What Is Bluetooth? I would like to know - blob1.gif Well it isn't some strange form of tooth decay as you might initially imagine. Bluetooth is the name of a new technology that is now becoming commercially available. It promises to change significantly the way we use machines.


Take a look around Look around you at the moment, you have your keyboard connected to the computer, as well as a printer, mouse, monitor and so on. What (literally) joins all of these together?, they are connected by cables. Cables have become the bane of many offices, homes etc. Most of us have experienced the 'joys' of trying to figure out what cable goes where, and getting tangled up in the details. Bluetooth essentially aims to fix this, it is a cable-replacement technology

2 How? Conceived initially by Ericsson, before being adopted by a myriad of other companies, Bluetooth is a standard for a small , cheap radio chip to be plugged into computers, printers, mobile phones, etc.A Bluetooth chip is designed to replace cables by taking the information normally carried by the cable, and transmitting it at a special frequency to a receiver Bluetooth chip, which will then give the information received to the computer, phone whatever.

3 How about ? That was the original idea, but the originators of the original idea soon realised that a lot more was possible. If you can transmit information between a computer and a printer, why not transmit data from a mobile phone to a printer, or even a printer to a printer?. The projected low cost of a Bluetooth chip (~$5), and its low power consumption, means you could literally place one anywhere.

4 Ideas, ideas... With this viewpoint interest in Bluetooth is soaring, lots of ideas are constantly emerging, some practical and feasible e.g.: Bluetooth chips in freight containers to identify cargo when a lorry drives into a storage depot, or a headset that communicates with a mobile phone in your pocket, or even in the other room, other ideas not so feasible: Refrigerator communicating with your Bluetooth-enabled computer, informing it that food supply is low, and to inform the retailer over the internet.

5 The future, this website Whatever the ideas, Bluetooth is set to take off. To be honest it's going to be forced down the consumers necks, whether they want it or not, as too many companies have invested in it. This website is generally geared towards the technical issues surrounding Bluetooth, and its implementation in real life. But free feel to have a look around anyway, and see why this technology will have such a big impact on our lives. If you're a complete beginner & you want to know more go to the other pages on the website: the Tutorial has a reasonably in-depth guide to Bluetooth (can be quite technical in parts though), our members-only Download** page has some more general introductions to Bluetooth to download. Also check out the Resource Center, Articles, Glossary & Knowledge Base to further enhance your Bluetooth education. There are also related Resource Centers on IEEE 802.11 WiFi Wireless LANs, HomeRF, GPS, SyncML, ZigBee and other mobile and wireless technologies. Enjoy!

Bluetooth connections allow devices to connect without the use of wires or cables.
Some users of the Sony Vaio laptop computer have encountered problems with the connection of Bluetooth devices with their computer.

The problem lies with turning on the Vaio's Bluetooth function.
This is turned on through the computer's Wireless Switch Settings manager.

The icon for this is in the system tray in the taskbar when the computer is first purchased.
Double-click the "Wireless Switch Settings" icon in the system tray of the taskbar.

It is a a blue-green icon with "LAN" in one corner and "B" in the other.
Check the "Enable Bluetooth Device" setting in the Bluetooth Device section.

Click "OK."

If the device was already enabled, change the wireless LAN from "2.4GHz" to "5GHz" because, as the warning message should say, using the 2.4GHz wireless LAN and the Bluetooth device can make the connection unstable.

Click the "Apply" button after the appropriate boxes are checked to activate the Bluetooth signal. A blue light should come on near the computer's on/off switch for the Wi-Fi radio.

Click "OK." Another dialog box should appear explaining that the Wireless Switch Settings icon should now be in the taskbar.

Use this icon if you need to turn off or on the Bluetooth device in the future.

Does anybody know if asus 5dc have bluetooth?...if they do where is it?...and if it dose not can i download bluetooth and not drivers!!! please help!!! thanks


There are only a handful of topend laptops that come with the bluetooth hardware. Youn need to buy a blutooth device, a card or a dongle. I would advise the donglr route as it is easier to upgrade the device as bluetooth improves.

Want to install a bluetooth driver,it displays no bluetooth device found


Based on the comments of one of the user/owner of same laptop model as yours, to quote: " I got this laptop for my school work and it turned out to be able to do so much more. It's perfect size and the battery, compared to other Acer products, last for 3+ hours. It's got more USB ports than my desktop computer. It includes other features like a built in SD card reader,BLUETOOTH, an IR reciever, a built in mike, and much more. So far it has never locked up on me, I guess thats comming from the 1GB of RAM. It easly runs the new versions of Office and Adobe, and is great for the office ot the light gamer."

So based on the above, Bluetooth already exist in your laptop as its driver might be included in the motherboard software, which you don't need to install a new driver, all you have to do is to check if its Enabled & status is in Working Condition thru the Device Manager settings. best regards

There should be a bluetooth key on the on the keyboard to enable it. If there isn't one, check for bluetooth drivers in the control panel to see how to enable it or to verify the hardware.
