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)

Bluetooth pairing codes

If you are familiar with Bluetooth wireless technology, you'll probably recognize the term "Bluetooth pairing". But do you actually know what Bluetooth pairing means?

Bluetooth pairing occurs when two Bluetooth devices agree to communicate with each other and establish a connection.

In order to pair two Bluetooth wireless devices, a password (passkey) has to be exchanged between the two devices. A Passkey is a code shared by both Bluetooth devices, which proves that both users have agreed to pair with each other.

This is the normal process that occurs with Bluetooth pairing:

Is h350 compatible with windows vista? i try installing one, i easily paired it with my compaq laptop windows vista os without asking any passkey. the problem is it would'nt work. i downloaded a bluetooth...

I've successfully paired this headset with Vista but only for Skype. In Control Panel set the Bluetooth discovery and it should pair OK but then you need to run Skype which will find the headset and ask if you want to use it. The solution is a bit temperamental because the microphone volume is usually either low or there is too much background noise.

Bluetooth headset won't connect in Vista

I had a similar problem. First part of the solution is to disable the headset profile for the headphones. These headphones can't handle both headset and headphone profiles at the same time. Second part of the solution is to make sure that your headphones are on when you activate bluetooth on the computer. For some reason, Vista doesn't like setting up the initial connection on-the-go, so it will just act like its connected and move on. 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.

Hope this helps!

Try 0000 ...  That seems to be a "common" passkey for BT headsets...  That's Four Zeroes...
