Pretec Bluetooth Card Recognized But Can't Work
« on: December 04, 2006, 12:15:44 pm »
My bluetooth card for SL5500 is pretec BT 2000E(CF stocket). The problem is that when I insert it into the stocket, it can be recognized.

But when I use the command "hcitool dev" to check the MAC address, there is no devics.

I had put the bt950_cs.o into the correct path. and reboot the machine again and again. It still doesn't work.

Can some one give me some hits?


my situation is similar with the article describe before, but using this method still can't solve my problem.

hm, well, your card looks like it's working.


I've been looking at my config files in /etc/pcmcia and /etc/hotplug and can't find anything that seems to match.

My guess is that you should be able to hack an entry into your /etc/pcmcia/serial.conf to bind a serial device to it... something like

card "Pretec BT2000E Bluetooth PC/CF Card"
    manfid: 0x022d, 0x2000
    bind "serial_cs"

eject the card and "HUP" the cardmanager (or reboot).

sorry, that's my best guess.

might be worth asking in the security and networking forum too, as this is a generic hardware/config problem and not necessarily 5000 specific

In my machine there is no /etc/pcmcia/serial.conf but only /etc/pcmcia/bluetooth.conf and in bluetooth.conf I found some similar link

device "bt950_cs"
  class "bluetooth" module "bt950_cs"

card "Pretec BT2000E Bluetooth Card"
  version "Pretec", "BT2000E"
  bind "bt950_cs"

there is no specified like manfid: 0x022d, 0x2000. Do I need to tell the machine this, but which file I should add this line. in bluetooth.conf, there no similar line exit for other brand bluetooth card.

try then putting my config snippet into your bluetooth.conf file (after taking a backup!) and see if that works.
