First, what software are you using? Is it the Windows XP SP2 Bluetooth or the Linksys software?

If you are using the Linksys software you should be able to pair the computer and headset and then double-click the icon corresponding to the headset. This will make a noise come out on the headset. At that moment you push the [Answer] button on the headset and it should get the sound from your computer.

Pretty much like it would work if it was a mobile phone instead of a PC on the other side...

The WinXP SP2 Bluetooth Stack does not support audio devices. You can pair them and that's about it.

If you got a 3rd Party Bluetooth Stack install that and you'll be much happier.

That's correct - I didn't read the headline, only the body of the OP. Since it is confirmed the use of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 software then there's nothing much that can be done without changing the drivers.

Have you tried using the Linksys drivers instead? Are they basedo on Widcomm or IVT BlueSoleil?
