bluetooth Q
on Aug 12, 2005 at 11:29:21 pm

Hi there,

on my G5 (latest OS) bluetooth can take up to 10 minutes to be recognized....which makes it not reasonable to use the kb and mouse for me. is there something wrong with this or is this expected functionality? any advise?

thanks,
Todd

Make sure you attached the little Bluetooth antenna to the back of your G5. If you have a metal desk, or a 2.4 GHZ phone near by it could be interfering with the signal as well. Make sure you've updated the Bluetooth firmware (and software) to the latest version: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86493

Also, try these things: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86496

For more tips and possible solutions I suggest searching the Bluetooth section of Apple's Knowledge Base found here: http://www.apple.com/support/bluetooth/

Report back to us if you find a solution, as it may help others who are having similar problems.

Tony!
