Default Help a noob? - 01-19-2010, 06:01 AM

I've managed to get Snow Leopard onto my wife's Mini 9 8GB SSD. Only thing is, Bluetooth won't work. Changing the BIOS setting doesn't work, checking the option in NBI doesn't help. I *think* my wife turned Bluetooth off with the Wireless Control app in XP before I installed OS X. Does that now mean no Bluetooth in OS X no matter what?

All assistance appreciated!

Check System preferences > network to see if Bluetooth DUN is there. If not, try this:
1. Go to System Preferences
2. Open Network
3. Click "+" (lower left hand corner)
4. Add Bluetooth DUN from the interface drop down menu
5. Click "Apply"
You should then be able to configure bluetooth settings. Hope this helps.
