Hey guys,
I've got me this nice logitech bluetooth headset to work with my laptop and desktop.
What i want is to use it as a headset for my pc while gaming or talking on teamspeak/ventrilo/skype.

I've got an "unknown brand" bluetooth dongle and the "bluesoleil" bluetooth software.
I can connect the headset to my pc with this, when i do, i can select it as an audio device instead of my realtec ac97 audio device.

But, when i do this, it doesn't make any sound, nothing gets through, and i can't use the mic either.

I gave logitech a call about it, and i was advised to use the widcomm stack drivers.
So after hours of scouring the internet i found an install, downloaded it... to find out i didn't have a license.
I understand one must buy a specific bluetooth dongle to get this software licenced, so here's my question;

What must i buy to be able to use the widcomm stack?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Geekzone... You shouldn't need to change drivers at all, the IVT Bluesoleil works fine - just Logitech Help Desk being lazy with this recommendation - which can potentailly cause lots of problems with mixed drivers now.

Anyway, when you try to establish a connection to your headset, did you press the Answer button on the headset? The connection is not automatically established, it will beep on your headset to indicate an "incoming" call, and you have to press the Answer button to actually establish the connection.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Yes, i connected the device both ways, also it asked for the password to link up with the headset, which i correctly gave (the password was in the headset's manual).
Then in the bluesoleil main window the headset icon became green, indicating a link was made, also a graphical display of the link appeared between the headset's icon, and my computers.

Also, as i stated above, my computer recognised the bluetooth device as a usable audio device in the sound manager, but when i instructed windows to use it, it wouldn't work.
