What are USB ports?
All current computers now sold have generally at least two
USB ports. Many devices today use USB ports, for
example, mouse, keyboards, digital cameras, web
cameras etc... Hence you need to check if your USB ports Fig 2.2 USB Port
have all been used up by these devices.
The diagram is a USB port (about 1.2cm wide) and the
Logo associated with the port.
Fig 2.3 USB Logo
Where are my USB ports?
Desktop Computers.
They are usually two USB ports next to the PS2 mouse(green round connector)
and keyboard (purple round connector) ports (refer to Figure 2.1).
Some desktops have two or more on one of the metal parallel plates below the
monitor, keyboard, mouse,printer connections.
Laptop/Notebook Computer.
These vary and can be on the back or on the sides of the unit. Certain models
have them vertically directly next to each other.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the WIDCOMM software that I am installing?
Many Bluetooth Adaptors use the WIDCOMM software to work with the adaptor
and connect with other Bluetooth devices.
The Bluetooth Device that I am connecting to has the same device name.
You may change the device name of your device (See page 25).
When I search, devices appear that I do not recognizes.
Because Bluetooth has a range that could possibility exceed the area you are
in, you will detect devices beyond those that you are seeking. For example
people passing by, however, this does not necessarily mean you will be able to
access their device without their permission.
Is my data encrypted?
Data transferred between Bluetooth device can be set to enable secure
connection. Secure connections are encrypted using the PIN. You can enable
or disable secure connections by going to Local Services and selecting the
property of the service you wish to secure. (See page 20).
My Bluetooth connection drops out when I use my cordless phone.
Bluetooth uses the 2.4Ghz unlicensed ISM band, which is the same as some
high end cordless phones, video transmitters, and some other wireless devices.
Even though Bluetooth uses freqency hopping to prevent interference with
these devices, at times it may interfere.
My Bluetooth Device requires a PIN, and I do not think it has one.
Some Bluetooth device (for example headsets) are set to a default PIN 0000.
My computer does not detect the USB Bluetooth Adaptor.
You may need to get a technician to make sure your USB port drivers are
I n s ta l l at i o n 0 0 5
installed correctly.
