Belkin Bluetooth dongle - this is its last chance

Trying to sort a problem that just won't go away. I installed the drivers but they will only work under my Windows user name. If my daughters try to use bluetooth under their username it just sits there dumb and does nothing. Have tried uninstalling and then reinstalling. Tried coppyiong across short vuts. it just does not make any difference. Any suggestions where I am going wrong. This is really frustrating as I can not get the Belkin website - it seems to have dissappeared.

Check the system requirements on the Bluetooth dongle. If your system does not fit all the requirements, the device is not going to work. The requirements for the Bluetooth dongle are printed in the user manual and packaging. You may compare this to what is running on the computer by clicking "Start," "Control Panel" and "System." This displays the hardware running on the computer.

Usb dongle is not working

Step 1:
A Bluetooth dongle is an external Bluetooth device used to enable your PC's Bluetooth connection. Many Bluetooth dongles come without installation disks since the software is pre-programmed into the actual USB stick. These Bluetooth dongles are very useful on netbooks that don't have Bluetooth connection, since netbooks have no CD-Rom drives. Turn on your PC. Insert the USB Bluetooth dongle into the USB port on your desktop tower, or the USB ports located on the perimeter of your laptop. Wait for the program to auto run. Once you connect your dongle, the driver program should launch. Follow the onscreen prompts to install the dongle. A dialogue box should open that says "Installing Drivers" from the taskbar. Allow the driver to install completely before closing the box. Unplug the dongle and restart your PC. Once the PC has been switched on, insert the dongle. Double-click "My Bluetooth Places." This is the Bluetooth icon located in your taskbar, and it should launch the "Initial Bluetooth Configuration Wizard." Click "Next" on the first screen. Next, type in the name of your computer and select your computer type from the drop-down menu, then click "Next." Click "Skip" on the onscreen prompts, then finish. Pairing the Devices Turn on your external Bluetooth device. Double-click "My Bluetooth Places." Select "Find Bluetooth Devices." The name your Bluetooth device should display in the next window. Right click the icon for your Bluetooth device, and scroll down to "Pair Device." Enter the Bluetooth pin code for your external device in the "Bluetooth Pin Code Request" pop-up window. Then click "OK." The default pin code is normally "0000" or "12345." You can find your pin code in your user manual. If you are pairing a cell phone to your PC, you will have to enter the same pin code on your cell phone to establish the Bluetooth connection.

Belkin wireless mouse won't connect on power up of PC

A Belkin Mini Wireless Optical Mouse frees you from the restriction imposed by the limit of the wire that your mouse uses to connect to your computer. The Belkin model works up to three feet away from the receiver and operates on a 27 MHz frequency. It's smaller than a regular mouse, making it easy to add it to a laptop case or desk drawer without losing much space in the process. Before you can use the Belkin Mini Wireless Optical mouse, you must install it. The receiver and the mouse should sync automatically; if they don't, you must perform the sync manually.

1 Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
2 Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
3 Press the sync button on top of the USB receiver and then press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse to connect the two devices.
  • close Before you can install the Belkin mouse, remove drivers for other wireless mouse types on your computer.

I have had my fujitsu siemens for nearly 4 years. When I first go it I had huge problems connecting wirelessly. BT did however seem to sort the problem. It was fine for 2 years, but again I'm having to use...

Yes if it's just Bluetooth you're trying to get to work by a new BT dongle. If wireless and BT are on the same card buy a new BT/wireless card This one Desktop 802 11ac Wifi Bluetooth 4 0 Dual band 1300M Wireless AC PCI... Works great. Try to stay away from Intel I had to replace two of them in the last six months. The link above uses Broadcom and works fantastic.
