Re: I thought I had Bluetooth in my computer...

Yes, you can use bluetooth mobile devices. COM 3 os the port that the bluetooth uses to connect to a device. You can think of it like a wireless modem. You can also configure other COM ports for communication with bluetooth devices using the connection wizard. I would suggest not to do this unless you know what you doing. From my experiences with bluetooth devices they can b a little touchy, and you have to careful you don't want to pick a port that another program is already using. ConfigFree is capable of configuring this bluetooth connection, but there are also other programs out there that you can use as well.

Bluetooth not working

Check the Bluetooth driver in the Control Panel - Device Manager. If the Bluetooth drivers is installed properly, then disable it and buy a nano (very small) external USB Bluetooth adapter. It is affordable and it is available at or at local computer store.

if the bluetooth is not available in the configfree menu check to see if you have the driver installed for it , you can download the driver from Toshiba's website.
Bluetooth is an option on most of Toshiba laptops, check if your laptop has the module installed, and if you need to press a button or a function key combination to activate bluetooth.
