How to support Multi-Bluetooth adapter on one computer?
« on: July 04, 2009, 11:43:38 AM »
English is very poor, please forgive me!

   How to support multi the same type of Bluetooth adapter plugged on one computer(example: Three Bluetooth adapter)?
   when plugged more than one, the computer can only detect one. What can I do,then the computer can find all bluetooth adapter? In addition, if we need to use more than one Bluetooth adapter, using several TwclProximitySender (WCL_Personal_VCL_6.5.10.0), what can we do for the Multi-threaded can avoid conflict in the send process?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

you have to install different bluetooth driver for each bt dongle. For example: one dongle with MS, other one with BS and so long.
You do not need to use multi threading because WCL is completly asynchronous.

I have installed 2 driver, MS and BS.
But using MS driver occurs error.
In BluetoothDiscoveryDemo.exe, I have selected Microsoft radio and click "Disc. ON" button, then it shows "Internal driver error!".
but no BS radio.

What's wrong?

Thanks a lot.

It may appear if you use 2 identical BT dongles. Then Windows mixing up drivers. You have to play with it a littl ebit to tell windows which dongle should use MS and which BS.

Unfortunately there is no common recomendations. Just try to plug one. Install one driver, then plug other and change its driver to second one.

I have followed you, but same as.
Is it possible using 2 identical BT dongles with different driver?

Thanks a lot.

Yes, It is possible but it's not good idea. It's better to use different models.
