I've been struggling with this for a few days now. Can anyone tell me which driver and setting I can use to get my XP machine to be the master in a BT PAN network? My Gumstix SBC is running linux. When the Gumstix sees a PAN master, it will reach out and create a connection. Unfortunately, the Win XP BT stack does everything *BUT* PAN master. Very, very frustrating. If it does support it, the documentation keeps it obscure.

Anyway, if anyone knows, please advise as to whose stack, and what settings I can use.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Geekzone. When you purchase a Bluetooth adapter it usually comes with a CD and all the software you need. You should use that software.

Widcomm and BlueSoleil will support the PAN profile. Toshiba might (I don't remember really), but 3COM and Microsoft stacks certainly not.
