Does installation of a wireless ouse reequire using a port?


It depends

What is required though is for the same capability to be supported by your PC.

If its bluetooth connected, the PC must also be bluetooth capable, if the PC is not you can always get a bluetooth adapter to make you PC bluetooth capable.

If its infrared, then you need to install the adapter that came with it, usually they come with a usb adater.

How to use a bluetooth headset for VOIP on Avaya


Sometimes using a wired headset for voip (voice over internet protocol) can really be a pain. The cords are short, you can't move about very far before disturbing the connection and basically you are "chained" to the desk when using one. <br /> <br /> Wireless headsets are an option, providing hands free use but they also have their bad points too! The ear covers are large and can get sweaty after long periods of time. Some headsets are bulky and resemble "ear muffs" which limit your hearing in the space around you. Canceling out background noise is a good thing, but it can also be dangerous. Not to mention they weigh a lot when compared to a regular telephone headset. <br /> <br /> Ever wish you could use something like the bluetooth from your cell phone to get the best of both worlds? Well, now you can! Even when your computer does not support bluetooth technology.<br /> <br /> As long as your computer has a free usb port, enabling bluetooth technology may be as simple as purchasing an adapter from your local department store.<br /> <br /> I/O Gear has a bluetooth adapter that works great for this purpose and I bought one for less than $20.00. You buy the adapter, install the software and plug it in to your usb port. When the computer recognizes the adapter, turn on your bluetooth headset and put it into pairing mode. I have a Plantronics Voyager Pro bluetooth headset and all I had to do was press and hold the power button until the red & blue lights began to blink and the pc picked up the signal just fine!<br /> <br /> Once you pair your bluetooth with your pc, answering a call using Ayaya is a snap! The adapter provides 300 to 550 feet of wireless reception which gives me plenty of room to move about while using VOIP services. The bluetooth weighs nothing on my ear compared to the larger wireless headsets and the reception using the I/O Gear adapter is wonderful! I answer calls by tapping the tiny button on the bluetooth and hang up using the same motions.<br /> <br /> I would reccomend using this method to anyone who works from home using their computer for voice over internet applications. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

I have a Dell dimension 350 pc with just a modem connection for a phone line. I just got cable installed which has the ethernet hookup. i would like to still use my 350 with win. 98 if i can. how can i...


Does your cable modem have wireless internet? If so, you can buy a Netgear wireless usb port adapter for about $20 and use that to connect wirelessly to the internet. Your pc has usb port connections - right? (Usb port looks like a rectangle)

If you don't want to use a wireless connection you can purchase a cable modem with a usb connection for about $65. You run the ethernet cable to the modem and then a usb cable from the modem to your pc.

If you have a serial cable connection on your pc (looks like a round circle with tiny metal pins in it) you can buy a gender changer and convert that to usb (in case you dont have a usb connection or need another one). You can buy one for about $11.

You can buy an I/O Gear bluetooth usb adapter for $13 and pick up the internet via bluetooth by putting it in your usb port but I'm unsure how well it would work with Win 98.

If you have another pc that has an ethernet connection you could use good old fashioned bi directional printer cable and network both computers together. You may need to upgrade to win xp for networking capabilities.

I want to view my pictures from my ph to my pc


Some PH's allow for a USB-cable to connect the PH to a USB-port on your computer. Use a USB-cable to connect the PH to the computer.


Some PH's have built-in "BlueTooth" connectivity.
If your PC also has a BlueTooth adapter, then the two BlueTooth devices can "talk" to each other.

Can i use Bluetooth USB Adapter to connect PC to wireless router?I purchased a new PC that's connected to a wireless router for internet. I want to connect my old PC to the same wireless router. I don't...


Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

Plantronics 520 headset I want to be able to answer my home phone with the headset


Not sure if the '520' is a wireless headset for cell phones, or if it comes with a base transmitter unit and is made for desk phone. If it is designed for cell phone, then you have to have some sort of bluetooth transmitter for the PC phone (note that wireless is not the same as bluetooth). Check your computer store for small bluetooth adapter that plugs into USB port of computer.

Acer 4220 has a bluetooth button but does it need a bluetooth adaptor? Hard to determine.


If it has got a bluetooth button then it does not need any bluetooth adapter.it has got a internal bluetooth adapter.You just need to press that button in order to enable bluetooth on your laptop.

It is possible that the adaptor is not compatible with your version of windows vista, despite what the system requirements for the device say.

Below is a link where you can download the latest driver for your bluetooth adaptor. Support XP sp1, sp2, and vista. Try this driver
