    Hello,

    just purchased a belkin dongle, upgraded driver to vistas from their website. computer continues to indicate "no local bluetooth device found". configurations have been reviewed and altered so computer will recognize dongle. when dongle is initially plugged in to USB, it lights up and then stops. Please advise. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.:)

    last message got cut off by my 3 year old...belkin bluetooth dongle F8T013. device manager says it's working properly but the computer does not identify that it is in the USB port connected. continues to state "turn it on" or "plug it in"

    thanks again for your assistance!

    Did it come with a driver disk? Most come with either Blue Soleil or Widcomm drivers if they're not XP compatible. I have a couple of each.
