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
