Just picked this up today. It is a bluetooth dongle that plugs and plays. It is a class 2 device so works up to 100metres. Deal Extreme also sell these but you have to wait ages for them to deliver.

They also have Wifi dongles for a quid too! I picked up one of each and they both work pretty well.
You cant go wrong for £1.

nothing wrong with the speed on mine, working great here

good price

Great price but anything less than quite a few years old will have Bluetooth and Wifi inbuilt (or it jollywell should) so a limited audience. I'd get one if there was a Poundland near me purely as a backup.

Gone mine as well. Fell apart a bit, but speed and transmission, plug and play was fine.
What can you expect for price of a lollipop?

Poundland have sold these for ages. Not seen any Wi-Fi dongles though...?

I've seen these bluetooth dongles there but are you quite sure that they have wi-fi dongles as well in Poundland????
#11
Bought one, didnt work, bought another, fine. I believe other members on here on another thread had the same problems. Still for £2 was a bargain

I bought one of these a while back and use it to transfer stuff to and fro from my phone and back up messages and stuff. Worked absolutely perfect and a hell of a lot better than using the old USB cable I had.

Bluetooth 1,2 or 3?
#14
Bought 2 last month, work fine and use the native windows Bluetooth stack (no need for drivers), it's worth sticking one in your PC just in case you want to sync while sat at your desk, saves on messy cables :)

Wifi yes, but bluetooth is by no means standard on laptops. My 18 month old Dell doesn't have it (Studio - so not the basic one) and I'd go as far as to say most laptops being produced even now don't have bluetooth. Definitely so for low-mid range anyway.

That depends upon whatever device you are pairing. Any fixed passcode should be on a label on the device or in the instructions accompanying it. The default tends to be 0000 or sometimes 1234. You could try either of those. If none is given, then any number will do or sometimes you can get away with bypassing a pairing code.

Hiya

Please be aware there's a reason why these are cheap! As I've just discovered, these all have the same "MAC address" as eachother.

Explanation: A "MAC address" is a kind of numeric "name" for the device. Every single dongle should have its own "MAC address" (it's own "name") so that it can be identified individually, by any other bluetooth device.

These, however, rather than having individual names, are all identical "clones" of eachother - that means if you give you mobile permission for the computer to connect (or to "pair up"), you're giving permission for anyone else with the same dongle to connect (or "pair up") too!

So there's a potential security concern to using these. Certainly don't use them for anything important, and definitely DON'T make the connections "authorised".

Additionally, be ready for problems if you have more than one of these within a few tens of metres of each other .... because no other bluetooth devices can tell the difference between the two of them, they all get very confused, and the communication goes chaotic!

Going to keep mine unplugged now except when I actually have to use it.

such a low price for a USB

i bought one of these from deal extreme and it worked ok but the device manager on windows 7 had 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'

I followed this web page and it now works perfectly

I bought one of these last time they were in poundland.
I've got it plugged into my HP Photosmart 355's USB port. HP wanted nearly £30 to Bluetooth enable this printer. This little beaury works perfectly. I can print wirelessly direct from my Android phone and via Bluetooth on my laptop.
Simply fantastic for the money.
