Hi,

I have a D-Link DBT-120 running the widcomm 1.4.1 b6 drivers.

Is there anyway to change the access of the network service so that I don't have to accept the connection every time. The other servers don't have this restriction.

I intend to use my ipaq to connect to a server but I won't have easy access to the console to perform the accept.

Nick

I've seen this problem with TDK. I've reported it, and they're looking into it. My connection from the iPaq to the desktop works fine, no authorisation requested. But when I try to connect my laptop, the authorisation request comes up. If I authorise it's fine until I reboot the desktop.

I think this is a bug in the version of these drivers. Have you reported back to DLINK?

I contacted d-link in the US and the response was :-


Date of Reply: 8/11/2003 11:42:06 AM
Products: DBT-120
Operating System: Windows XP Pro
The DBT-120 does not have this feature. For security measure, it will prompt you
for the authorization request.
Thank you for networking with D-Link.


This is a silly situation. As far as I am concerned once I have authorized my device and choose to not ask again, then that should be it...DONT ASK AGAIN. I think the software is crap, there must be a fix or another way around this situation.
Anyone have any other ideas?

This is a silly answer, you're right. The dialog existed in previous versions and the objective is to allow selected devices to connect at will.

You have access to a security list by right-clicking the device's icon on Bluetooth Places, but I found that checking/unchecking the boxes does not affect the notification - different from previous versions where these settings were always followed.

Perhaps a different driver or version may be a better option than the latest version. Do you know what version will allow this function to work correctly?

I could also return the D-link and get another brand USB-BT device if I knew which drivers gave the best result. Anyone have any experience with other brands ?

Thanks.
Nick

Good news.

I got it working by un-installing the shity D-link 1.4.1.6 drivers and installing version 1.3.2.7 the file was named bt500_1327.exe. I found a link to it on another topic.

Now it connects every time without asking, even after a reboot.
Also the driver is more reliable, before if I stopped and restarted the bluetooth device it would no longer work and I would have to reboot. Now with version 1.3.2.7 it works just fine.

D-link you can take your drivers and your tech support reply and %$(&%^%%.


Hope this helps others with the same problems.

A little bit too late?

I've just used REGEDIT to change the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WIDCOMM\BtConfig\Services\0002\Authorization to 0 (that's a zero), and now the request for Authorisation is gone.

I left the Authentication set, because that will ensure the device connecting is really the one with a pairing.

Seems to work fine now...

Great,

There is always more than one way to skin a cat.


I might stick to the older version as it was more stable when re-connecting.

Great tip! I made the same registry edit with my D-Link adapter and all is working well. Thanks!
