    I use a 3com bluetooth adapter. Very expensive but I bought it when I was having trouble getting my old Nokia 3650 to connect to my PC. It never did work right with the Nokia but it works wonderfully with the Treo.

    I had a DLINK for my laptop and it worked just fine except It was so small I lost it. I replaced it with a Sitecom PCCard device that fits almost entirely inside the slot. I don't ever take it out. Because it's a Class 1 device and it has an extendable antenna (don't use the antenna much), it is a little better at keeping a connection as I move further away from the phone. If this is for a desktop then I would consider a class 1 and one that has an antenna. BT doesn't like going through objects especially if it sits under a desk or can get lost under a pile of stuff. Also don't expect too much from it. It is SLOWWWW. The IR port is faster for transfers or syncing.

    I use the Belkin Bluetooth™ USB Adapter, 100 meter. I had tried the DLink one (nice size) but it had issues with my Thinkpad T40 Win 2K. Their support mentioned that the one that I had only worked with Macs (based on the MAC address); weird that the packaging mentioned compatible with both.
    One thing to look for though is check that the driver that comes with it supports bluetooth network adapter too.. some of the them don't. Then you can't do Reverse-DUN.

    I bought the D-Link DBT-120. Installing it and running it on Windows 2000 was a snap but Windows XP (service pack 2) was a disaster. First there is the issue that when installing the XP drivers want to kick in so you have to change it over to the D-Link drivers.
    See ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dbt120_...e_winxpsp2.pdf for more detailed information. After 5 calls to tech support I finally got this to work. It worked untill I unplugged it and later put it into a different USB port. At that point it then reverted back to the XP drivers. I have to say I have had nothing but frustration with the D-Link DBT-120 Bluetooth dongle.

    Another vote for the Linksys. I was able to install it and configure reverse dun in about 30 minutes.

    sorry i didnt read this before u went out & bought one...but when buying one (i have a laptop) i look for compact size & price! IT DOESNT MATTER WHO MADE IT! buy the least expensive winXP SP2 will set it up for u. ive used 3 from ebay at $0.99 a pop! & i think somebody's grandmother made it. i havent used a cable in 7 months.

    i even found a BT adapter on the street with a cracked casing & it worked.

    later.

    I'm using the SMC BT10. The software that it comes with is Great, but there's no easy way to send files to the Treo. So I reverted back the windows stack. I can sync, transfer files, but i have never tried the reverse DUN, or standard DUN (I cannot figure out the info for T-Mobile, if anyone knows throw me a bone!)

    Im pretty clueless when it comes to bluetooth transfer speeds, so excuse me if this is a novice question, but i notice the linksys usb adapter ppl have been recommending is usb1.1.

    Can bluetooth transfer at speeds higher than usb1.1? In other words would it ever make sense to make a usb2.0 device or will the transfer always been bottlenecked by bluetooth transfer speeds?

    Thanks!

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but most adapters define their range in "open space" terms, I am assuming they mean without the interference of walls.

    How successful are you syncing from room to room. My home office is about 25ft from my bedroom. Will I be able to sync through walls at a distance of approx. 25-30 ft.?

    Thanks

    Twenty five feet would probably be about the limit. I would say no, but hope for the best.

    BT max speed is 768 kbps, except for new EDR devices (which the Treo 650 is not)

    USB 1.1 is 12 Mbps maximum. Real-world transfer rates are likely only around half that, but still far higher than the Bluetooth maximum rate.
