    Default Bluetooth adapter not found

    Hi, I'm pretty new to BT, at the moment I want to get my bluetooth adapter working (it's an internal adapter of my notebook ibm z60m). I activated it in my BIOS setup, but when I boot BT and type hciconfig it doesn't appear at all (actually nothing at all apprear in my console screen afterwards). Do I have to do any other steps prior to that?
    When I type
    lsusb
    my bluetooth adapter is not listed. What do I have to for the adapter being recognized by BT?

    Try this
    Code:
    hciconfig hci0 up
    "lsusb" reports USB devices and isn't likely to see your integrated Bluetooth adapter.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Code:
    hcitool scan
    see if it finds anything
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    what does cat /proc/bus/usb/devices tell you?
    dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze

    Are you sure you have integrated bluetooth?

    I have this same internal bluetooth. It reports on two different brand notebooks for me. Not real sure why it is so hit and miss for different people.

    Absolutely. It works just fine with a bluetooth mouse in Vista.
