Hi, I purchased a Belkin USB Bluetooth Adapter - 100M (F8T013uk1) & a Logitech Bluetooth Traveller Headset. This works perfectly with my mobile phone & my XP Laptop even using it the headset within Skype on my XP Laptop. However, I am struggling to have the same setup on my Vista Ultimate PC. When I plugged in the USB adapter, it had a search for drivers within Vista however I needed to download Vista drivers from Belkin. This all worked successfully & it discovered, paired both my headset & my mobile phone, however the devices dont stay connected, within seconds of being connected they disconnect automatically. Also, it doesnt create a headset profile or handsfree profile within Skype which was automatic within XP.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

I suggest you have a look at the Event Viewer to see if there are any error messages that can help - I'd suspect a driver problem.
