Bluetooth keyboard

Hi guy's,

I bought my self a Bluetooth keyboard to use and I went and checked windows software for the Bluetooth and downloaded it but it still cannot find it.
My question is. Don't I have to have some in my USB so that the keyboard will work. I only have the board nothing other than that.
If I have to buy the Bluetooth the USB bit so it will work???
Regards
John

Hello John, Welcome to SevenForums

Unless your system has a built in BlueTooth Radio, (Check the specs on your Motherboard, It may be there but need activating), you will need to purchase a BLueTooth USB adaptor.

One bit of advice I would give is that there are many low quality BT Dongles out there - If you want to avoid problems down the line, go for one of the known makes

Hi Barman,

Thank you for the info. I sure will look for a good brand. But first check if this mother board has the Bluetooth chip I suppose they call it.
Thanks again and take care.

Just one other question. would this be the right one to buy as I don't what one to buy. I asked one of the computer sellers in Sydney and they sent me info about this one. Bluetooth adapter: 141017393230 which is on ebay.com.au

It seems to be well supported by Asus and comes with a full set of drivers from the look of the package.

There is some conflicting commentary here .... Windows 7 compatibility for Asus USB-BT211 Mini Bluetooth Adapter model that you may want to read before proceeding though MS doues class it as compatable with windows 7
