I sent it back and got a refund, which I put towards the Sitecom CN502 which is excellent! Now I have bluetooth connection throughout the house and into the garden. I haven't bothered to test the straight line range as it's good enough for all I want.
Save yourself the trouble of sending this junk back for a refund - don't buy it!
But the software is clunky and buggy. Setting up worked okay, but I found that sharing an internet connection (with Pocket PC 2003) did not work. In the end I had to download the latest drivers to get this working on XP Home. Even then, you need to manually enable internet connection sharing, which is a fiddle for people who don't like poking about in the control panel. I could never get internet connection sharing working with Windows 2000, which is a pity since that's one of the reasons I bought the device.
Another problem is that the device does not work properly when you suspend your computer. You have to manually stop and start the device to get it working again. This is just poor.
If you want cheap and cheerful Bluetooth get this, but beware of its problems.
Does the bare basics but may drive you mad trying to get it working properly.
Have returned it for refund.
