Re: Vista and bluetooth
Passkeys need to match in both the router/access point and the wireless adapter attempting to communicate with it. Whoever configured the router should be able to supply the WEP/WPA passkey / passphrase / network key If your router does not have a passkey ... you are attempting to attach to the wrong wireless router. (if that is the case you should consider assigning WEP/WPA security to your wireless networl (router/accesspoint and adapters)

You will need to turn on the WPA or WEP security encryption on your router. You can get to the router settings by using a computer connected directly to the router using a lan cable. You will need to use 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 on your internet browser. This will take you to a screen asking for a user name and password. The default setting is nothing for the username and password is "admin". From there you can turn on the WEP or WPA encryption and create a passkey. Then each computer will need to have the passkey stored to gain connection to the router. This will also keep anyone else from connecting to your router without the passkey. And make sure to change the user name and password for your router so no one can change the settings on it.
I think your best bet would be to disable the network adapter in "Device Manager". Install the driver that you want to use, then restart the PC and see if it sets it up with the driver you want. I don't know if "Vista" has the "Driver Rollback" feature, but if it does you may can try that also. I'm thinking the reason error messages occur when you're trying to uninstall that driver is because it's in use and needs to first be disabled. I'm not too familiar with Vista cause I've heard many bad things about it and didn't want to chance it, so unfortunately I can only give you my best guess ... hope this helps
Normally you setup a passkey or use 0000 or 9999 as a passkey.
The question is, does that pop up when you try to connect a USB device? Do you get that when you try to install the dongle? (That shouldn't happen). If you are trying to connect a PDA or cell phone, you setup the passkey for the connecting device on the computer then type it in to the PDA or mobile phone. If you are trying to connect a bluetooth headset, then you use whatever code is from the manufactorer. Normally this is 0000 or 9999.
I study your bluetooth and to find out that windows vista did not support that hardware..please communicate 3com for this matter. find details about your 3com is here: http://www.3com.com/products/en_US/result.jsp?selected=5&sort=effdt&sku=3CRWB6096B&order=desc
If you are on a Mac then...
I also had problems losing the use of my Apple Bluetooth keyboard in combination with the D-Link DBT-120 dongle.
I fixed it by going to System Preferences > Bluetooth > Advanced > and changed the default Bluetooth-PDA-Sync popup menu from "Modem" to the "RS-232" port.
This fixed the loss of my Apple Bluetooth keyboard during reboots and it also fixed all of the Bluetooth error messages I was getting in the Console > System Log... as well as all of the Bluetooth error messages I was getting during SUM (i.e. Single User Mode... Command-S during startup).
