Default Anyone get BT Keyboard working with OSX? - 08-26-2009, 01:34 PM

I successfully installed the Dell BT module (no breakage of plastic!) and my BT mouse works great. My problem is that I can't seem to pair the Apple BT keyboard. Any ideas?

The Apple wireless keyboard works like a charm. Stick in batteries, put the cap back on, press the button and it pairs easily.

The Apple Wireless Keyboards are awesome too!

Same here. Are you able to get other BT items to pair?

Yeah, I can pair the BT mouse. I do see the green light blinking as it seems to try to pair but then it doesn't get past the setup screen. It recognizes the keyboard and gives me code to enter but after entry it times out. I can pair the keyboard to my wife's macbook without trouble so I don't think it's batteries or the keyboard with the problem.

I have a Think Outside fold-up BT keyboard, and I can't get it to pair.
