The laptop I have is running Windows 7 Home, but has no bluetooth on-board so I bought a cheap £2 dongle from eBay - but that was fraught with danger - not supplied with drivers, and Windows automatic installation couldn't find any for it, either.

When I finally got drivers, and the thing working, the connections were all over the place - dropping out for no reason whatsoever.

This Belkin adapter answered those problems - not a single drop-out since installation - and installation is a doddle with the enclosed CD of software and drivers.

I am using this to connect to Logitech Wireless Speaker Adaptor for Bluetooth Audio Devices and also Philips SHB9100/00 Bluetooth Stereo Headset - Black/White - both work fine, no issues at all !

Arrived right on time with an ordered pair of bluetooth headphones (Philips SHB9100/00 Bluetooth Stereo Headset - Black/White) which works great with it.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, and once the driver disc was inserted it installed no problem.

There is a slight issue with Windows 7 Bluetooth drivers however. You may, as i needed to, perform the following steps in order to 'Add a Device' via bluetooth (otherwise no bluetooth devices can be found).

1: Click start and type "services.msc" in the search box
2: Run 'services.msc'
3: Scroll down the 'Names' until you find 'Bluetooth Support Service', right click this service and select 'Properties'
4: Set 'Startup type' to 'Automatic'
5: Click 'Ok'

This should let you add devices over bluetooth. Hope it saved you some time googling all the help sites.

Works very well with linux (debian wheezy) but I needed to manually create a udev rule that will run two commands when the adapter is inserted/detected:

As root:
1) Create the file:
/etc/udev/rules.d/99-local-bluetooth.rules

2) Add the following line to the file:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="050d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="065a", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'modprobe btusb; echo 050d 065a > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id'"

3) To pick up the change
either
Restart the udev service:
/etc/init.d/udev restart
or
reboot

Worked fine and connected the first day. Will not detect any devices at all after that.

Belkin states that it should be plug and play (no additional drivers) for Windows 7 but this is not the case.

It wouldn't recognize it at all until I installed drivers from the site.

Click on Finder. Then on the menu bar go to Go —> Go to Folder…
Locate a file named: IOBluetoothFamily.kext
Copy this file to another location, like the Desktop.
Ctrl+click on IOBluetoothFamily.kext and click on Show Package Contents image
Navigate to Contents —> PlugIns
You will find another .kext file named: BroadcomBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport.kext
Again Ctrl+click and click on Show Package Contents
Navigate to the Contents folder and you will see a file named Info.plist
Open the Info.plist file with your favourite text editor like Text Edit or Sublime Text
Scroll down the content of the file until you see: <key>Microsoft Bluetooth 2.0 USB Dongle</key>
Add a new entry by copying and pasting the text starting in line 14 up to the end, just after the Microsoft Bluetooth 2.0 USB Dongle entry.

This product is nice and small, but the lack of drivers and support really lets this unit down.

The adapter is nice and small and sits nicely in the back of the laptop without sticking out too much, but when it comes to using it , the software support seems to be not there.

I have installed drivers recommended and ones from the belkin website, but after a reboot it always seems to forget the settings and I have to uninstall and try again. I don't have this issue with other usb devices and drivers so I can only assume it this product.

Got this adaptor to replace my USB 2.0. Got working no problem using the disc provided.

The 3* rating is that after a week it now disconcerts quite frequently,so I have to disconnect the adaptor to reboot.

The devices I am using are Medion Bluetooth mouse, Jabra BT7020 ear piece and Samsung Galaxy ace 2.

I am using windows 7 home premium on Toshiba 64 bit op syst.

Other reviewers don't seem to have this problem.
