How to make a Bluetooth chip to add in a computer

Bluetooth wireless technology is short range connectivity between devices as possible. One of the most common between a phone and a headset, but most computers comes with a Bluetooth-enabled device to communicate with ease. All you need do is connecting your devices and you are connected without the hassle of wires. If your computer does not have Bluetooth built in, adding a simple procedure.


Preparation

1. Wrap the ESD strap to your wrist and clip the other end to a metal object to discharge any static electricity that can damage computer components.


2. Turn off the computer.


3. Remove the lid and turn the computer on its side. Depending on the design of the case, that would mean regular screws, thumb screws or a locking system.


Installation

1. Remove the cover from the back of the case. This can be screwed or a locking system, again, depending on the case.


2. Plug the USB expansion card slot. Make sure the card firmly into the slot then turn on support for the case.


3. Insert the Bluetooth adapter into a USB port on the card. If the card has an internal port, you can use and maintain external ports for items that can be added later.


4. Place the lid on the case, then connect and turn on the computer.


Software and Connection

1. Install the Bluetooth driver software. The software can be integrated into the operating system. If the software for the specific device is not included, use generic software or the software that came with the adapter.


2. Open the Bluetooth adapter software.


3. Start the software and follow the instructions to connect your devices to the computer. Once the devices are paired, you can use them just as you would if they were connected with wires.

Connect sony dr-tn200 bluetooth headset to samsung mx-h620 hifi


Bluetooth is a short-range (33 feet/10 meters) wireless technology that allows two Bluetooth-enabled devices to connect wirelessly and communicate between them. If your son's Samsung MX-H620 HIFI is not Bluetooth-enabled, the two devices will not be able to connect in any way. If the headset were corded (it is not because it is Bluetooth) you could plug its cord into the headphone (LINE/AUX IN) jack on the Samsung. if the Samsung system is not Bluetooth, the only option is to find a suitable Bluetooth adapter to make it Bluetooth-enabled. However, you can use the Sony headset to listen to music or make phone calls from Bluetooth-enabled devices that you own such as phone, tablet, iPod, iPad.

How to Pair (Connect) a Bluetooth Headset to Your Phone

So you've heard of this new thing called "bluetooth..." But what is it? ...And what does it do for me? It's wireless technology that can link your phone to a headset, computer, another phone, or in extreme cases, your car and home.

We'll just start with the basics and connect a headset to the phone



Instructions



Things You'll Need:

* A Bluetooth cellular phone
* A Bluetooth Headset




Blue tooth can simply be called "a generic wireless technology that can connect your phone, computer, headset, PDA, laptop, and any other enabled device to each other."

In essences, it was designed to be a universal wireless connector between devices.

Ok... Here we go.
Make sure that both your phone and new headset are charged up.


Since every brand of headset is different, please refer to the instructions for "Pairing", but I will tell you how the most common headsets pair.

By the way, "Pairing" just means "connecting". If you find it more simple, you can substitute the word.

On most headsets, from the Headset being off, hold down the answer/end button down until the indicator light(s) glow a solid color (usually blue). This may take up to 10 seconds. They might flash first, then after a couple more seconds, go solid on.


On your handset, find the bluetooth menu.

On most phones, go to the settings menu, then to "connections" and then "Bluetooth". You are looking for a link to "Add a new device".

On Motorola phones, it is in the "Handsfree" link. Select [look for new device] select this option, and hit "OK".

Nokia Phones: look for "search for new audio enhancements". Hit OK.

On Samsung phones: **Bluetooth menu might be under "tools"** Look for "Add new device". Hit OK.


The phone will search for a couple seconds. If your headset is in paring mode, it will show up on the phone either with the name of device or something like this [unknown headset] or [b2.c3.f4.56.a1] (called a MAC address).

Either way, select it, and hit OK.


The phone will now ask you for a "Pin" or "Passcode", which is a 4 digit number. Headsets will ALWAYS have 0000 (four zeros) as a pin or passcode. I have never encountered a headset with a different number as a passcode. I have been in wireless for 10 years, and still have not found a headset that has any different numbers.

Enter these four zeros and select "OK"


The headset and phone will connect to each other. The phone will display a message that will be something to the effect of:
"Connected to headset".

At this point, the phone MAY ask if you want to use the headset. This means all audio from phone calls would be routed to the headset rather than in to the phone's speaker or earpiece. Select yes, or ok.


Your headset is now set up for you to talk on like a REALLY important CIA agent or something of the like...

Keep in mind that when a call comes in, the phone will still ring like normal.

You can answer the call by either:

1. Pulling the phone out of your pocket and hitting the answer button.
2. Touching the answer/end button on your headset without reaching for you phone.

The range of your headset is up to 30 feet, in a direct line of sight.

If you go into another room, your range may be decreased.

If you do happen to go out of range, the call will be transferred back to the phone, and as soon as you are in range again, touch the answer button on the headset to let the phone know you're back in range. It will re-transfer the call back to the headset.


If you turn off the phone, or headset, you can repair them again simply by going to the bluetooth menu and selecting the headset again from the list. It will reconnect without a pass code and you are up and running again.

*** Please note that you do not have to hold down the answer/end button on the headset until it goes a solid on again.

Tips & Warnings

If you have difficulty, please feel free to contact me and I'll help you get things sorted out.
