Welcome to Geekzone. Note that not all Toshiba laptops have Bluetooth. They come as "Bluetooth Ready", meaning they have the software pre-installed, and they have a slot in the motherboard to plug their own Bluetooth adapter - but the hardware is not actually there, being an optional most of the times.

I have a Toshiba M205 and it's the same - "Bluetooth Ready", but no Bluetooth...

Hi,

your are right.
Many notebooks from TOSHIBA are only "Bluetooth ready"

They have a website, where they explain how to determine whether a BT module is in the PC or not.
