Got my Kensington USB/Bluetooh adapter and installed the driver on my XP laptop. Everything looked normal during the sinta
I have my Connex 400 XM bluetooth plugged into a robostix so I can use a "wall-wart" to provide power. I see the green LED light on the Robostix when I plug the wall wart.
Unfortunately, when I try to "View devices in range", XP tries for several seconds and says "Search for devices complete; no devices found". When it's trying to discover BT devices, a LED on the adapter flashes, so I know XP is communicating to the devices.
On the "Discovery" tab in XP, I have "Report All Bluetooth Devices" checked, so all classes and types of BT devices should be discovered.
Shouldn't this work? Any hints on what to try next?
I'm a newbie.

I have a Kensington USB bluetooth adapter plugged into the USB port of my windows XP laptop. Installation of the adapter seemed normal.
When I try to discover devices using "view devices in range", the led flashes on the USB/BT adapter and XP returns saying there were no devices found. I'm using "My Bluetooth Places" and have checked the box that says to search for all types and classes of devices.
From Jake's response to my previous append (as thomasdr@...) I thought this should work. Should it? Any suggestions on what I should try next?
I was hoping to avoid the hassle of having to build a level shifter and solder to the Robostix card to get a UART interface into the gumstix, but that's the only thing I can think of to try next.
Yes, the rubber duck antenna is plugged into the connex.
I don't have to jumper anything on the Robostix to get power routed to the gumstix, do I?
Also, what's the process for returning the gumstix if the hardware is bad?

Yes, that should work. Is the bluetooth antenna plugged in?
(I wasted 15-20 minutes fiddling with com port settings last night
before I realized...)
