As far as I understand, that shortcut works with a small application made by Dell for windows to toggle the wireless radios on and off. As I'm running OSX, Fn + 2 does me little good. And shouldn't be necessary, as the module is on and transferring data just fine. So long as I don't sleep the computer...

[sigh]

And now the module doesn't even recognize in OSX. This is what I get for installing Windows 7 on the spare SSD. The module didn't correctly configure under windows 7, nor did the Dell wireless (Fn + 2) toggle application, and now the module doesn't even appear on the mac side. (This is what I get for being tempted back to the dark side) :-)

So it seemed I installed the the module incorrectly (flipped upside down) and of course, no workee. I corrected my problem, but still no workee -- I'm assuming that I blew out the module by having the 3.3V cable where the ground cable should be. Arrrgh! Wish the pictures in the install were better!

I have emailed the seller to try and get a replacement. Going to try and take pictures once I get it installed so that others don't repeat my mistake.

Don't feel too bad. You're the second person to admit the mistake. The seller did replace the other person's destroyed module but that was before they put a disclaimer on Ebay. Still, good luck and it you post better pictures, that will be useful for everyone.

I remember when I installed mine, I took along time to make sure I was doing it correctly. :-/

I received my BT module from Hellowifi last week. They'd emailed me a few days before it was delivered saying that the cable that shipped with it was defective and it would damage the BT module. They shipped a replacement, I'm just curious if anyone else had this experience.

I was lucky to realize the correct side. First, I tried to plug in the cable the wrong way to my 10v board. Everything was too tiny and I didn't see it well first. But it didn't seem to plug in nicely. Then I realized that all those cream colored plugs had some kind of hook on their upper side, and so as the plug attached to the bluetooth cable.

Once the module was plugged in correctly, I followed the instruction provided by hellowifi to enable the bluetooth. XP found the module right away but didn't find the driver. Again following the instruction, I installed the driver R210564.exe from Dell's service page. After that, everything worked fine. It shows up as BCM2046 Bluetooth Device with driver WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software 5.5.0.4700.
