iMac G5 Bluetooth Issue

Hey everyone. I've got an iMac G5, with the specs being in my signature. At the moment, my bluetooth module has gone totally bust. Finder is saying that there is no bluetooh hardware available. I've done a hardware test, reparired permissions, reset the SMU, opened up my computer and unglugged and plugged the bluetooth module with no sign of it going to work. So I was wondering:

1. Has anyone had this problem before and had a solution?

and

2. Can anyone reccomend any USB bluetooh dongles (hate that word) that I can buy in Australia? I don't want to spend a fortune, with my measly 16 year old budget. :P

Thanks in advance.

SMILE!

mmmm. I'm not sure what to do at the moment. I'll leave it for a bit and then see how much I miss using bluetooth with my computer and phone. I want to get a cheap one. You know what it's like being so young. I'd love to get a new mac in 1 and half years if my iMac still runs without problems. Ebay is probably a good place to look. Thanks for your help!
