Question about Rocketfish Bluetooth USB Adapter (RF-FLBTAD) Bluetooth

1 Answer

In attempting to add a device (HP5500 PDA), I got to the Bluetooth security setup and was prompted for a passkey. A number came up on the screen initially, but there was some sort of problem and now I have no idea of what the number was or where to get it.

    I had already tried the 0000. It did not work. I tried removing the bluetooth device software and reinstalling. It did not work. There is a setting for a passkey on the PDA. I set one and tried to link to the bluetooth device. No luck, still asked for a passkey. I deleted the passkey at that point. The Bluetooth device recognizes the PDA as being there, but the security issue is a problem.

    Good ideas, but I never get an option to choose a passkey. Nothing has worked.

    I have tried the disconnect, no luck. I have uninstalled the bluetooth and re-installed it. No luck. I am stumped.

    I tried the system restore and got the same results. Thanks for your help. I will try the PDA tech support.

Hi,

If you already had the passkey and you haven't changed it then you can try 0000
Most of the bluetooth devices have this common passkey.

Also you can reset the code. Refer to the manual you received.


Hope this is helpful.

    Have you tried 00000 / 1111 as well ? If not, try it.

    2nd Step.

    Once your bluetooth discovers the device and you click it and select next Choose the option "Choose a passkey for me". Then you click
    next and your PDA should generates a random passkey and begins trying to
    syn and install.
    Enter the passkey and press Enter and it should work.

    If none of this works, You will have to uninstall the Bluetooth drivers from PC and reinstall it to make it work.

    My suggestion would be to do a system restore to the date everything was working fine ( bluetooth connectivity ) and if that does not work, do a system restore to previous date before installation.

    Also you can try to disconnect the bluetooth and re-connect it again.

Bluetooth cant searching another device? what i should did for that?


Depending on your computer and any bluetooth devices make sure both have bluetooth are either turned on or made bluetooth discoverable
Bluetooth Pairing

Bluetooth pairing is necessary whenever two Bluetooth devices connect to each other to share resources.
A trusted relationship is established between the devices using a numerical password, commonly referred to as a passkey.
Depending on how often one Bluetooth device connects to another, the user might opt to have the passkey saved for future connection attempts or prompt to enter the passkey each time the devices request communication with each other.

Bluetooth Pairing Service
In most cases, Bluetooth devices are paired only once, and the details of the relationship are saved for later connections.
The pairing service, an integral component of all Bluetooth devices, is responsible for maintaining a list of devices that have made successful connections in the past.
It is essentially a passkey manager remembers the specific details for other trusted Bluetooth devices.
If a user has a reason not to allow automatic connections for specific devices, the Bluetooth pairing service will not store passkey details.


Preparing to Pair Because Bluetooth is a standardized-communication method, making trusted connections between Bluetooth devices is a straight-forward and simple process.
Before attempting to pair two Bluetooth devices for the first time, it is recommended to have both devices fully charged, turned on and Bluetooth enabled.
At least one of the devices must be set to discoverable mode, which means for a short period, the device will be announcing its presence to other devices within its range.

Pairing Bluetooth Devices

Have the second device search for other Bluetooth devices.
There are many types of devices on the market and just as many ways to put your device into discoverable or searching modes.
It is recommended you view the documentation for your specific devices to determine how to enter these modes.
Within 30 seconds, you should see the devices have found each other and a prompt to enter a passkey will be presented.

Bluetooth Pairing Passkey

The passkey is a four-digit number you supply at the time you are establishing your trusted relationship between devices.
If a specific passkey is set by the manufacturer, you can try "0000," or you might have to find the passkey in your device's documentation and enter that instead.
After you enter a passkey, the other device might prompt you to enter the passkey you entered. When the passkey is verified on the other device, the two have been paired.
The Bluetooth device and passkey information are stored using the pairing service so future pairing attempts do not have to be made unless desired as a security precaution.

How can I on the bluetooth on my laptop aspire 4743Z?


Connecting your Bluetooth wireless phone with your laptop is called pairing, and I'll use a Blackberry Curve to show you how it works. I'm assuming your laptop comes with a built-in Bluetooth adapter (or you can also get a Bluetooth adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports).
First make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone. For Blackberry phones, that means selecting the "Set Up Bluetooth" application from the main screen, and then selecting "Enable Bluetooth" after clicking the menu button.
Next, set up your computer to allow Bluetooth connections. If your computer comes with Bluetooth, then you'll see a Bluetooth icon in your Control Panel (Start button -> Control Panel from Vista):
control-panel-bluetooth.jpg Double-click the Bluetooth icon and you'll see a Bluetooth Devices dialog. Click the Options tab and make sure the options to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer" and "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" are both checked
bluetooth-devices-options.jpg Next, click the Devices tab and then click the "Add" button. This will open the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard, and after verifying that your device is set up and ready to be found (ie. Bluetooth has been enabled on your wireless phone) it will try to find your phone.
add-bluetooth-device.jpg Select the Bluetooth device and click Next to set up a passkey, which is a number that associates your computer with a Bluetooth enabled device. For security reasons, most Bluetooth enabled devices (with some exceptions, such as mice) require you to use a passkey. Using a passkey helps ensure that your computer is connecting to the device that you intended and not someone else's device that is nearby.
You can choose your own passkey or let Windows choose one for you. Click Next and then pick up your phone, which will prompt you to enter in the passkey. After entering the passkey in your phone, Windows will finish the pairing process and your phone will be connected via Bluetooth.

