So far I am having a complete nightmare getting my bluetooth up and working at home.

I am using the X-Micro DG3X USB Dongle Class 2 with my Dell Axim X50 PDA and Logitech Mobile Freedom headset. I have only been successful getting the BT to work at my office location using the driver from X-Micro's website. The office system uses an Intel USB Chipset for both 1.1 and 2.0.

I have tried the same driver at home on two different systems, one using an Intel 1.1 USB chipset, and one using the *shudder* ALi USB 2.0 chipset. The device installs fine using the driver, and I see no conflicts, but it has the tendency to drop the driver from the device manager when scanning for devices. I have tried numerous drivers from 1.3 -> 5.0 for Widcomm BT adapters and the version is the only one that seems to work minus this issue. Update: appears to work as well without the WHQL errors.

I have troubleshot USB power problems, but I have yet to troubleshoot Wi-Fi interference.

Apologize my ignorance, but I am new to BT and it is a bug that has *bitten* me. I am anxious to get it going.

Has anyone else had problems with their adapters dropping from the device manager?

Seeing that I got no support for it, it just learnt to defy gravity (chucked it outside my patio door and watched how far it would go). I think it's the last time I'll buy a bargain taiwanese brand.

Best advice, stay away from anything that X-Micro makes and stick with a company that makes decent drivers and has some form of technical support.
