I've been trawling through the other messages and can't find a solution to my problem. I've a Toshiba Satellite 5105-607 runningn XP which came with bt but which I've never tried to use before. It is also on a wifi network through a linsys router. I just bought a Sony Ericsson T630 which I have paired with a Jabra headset and it works fine, so I wanted to set up the laptop so that when I'm not near my home wifi network, I can go online through the T630 instead.
No matter what I try, though, I can't get bt to start on the laptop. I get the icon in the system tray but right clicking it just tells me that it could not get local device properties. When I run Bluetooth Service Manager ever option within it says it can't work without starting bt first. I'm going in circles. I'd REALLY appreciate an advice about this. Thanks.
