I just got this new cellphone, V551 Moto, it's pretty fancy, and I just wanted to know if I can connect it's bluetooth to my computer's wireless, I have a Gateway 7422GX, AMD 64 3400+, 1GB Ram, 80GB HDD, Broadcom Wireless 54g, it says in it's options something about bluetooth in the configuration part of the device manager "Broadcom 802.11g network adaptor properties", in the advanced part the second item on the left list says: Bluetooth collaboration, I have it on enabled but I don't know if that would make it connect to my computer, when ever I make my cell phone's bluetooth active for 60sec to sync with the computer's wireless, it doesn't work, both try to find each other at the same time but no i have to get a bluetooth wireless card or USB thing for it? I don't want to spend and spend you know...

if your phone and pc support bluetooth, then yes.

My cell phone does support bluetooth, my laptop doesn't have something that says that it's a bluetooth fully supported one, as I said it has a bluetooth colaboration...which is something i don't really understand what that means, does it mean that it should work or should I get a Bluetooth USB adapter to make it work...I really don't know, if you have a wireless card, you can see the options you have in the device manager..if you have a bluetooth device try it out and tell me if you have any luck, as far as I know, they are both 2.4GHz which seems to me..YES it should but then I can't get em to find each other...

click on your wireless device switch and it will show you if you have the bluetooth, if you cant see it then you will have to buy a bluetooth usb adaptor which is very simple to use, to recieve and send information between phone and pc use file transfer in your bluetooth folder thats in your pc, hope this will hep you

Hi Amir,
I've got a HP laptop with the same WiFi adapter for almost two years and I just discovered this option. It's true that WiFi and BlueTooth use the same frequency. However they don't use the same medium access protocols (which is hardware implemented). So I don't think you can use your WiFi adapter for BlueTooth communications. I rather think that this option is intended for establishing a collaboration with a BlueTooth device (in this case your computer needs a BlueTooth adapter) such as a PalmTop so this device can use the Laptop's WiFi adapter in order to access to the Internet (or to a local or ad-hoc WiFi network).
Sorry if there are mistakes in my English (I'm french).
I hope you understood what I mean.

Best regards
