth headphones with work PC. I found this device to be simple to install and responds well. I have had no problems finding my devices and I like the option to disable the device instead of only unplugging it to secure the computer at night.
