    I've been using a bluethooth headset with Skype, using Blue Soleil as the
    software. It cut out mid-conversation with a message saying it was only good
    for 5mb of data. Rather than buy Bluesoleil I thought I'd try the Windows XP
    bluetooth driver but I can't get it to show the bluetooth connection in Skype.

    I've tried two different headsets with the same result. The Windows
    bluetooth drivers can discover the headsets, and show them as paired devices,
    but that's all.

    What do I need to do to get the headset coming up as a choice in the skype
    menu?

    Microsoft's Bluetooth is limited and will not do audio over Bluetooth.
