Hi, I had trouble connecting to a corsa with my Nokia, I Had to try serveral things to get it working. first of all is you phone bluetooth name visible?, is your bluetooth name different from other bluetooth device names stored on the car?
Have you tried a bluetooth search from the car to the phone and from the phone to the car?, did either or both devices ask for a pin number(usually 0000)? If you can offer anymore more infomation that would be great.
Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.
I see that you are having issue with your BT Nokia headset.
You mentioned that you are having issues connecting it to our PC.
You need to make sure that the Bluetooth settings on the computer is set to allow other devices to detect the computer to be able to get your Bluetooth Nokia headset working with your computer.
Look for the Bluetooth icon on the lower right side of the taskbar somewhere near the time then right click on it then select open bluetooth settings, it should open up a window for the Bluetooth on your computer then look for "Allo other devices to detect this computer" and put a check on it, click on Apply or OK, this should make your computer be detected by other BT devices such as your Nokia headset.
Start > Devices & Printers > Add a Printer > Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer > The printer I want isn't listed (unless it is!) > Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname > Device Type = Autodetect / Hostname or IP address: 192.168.XXX.XXX (The 1260's IP assigned by your router - make it a static IP beforehand) / Port name: [the autofill IP is fine] > Additional port information required = Standard "Network Print Server (2 ports - USB)" > Select the driver for the printer you want to use...
Once the install is complete go to the Devices and Printers screen and click on the new printer. Click Customize your Printer, change the name if you prefer and then on the ports tab. Mine is set to Protocol "Raw", Port Number 9100, Community Name "public". The only other thing I may be doing differently is that I have set the printer to auto-show the print preview before printing. Yes, its an additional click but it seemed to have made all the difference in my case. It also gives you the chance to correct something like printing a second page with just a header URL, etc.
I realize that time is a luxury and not everyone has a lot of it, especially for trivial tasks like addressing antiquated equipment compatibility issues after an upgrade, but I firmly believe if you say can't enough, you WON'T. But for those who enjoy a challenge occasionally I hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck
You can connect the printer via USB to a single PC or via Ethernet on a network. Though it doesn't have wireless capability built-in, you could also connect it to a wireless router or a print server for a shared wireless connection.
I understand that you want to use the print server WGPS606 as an access point. Regarding the concern, please note that it is not possible to configure or use this device as AP. This device however can act as as wireless bridge. It can connect wirelessly to the wireless network of your wireless router/ap and provide wired connection.
