I am trying to share files between my IPAQ PDA and Toshiba Tecra laptop. The
laptop is on a Wireless LAN link with my Desktop. I installed a BT500
Bluetooth adapter on the laptop (which I had used succesfully prior on my PC)
but could not get the bluetooth working.

I discovered the Toshiba bluetooth stack was inbuilt so i tried using this,
but no joy. i kept getting an error message saying the "bluetooth is not
ready". Finally, I have now installed a Microsoft Bluetooth Monitor which now
sits on my taskbar. I notice the Toshiba bluetooth menu has now disappeared
from the programs start up? The "power" menu on the Microsoft Bluetooth
monitor is greyed out. Also, I can now only share files via infrared wireless
with this.

What am I doing wrong? Help!!

Ah... yes, correct to a point. it is "controlled with out wires" so to
speak. And No, it is not wireless as within the newsgroup ie:radio waves
(802.11a/b/g)...

Though myself, being of technical nature speaks literally upon it, ie:
Infrared=light, I have never seen light as a wireless "radio" device and
hence my literal answer.(and newsgroup listing ).. he was just playing with
words.

Appologies (to the dimmer mortals) I was looking at it from a radio sence
and not the physical one...Cough cough>> check our news group
"microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless"....[most of the postings is
to do with 802.11a/b/g Wireless thats radio waves to most bright peeps].
Even some books are full of dissinformation (missinformation, Factless, with
fault, wrong, etc etc....shout at the authors for not pointing out for the
less technically minded.)

HubSwitch
PS
I dont use a <<<<<torch>>>>> to control my equiptment....


light=photons..??? (you work it out....)
light=fire....??? (a-light.. burning)
light=helium.....??? (a-light.. flying)

Playing with your mind..

In Windows XP Home, the IR link is refered to in the control panel as
"Wireless link". It flummoxed me for a second when I bought my shiney new
laptop equipped, so the blurb said, with an IR link but no built in
wireless. But I am one of those technical bods so I knew it could never be
so.

However - I wouldn't refer to anyone who didn'tt know that already as a
"dimmer mortal". Perhaps a little humilty might serve you well old chap, wot
wot ?
