Bluetooth-question: why are certain devices never shown as paired?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Michael Moser, Jan 28, 2009.

  1. I have a second Windows computer (a tablet PC). When I set up a
    bluetooth connection between the two, I have to enter the same key on
    both ends and the BT SW tell me, that the two are now "securely
    connected". But why is that (and only that) device not marked with a red
    checkmark (as is normally the case with paired devices)?

    And - probably due to the same reason - I always have to go through this
    connection procedure again each time I want to connect. Why does XP not
    memorize that device as paired and well-known (as it does with others -
    e.g. my headphone and my PDA)?

    Which Bluetooth protocol stack are you using? Microsoft's XP SP2
    built-in Bluetooth protocol is extremely limited. It does mainly BT
    modem and PAN connections.
