There are two versions of that AmbiCom card, which people have had different results with.

What does your bluetooth card look like? It should either have a black, rounded top and no LCD light, or it will be somewhat transparent, purple, and will have a LED that flashes when the card is active. Which card do you have?

Also, which ROM are you using and what bluetooth drivers?

That card should work with the Sharp ROM 3.13 (not 100% sure about the 3.10 ROM), but I would recommend using the Bluez drivers available for download and then searching these forums for some posts (there have been several) regarding how to get the card configured properly.

First, go to this page (you want to use Bluez with that card):

http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php...ename=Bluetooth

Then, search the forums. Good luck - try to read through as much of that as possible to understand the driver configuration, then post any problems that you have along the way--

I bought the same Ambicom CF card last week. After installing all the bluetooth packages I can find, I was able to make the 5500 and my phone (Siemens S56) to recognize each other. However, that's the extent of how far I have gone becasue I can;t even transfer contact information between the two. When I ask the phone to send contact to Z, it says something like "type of device not supported". I don;t even know how to do it the other way round (from Z to phone). I will tinker with it again when I have time.

Don't take offence at this, but have you remembered to start the bluetooth service on the phone?

I didn't take any :-)

Yes, the phone saw a "Zaurus" device. I think they paired-up but won't transfer information.

BTW, anyone know how to trnasfer contact from Z to phone anyway?

Thanks

Sending contacts between your phone and Z requires OBEX, which isn't setup with the BlueZ drivers as yet. It isn't trivial to get working either since there's no Z application to handle sending/receiving of files using OBEX over Bluetooth.

Thanks Tumnus. I guess the only thing I can play w/ is GPRS for now. Can syncing w/ desktop be done through bluetooth?

If you can establish a PPP over Serial Bluetooth connection or a Bluetooth PAN connection to your desktop, you are able to do anything you can with wired/wireless ethernet. So whether you can sync with your desktop over Bluetooth is more down to the ROM you are using and the OS and sync app on your PC.

Has anyone managed to get a working connection with a Tecom BT3021 Bluetooth Access Point?

If I do a search with sdptool, it reports itself as a LAN device with PPP access. The existing Bluetooth connection apps don't seem to support this directly...

My Bluetooth ADSL modem advertises itself as a LAN device using PPP. All it requires is a dialup connection with no login and no number. I don't know if you can create a PPP script like this using the Bluetooth dialup applet (you would need to enter a dummy password to stop it asking for one), but if not you just need to follow the BlueZ Howto for connecting to a PC over PPP and use something like the following for the PPP script in /etc/ppp/peers/ (Replacing rfcomm1 with the rfcomm device you define in rfcomm.conf for your access point)

CODE
/dev/rfcomm1

460800

usepeerdns

defaultroute

idle 0

local

Make sure your phone is set to discoverable and type the following command into the terminal on your Zaurus:

sdptool browse

If that finds nothing, enter the command 'hciconfig' to ensure your card has been recognised.

The configuration of the BlueZ Bluetooth drivers on the Zaurus involves some command line stuff at the moment I'm afraid. I have been working on a GUI, but have had little time for it.

Everything you need to know should be in the howto I wrote though:
http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php...ename=Bluetooth

The Affix Bluetooth drivers have a nice graphical app for discovering other devices and pairing, but the last time I looked at it you had to do some hacks to get the dialing working with the latest ROMs and development on that side seems to have stopped.
