100m Bluetooth dongle
Bluesoleil software

i can't belive i'm still trying to do this

anyway i've read a few threads on the forum and saw that i can connect to the internet as long as i'm connected via bluetooth to activesync

problem is i can't do that either due to this "Bluesoleil" software that came bundled with the bluetooth adaptor.

I tried to uninstall the software and keep the drivers so i could use the XP bluetooth wizzard but i can't find the wizard. PC says "i cannot use it due to installed software etc.. basically not with drivers or dongle"

any advise to get me syncing via BT ?

cheers
Jok
