Does anyone have any experience with these.

The first one i got and installled did not seem to work, it shows as working
correctly in device manager but thats it, i assume it should show in the
taskbar like on a laptop.

I have used the wireless link in control panel in xp and the 'display in
taskbar when infrared activity is detected' is checked but no signs of life.
I have tried our phones on 2 different laptops and they are immediately
detected and identified correctly.

I have also tried all the permetations of connecting before and after
booting the pc but none of it seems to make any difference, am i missing

I returned it (through the post, it was an ebay purchase) and received
another but its exactly the same.

Any advice appreciated

You make no mention of OS, protocols installed, etc.  So... try this
link to MS description of IRDA on XP:
