    Hi All

    I have a PCi bluetooth dongle (http://www.planex.net/product/bluetooth/gwbh02u.shtml) that I have been using successfully on my old G3 iMac 600 at home for the last two years.

    I recently bought a new Powerbook (with built in BT) as my new home machine and so decided to bluetooth up my computer at work (PM G4 400 AGP Graphics) by adding the USB dongle to it. The dongle lights up (so it's getting power) but doesn't appear to be recognised by the PowerMac (no bluetooth preference pane etc) although it still works perfectly on the iMac.

    Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Is there some system requirement for bluetooth that my work machine doesn't meet? All my machines are running up to date Panther, with up to date bluetooth software...
