I just found these Bluetooth dongles at a local Staples. The only store in town that carries any bluetooth adapters.
Kensington Bluetooth USB adapter 2.0
I bought 2 of these, one for my PC & one for my Zaurus.
I installed the windows XP software and got the software to recognize my Zaurus, and my Palm. (Palm has built-in BT)
The software is Widcomm Bluetooth

I can't get either one of them to connect. (Zaurus or Palm)
I won't get into my Palm connection probs here, but the Zaurus should connect.
I read the OESF pages on Bluetooth. Some of the info is for older models/ROMs
I have Cacko 1.23 lite on a SL-C3100
I also read several threads in the forum here and a Bluetooth PAN website linked from OESF's Bluetooth howto.
In 'Network' on settings tab, I tried setting up 'Bluetooth PPP', and 'Bluetooth PAN - TCP/IP'
Neither of these work, I made all the settings, and Paired them with "1234"
How do I find what chipset I'm using?
In my bluetooth.conf, there is no entry for Kensington
What do I need to enter in here if my model isn't shown?
I really don't want to take these back, and I'm always a nervious wreck when mail ordering stuff.
That's why I prefer to buy things locally.
Any help would be appreciated.
Just a command like "cardctl status" (for USB dongles, would be helpful)
I really need to know what the chipset is so I can research these further.