How can i transfer pictures and videos from htc hero to computor


You'll learn how to transfer file (music, photos, videos, ring tones, documents, etc between your computer and your mobile phone.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • A bluetooth enabled cell phone.
  • A computer with either a built in bluetooth module or an external bluetooth dongle.
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/4f/q0/phone-computer-using-blue-tooth-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Bluetooth Dongle

    Ifyour computer does not come equipped with a built in bluetooth module,you'll need to purchase a bluetooth dongle. These can be picked uponline or in a retail store and average between $10 and $30.

  2. Plugthe bluetooth dongle into your computer or if your computer is equippedwith an internal module, activate it (this is sometimes accomplished bya switch on the side of your notebook computer).

    Some bluetoothdongles will be automatically recognized and windows will automaticallyinstall the drivers for you; however some devices may require thedrivers be installed manually.

    Now you'll need to activatebluetooth discovery on your computer. This step may be differentdepending on the drivers used but should be similar to the following.

    * Look for the bluetooth icon in the windows system tray.

    * Right-click this icon and select open bluetooth settings.

    * Click on the Options tab and select "Turn discovery on".

  3. Activateand configure bluetooth on your cell phone. Setup will be differentdepending upon the brand of your phone. You will need to refer to theowners manual of your particular phone for specifics but I will covergeneral guidelines.

    * Locate the bluetooth settings menu in your phone.

    * Turn bluetooth ON.

    *Give your phone a name (you can use anything you like, but keep in mindthat other bluetooth users can see this name) this is the name thatwill identify your phone when you or others are searching for nearbybluetooth devices.

    * Set your bluetooth visibility. This shouldbe set to "shown to all" or "visible". You may wish to turn thisfeature off when you are not utilizing bluetooth.

  4. Now you'll need to pair your phone and your PC. This can be done from either the phone or the PC.

    From the PC (Windows XP):

    * Right click on the bluetooth icon in the system tray and select open bluetooth settings.

    * At the bottom of the devices tab, select "Add"

    * The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard appears, select "My device is setup and ready to be found" and click the Next button.

    * The wizard should find your device, if it doesn't, refer back to step three.

    * Select your device and click Next.

    *When prompted about a passkey, choose "Let me choose my own passkey",enter a passkey of your choosing (I like to use 0000 for ease butwindows recommends an 8-16 digit passkey). Click Next.

    * At thispoint the computer will attempt to connect to the phone via bluetoothand if successful your phone will prompt you for a passkey. Enter thesame passkey you entered into the computer and press OK.

    * If you are prompted to accept a connection request from your computer, select Yes.

  5. Nowthat your phone is paired with your computer, you are now ready tobegin transferring files. We will use a picture for this example.

    *Right click on the bluetooth icon in the Windows system tray and selectreceive a file. This lets your computer know to expect a file transferfrom a bluetooth device.

    * Again all phone models are different so this next step will vary.
    Locate an image file on your cell phone and select send - via bluetooth.

    * The phone will then search for bluetooth devices in range and display them along with already paired devices.

    * Select your computer from the list of devices.

    *The data file will transfer over to the computer and windows willprompt you to enter a file name and choose a location to save the fileto.

    * Thats it!!!

Tips & Warnings
  • Allmobile phones are different and some bluetooth drivers are different.Refer to your phone's owners manual for specific phone settings.
  • It is sometimes a good idea to turn off bluetooth on your phone when in crowded areas for security reasons

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!

Once the Socketcom Bluetooth card is inserted in the Toshiba Pocket e570 PC and the software has been loaded, the following instructions will set up the Toshiba PDA & Ericsson T39 mobile phone to connect to the Internet. Click on the Bluetooth icon in the bottom right hand corner. Click on Get Connected! Select the device under My Bluetooth phone is: In this case the Ericsson T39. The following information gives details on how to change the name of the Mobile device. Once this has been read, click on Next. The phone now has to be made discoverable so that the PDA will detect it. To do this, use the down arrow on the phone to select Extras and then click on Yes. Scroll down to Bluetooth and Click on Yes. Select Make Discoverable and a message on the phone will appear saying that the phone is discoverable for the next 3 minutes. Click on Next on the PDA. The PDA will now look for a Bluetooth device(s). Once the mobile is detected the PDA will search for the Device Name of the mobile. Click on Select and the devices will not connect and create a partnership. The following Device Bonding window should appear to create a bond between the PDA and phone. Click on Next. To create the bond a passkey must be entered on the PDA. This may be a between a 4-16 digit code. N.B. We would advise that the code be kept to a numeric sequence as the keys contain more than one letter on them, i.e. for the letter L, the number 5 key will need to be depressed 3 times. Once the passkey is entered, click on the Reply button. On the mobile, click on Yes to accept the incoming pass and then enter the same passkey. Click on Yes again to confirm. If the two values are correct, a message will appear on the phone telling you that the devices are bonded. The PDA should now congratulate you on your connection. For Internet access via Bluetooth, please follow the steps outlined below. The above instructions only need to be carried out each time a connection is required. However, the instructions below only need to be setup once. Click on Start, then Settings from the drop down menu. Click on the Connections tab at the bottom of the screen followed by the Connections icon utility. In the first drop box labelled "When needed automatically connect to The Internet using these settings" select New. Under the General tab you will be prompted to give the new connection a name, e.g. Bluetooth. Select the modem "Bluetooth Phone" and click on Next Make sure that the fields for the boxes titled Country code and Area code, are empty. The next field requires the full telephone number, including STD code, you wish to dial, i.e. your ISP telephone number. Put this in and click on Next. The next page contains a time out clause if the PDA is unable to connect within a set time. By default this should be 120 seconds. Make sure the tick box for "Wait befo
