Bluetooth® is a wireless technology for exchanging data over short distances. A PC that is not enabled with the Bluetooth® can use a Bluetooth® adaptor that makes the PC contact with the other Bluetooth® devices. Windows® Vista supports the additional profiles without the requirement of the Microsoft® stack to be replaced.

Setting up the Bluetooth® in Windows® Vista
Use the Bluetooth® adaptor by connecting it through the USB port and if the adaptor is built in then this procedure need not to be followed.
Set up the devices, the sender and the receiver so that the computer can find it. Go to ‘Start then Control panel’,‘Network and Internet’and then select ‘Set up Bluetooth enabled device’
Click on ‘Add’,then select the option my device is set up and ready to be found’,select ‘Next’all the available devices will be shown click on the one you want to connect to,press ‘Next’ Enter your own pass key or let Vista to choose it for you, or you can work without the pass key also. On the external device a dialogue box appears asking for the permission to connect to the system, select ‘Yes’ and enter the pass key. A window will pop up mentioning that a new hardware is found, choose ‘Locate’ and install the driver software. Click on the ‘Finish’ option and test the connection.
Things to be kept in mind
The things that should be kept in mind are the problems that can be faced while enabling the Bluetooth® connection. The computer may not recognize the Bluetooth® enabled device. The device may be out of the reach of the computer or too close. Make sure that the device is not busy with many connections at a time and that the computer is trying to connect to a correct device. Check if the pass key that you are using is the correct one. Make sure that Vista is enabled to accept the incoming Bluetooth® connections. Security may have been reset in the other devices.
The distance between both the devices should be kept in consideration, as they should neither be too far that they do not catch the signals not they should be too close that their frequencies hinder each other’s path.
The Bluetooth® should not always be kept switched on as it may attract wrong data to attack your device or the system. The viruses are more prone to attack the system that is easily accessible. With the advancements of technologies comes a hazard of equal nature. Do keep in mind that the Internet and Bluetooth® or any other wireless connection is password protected, which limits the access to a certain limit.
During the Bluetooth® operation keep in mind that no unnecessary programs are running or there are no multiple connections, which may slow down the whole process.
