Unhappy Bluetooth Connector on MotherBoard Just USB? - 11-13-2008, 07:02 AM

Is the Bluetooth connector on the motherboard in the dell mini just a standard usb connection?
I have a bluetooth card from an old MacBook and i believe they are just standard usb, so if the one in the dell was to, it would be perfect

no, it's not quite a standard USB connection... it uses a 3.3v power bus instead of the 5v normally used by USB. it's power is switched on and off by the WLSS hardware/software as well.
