RE: Microsoft Bluetooth Transceiver
MS Transceiver v 3.0 does work with other devices as well.
What you need to do is open the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel, click
the Wireless Tab and click Connect... after your Mouse is discovered, the
Intellipoint software will enable the Bluetooth stack and look for Bluetooth
- devices. If your mouse is discovered again as a Bluetooth device and if
drivers are found and installed within the next 5 min. or so, Intellipoint
will leave, the Bluetooth stack enabled and you will be able to connect your
mouse and other Bluetooth devices at the same time.
In my case, Intellipoint was not able to find and install the drivers so I
opened the Device Manager at the same time and installed the drivers
manually, as soon as the new Bluetooth devices were discovered.
hope this helps, Franz
