Hi, i have searche the forums and can find a few references to: Linksys Bluetooth USB Adapter - USBBT100
However, I was wondering if anyone had any advice/tips on the qualities of different bluetooth adapters?
Forexample, the aircrack-ng documents have loads of great info on which is the best wirelss card to buy...[i have opted for the Proxim WD8470], I am looking for much the same thing but for BLUETOOTH adapters.
Or should i just skipp all that and go for the Linksys Bluetooth USB Adapter - USBBT100?
Well, i didn't really have any problems with any of maybe ten or so different bluetooth usb adapters i have tried.There were always a couple of issues i had in mind when testing the adapters.First, the signal range.Second, the data exchange rate.Third, security.

The window is approx. 9 meters away from my laptop.The best signal and data rates contest winner was D-Link DBT-122 (price:20 euro).It works well with all of the bluetooth software in BT2.In addition, DBT-122 is small, have 128-bit data encryption, and, if anyone cares, works within VMWare 6 as well.
So finally, my suggestion would be: don't buy anything yet, google, try as much adapters as you can-borrow them from friends or whatever-, find the one that best suits your needs.Then decide.

1) compatible with BlueZ stack
2) CSR chipset with BlueCore4
3) using externalflash (for later firmware upgrade)(if necessary)
