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!

If you have access to the Internet using a LAN cable, then download the Netgear wireless USB adapter to install the driver. After downloading you can remove the LAN cable.
You can also save the driver from your laptop to an USB memory stick and then install the driver in your computer with the USB memory stick.

Hi there... Iogear Bluetooth micro adapter 2.1 for USB port, software installed... After inserting the adapter, laptop freezes.


What is the operating system of your computer? Can you tell me the exact model number of your Bluetooth Adapter (it usually starts with GBU)?

Check the link below, and see the system requirements:

http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/

You need to check also the system type of your computer (32 or 64-bit OS). Some IOGEAR devices could only support 32-bit OS. If you are running 64-bit OS, that could cause the problem.

Try to uninstall the Bluetooth driver. Reboot the computer, then reload the installation disk that came with it. Once the hardware wizard ask you to plug the device it, just continue the installation, BUT DO NOT plug the device.

After the installation is done, reboot the computer again, the PLUG the device in WHILE the computer is shutting down. Once the computer comes back up, then it should install the other necessary driver. And that should work.

Good luck!

I reinstalled Vista Home Premium on my wife's Gateway laptop, but can't connect wirelessly to the router. Windows can't find the adapter (it's built in).


As you re-installed vista, you probably need to load the drivers , sometimes these are supplied as a seperate CD or you can go onto the manufacturers website and download onto a working PC and then using USB thumbdrive or write to a CD copy to the faulty machine
as we do not know the exact model i can only direct you to the support site http://support.gateway.com/support/default.aspx if you put your serial number into this site - should show you all the drivers required

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.

NO INTERNET CONNECTION


Have you tried to reinstall the device driver? Then check the network settings and see if the device is loaded. If you still cannot get the device to work, unplug it and restart your computer. Once reloaded replug in your device and system will recognize the device and load the drivers if they are on system already, if not it will ask fir the driver cd to be loaded.

Bluetooth iogear adapter


My Toshiba Laptop was setup to create automatic "System Restore Points"...I simply went back to the system restore point one day prior to installing the Iogear Bluetooth software: (my computer>accessories>toshiba tools>system restore).
I now have my Windows XP Welcome Screen back - -any changes or program installations I've made after the restore date will need to be reinstalled or reapplied, but I didn't have much on the laptop anyway, since I had just got it!
I would suggest backing up any files or data you may want to save before doing the system restore on any computer (maybe on a flashdrive or sd card, someplace other than the harddrive - then you can select what you want to install - excluding the culprit that caused you the problem). The system restore option will backup certain system files - notifying you of the new filenames after the restore has completed.
If the system restore process doesn't work, you do have the option of 'going back' to the last system settings, or trying another 'System Restore Point'.
If any desktop or laptop pc has a 'System Restore' option, I highly recommend turning this feature on....it may prevent a lot of headaches and problems!
One suggestion - BACKUP your system somewhere before making any major changes to your system...especially before installing new applications, or even before changing your system profiles or connectivity options...so many things can't easily be 'undone' !
