    Great Instructions to get Belkin Bluetooth to work for Synch

    Advertisement



    These instructions helped me get my Belkin F8T012 bluetooth dongle working on Windows XP SP2 using the MS Stack. I can now wirelessly synch my 8100 pearl to my PC.

    (note original instruction had graphics, but you can probably manage without them... it you really need them PM me with your email addr)

    All worked well for me but I guess the disclaimer is that you proceed at your own risk.

    DO NOT install the Belkin software, as this will install the widcomm drivers (not supported by the MS Stack and 32feet).

    Plug in the dongle into a spare USB device.

    When windows asks for the driver just cancel out of this.



    Then go to Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware tab, click Device Manager:

    You should see something like this:


    Click right mouse, select properties, Details tab, select Hardware Ids from the dropdown:


    Make a note of the second value (in my case):

    USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0012

    Then go to:

    C:\Windows\inf\bth.inf

    And look for the following lines:

    ;------------- Device section - Start -----------------------

    [ALPS.NT.5.1]
    ALPS Integrated Bluetooth Device= BthUsb, USB\Vid_044e&Pid_3005
    Alps Bluetooth USB Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_044e&Pid_3006

    [Belkin.NT.5.1]
    Belkin Bluetooth Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0081
    Belkin Bluetooth Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0084

    Copy one of the lines above and add your Pid (step from above). Should look something like this:

    ;------------- Device section - Start -----------------------

    [ALPS.NT.5.1]
    ALPS Integrated Bluetooth Device= BthUsb, USB\Vid_044e&Pid_3005
    Alps Bluetooth USB Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_044e&Pid_3006

    [Belkin.NT.5.1]
    Belkin Bluetooth Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0081
    Belkin Bluetooth Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0084
    Belkin Bluetooth Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_050d&Pid_0121

    Not sure what happens if you follow these steps for a device that does not have a device by the same company!

    Save and close

    Uninstall the unknown USB device in Device Manager.

    Remove the USB dongle and then plug it back in.

    You will see the “Found New Hardware Wizard” dialog again, but this time select “No, not this time” and then click next.

    Then select Advance and next:

    Then select “Don’t Search” and Next:

    Then select “Belkin Bluetooth Adapter” (this is the link to the inf file) and click next:

    This will install the driver supported for XP SP2:


    Click finish:

    Windows has now installed the dongle but it will also find a Microsoft Bluetooth adapter.

    You will have to repeat the above again for this.

    You should now get the Bluetooth Devices icon in your Control Panel.

    Internet Lost

    I followed these instructions as carefully as I could and they indeed did work. I was able, after many failed attempts, to sync my BB 8830 to my XP-SP2 desktop machine. The problem is when I got Bluetooth connected I lost my connectivity to the internet. One by one I have eliminated all other causes for this. It seems clearly related to the installation of the Belkin F8T012. Has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone been able to solve this problem?
