Hello, I decided to buy a BlueTooth adapter for my desktop so I got the D-Link-120 2.0 USB Adapter and I installed it. Seems like that part works fine.
I see that there are two ways to approach BlueTooth setup, from the Curve or from the computer itself. I have tried both ways repeatedly and it always fails near the last step.
The BlueTooth Manager "sees" the "Blackberry 8310" so I since that's the only thing highlighted, I click "Next"
Then, on the BB, it prompts me for the "numeric passkey" for "My Computer", (where "My Computer" is the actual name of my computer). I assume it means the password my computer needs to startup which is not a number so I hit the "Enter" key or the trackball on the BB and it switches to "Enter alphanumeric Passkey for My Computer"
I put that in and the BB says, "Waiting for (My Computer)" but, on the csreen of my computer, a box pops up asking for the "Bluethooth Passkey (PIN)" which I can only assume is the PIN of my BB.
Each time I enter that, that's when it says "connection failed"
I've done it half a dozen times now and since the def of insanity is doing the same thing expecting a different result, I need some ideas to do something different.
