Problem installing WLAN card after installing Vista


First rule-of-thumb, don't trust windows updates for drivers. With that being said, you should find out what the chipset of that Atheros card really is. Download a program called Unknown Devices, by Halfdone. Install the program and run it. It will tell you the actual chipset. Then google search that chipset with the words "xp driver" after it. You should also look at the list and see what the bluetooth type is in you laptop. Usually it will be either a Toshiba bluetooth stack, Widcomm, or Microsoft. Then google that with "xp" after it to find the driver for the bluetooth. Install the software and driver and you should be all set.
Let me know if you need more help.
And if this fixed your issue please make sure to leave comments. Thanks.

How do I enable bluetooth in my Acer Extensa 4420-5963


Actually Acer use the same laptop case for some of their models, so the acer 4420 doesn´t have built-in bluetooth, you won´t find any driver for the bluetooth cause that reason. I have an extensa 4420-5910, have a bluetooth switch in the case but no bluetooth, if you check at Acer´s web page it say thet some models doesn´t have built-in bluetooth but the switch is in the laptop case... On the other hand, if you install an external bluetooth device, the case switch will be usefull to turn it on and off.

Iogear SAYS the driver works for 64 bit but i keep getting an err


The drivers for a 64 bit version of Vista will almost never be the same as the 32 bit version.

IOGEARs website does not list a 64 bit driver for your device.

No System Tray Blue Tooth Icon


The GBU321 installation software that comes with the CD was the problem. Called their tech service who made me uninstall the BlueTooth Drivers that the CD and Windows 2000 installed first, and then "directly" download and install the BROADCOM drivers. The adapter works very well now. Thanks.

You need to uninstall/re-install the Bluetooth driver. Once the driver is uninstalled, reload the CD first to the computer and once you see a message "No Bluetooth device was detected", all you have to do is click on 'Cancel' and continue the installation. Run through the installation until you finish it.

Restart the computer and plug the GBU211 into the computer while the computer is restarting. This should help you.

Have a great day!

Bluesoleil installation on windows vista


I had the same problem. The drivers from the cd and the website are not Vista compatible. You should be able to get it working by allowing Vista to install drivers itself.

Can't install my program/drivers


This is just Microsoft standard message to say they have not tested the driver themselves. Providing the file comes from a good source i.e. install CD then it is probably fine. Just go ahead and install it. If you feel concerned then set a windows restore point before you run it then you can back the change out easily. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

BLuetooth freezes up Laptop


it is most likely because vista does not have the right drivers for the adapter. Try going to iogears website and downloading them...if the exist yet. If not you might have to send iogear a message to hurry up!
