I have recently purchased a Logitech Di Novo media desktop and installed the software 'Logitech setpoint' and connected the bluetooth hub, now the keyboard, mouse and media pad work fine.
The setpoint software provides a user freindly interface to the mouse and keyboard settings only (No way of connecting other devices though, through this interface)

I also installed widcomm drivers and during the installation it seemed to 'discover' the hub and installed other bluetooth drivers, such as LAN access drivers, bluetooth audio etc...

My problems are this
1) When I right click the bluetooth icon in the system tray it displays a message box saying 'bluetooth device not found' - i was trying to get to the properties dialog box for the bluetooth icon.

2) Secondly there is a bluetooth network connection in the system tray that shows no connection. When I go to the network connections in XP it states that a network cable is unplugged.

I'm running windows XP pro.

Any suggestions as to wht to do next would be great.

Welcome to Geekzone. Are these Widcomm drivers you installed the ones distributed with the Logitech DiNovo or some other download?

The Logitech set contains everything you need to use Bluetooth, and any other driver downloaded from the Internet should not be used.

Thanks for the wuick response. The widcomm drivers were downloaded from the internet, not part of the logitech suite.

My only concern here is that there doesn't seem to be any facility for connecting other non logitech products such as my mobile phone through the hub. The logitech user interface only caters for the keyboard, media pad and mouse.

But i'll uninstall the widcomm drivers and see what happens.

Thanks
Matt

The Logitech software is just a branded version of Widcomm drivers and software - you don't need anything else to connect other Bluetooth devices.

You still need to pair the devices though.
