    Question Lenovo T61 / Vista / blackberry used as bluetooth modem

    Advertisement



    Hi there everyone,

    I have found overs differents forums that I am not the only one that have problem using my blackberry as a bluetooth modem with my lenovo T61 with Vista.

    Here is somes details of my setup

    Lenovo T61 with integrated bluetooth runing Vista Buisness with all latest windows update
    all latest drivers from Lenovo
    Blackberry 8830 from Bell mobility with adequate IT policy that should me let use the blackberry as a bluetooth modem.
    I got numbers of laptop with same model, and I got several blackberrys to try stuff... I'm also admin on a BES.

    Before writting this thread, a couple of support ticket have been open with RIM and Lenovo all without success. In somes case, RIM refered to Lenovo, and of course, Lenovo refered to RIM, none of them wanted to speak to each other. One funny thing, my RIM rep's told me they all have T61 as regular laptop.

    I've already offered RIM to have my laptop ship to their support, and they don't want to... they finaly refered me to Microsoft (Duh)

    Here is my bluetooth services listed on my 8830:
    Headset
    Handsfree
    Desktop Connectivity
    Wireless Bypass
    Dial-up Networking
    Audio Source
    A/V Remote Control Target


    Here is my bluetooth services listed on my 8830 for the pairing with the computer: (somes in french , but useless to our problem sorry)
    Audio gateway
    Casque
    Audio Gateway
    Transfer d'éléments du gestionnaire d'informations personnelles
    A/V Remote Control Target
    Audio Sink


    I am able to sync my laptop with my 8830 over bluetooth, it works

    I am able to use my blackberry as a modem to go on the internet with a USB cable

    the thing that don't work, and in fact that don't appear anywhere is the modem "modem over bluetooth"

    I got 2 devices in my Device Manager that are classified

    what I want is to use the 8830 as a bluetooth modem with my Lenovo T61 with VISTA

    one very interesting page is this one :
    Uncrippling Bluetooth in Vista RTM | Dev-Toast

    they ask for Device ID that should look like this:
    USB\VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX

    and my result of devices ID are :
    BTHENUM\{426c6163-6b-42-6572-7279-427970617373}_LOCALMFG&000f
    BTHENUM\{426c6163-6b-42-6572-7279-44736b746f70}_LOCALMFG&000f


    to solve my problem, I *think* (RIM think that also) I need the driver call Modem over bluetooth or something like that.

    anyone can help?

    have you tried using the bluetooth to teather with a plain old bt phone? the t61 could have crippled built in bt software or maybe you coud try to reinstall/update the bt drivers on it???

    our main problem is, we don't have bluetooth modem driver listed into the modem part of control panel

    without this, we can't so further

    Please help me understand, when I try to install bluetooth so I can sync my 8130 with Desktop Manager, it seems to work but I get an error message from Windows that it cannot find a device driver and that if I select to not remind of this again, my device will not work. Then my device doesn't work with Desktop Manager. I follow the instructions exactly to set this up but I keep getting the same error. I am SO frustrated. I cannot find any reference to this anywhere. BTW I have a Lenovo T61P running Vista Ultimate with integrated Bluetooth. It runs the Windows bluetooth system.

    even with PAID support with lenovo, they were no help...

    even with PAID support with RIM, they were no help...

    the only way I've found to solve this is to order a new CD set of winxp for my t61...

    hope this help
