This is my first post so please forgive me if I do something I shouldn't.

I'm having trouble getting my lap top usb bluetooth adapter to connect to the Basic Stamp. Below is the code I copied from the eb500 manual (P.46) connect.bs2 .· I changed the comment lines to debug lines so that I could see what was going on.

When I run I get stuck in a loop and no connection is made. Below is the code (it's very short)

What am I missing or doing wrong? I'm pretty sure it has to do with either the addresses or com port, but I've double checked everything.

Thanks, Steve Woodrough



My BT adapter address is 00:0d:18:01:1a:d8

the eb500 address is 00:0c:84:00:48:84

Incoming port Name:eb500 and is on COM11

Outgoing port Name:eb500'A7 Serial Port' and is on COM 12

pass key is enabled

' {$STAMP BS2}
' {$PBASIC 2.5}

SteveWoodrough,

Do you have the Rec C version of the eb500?

If so, have you made the modification to allow it to work with the BS2 Application header?

Just a thought.

you could try making sure that the eb500 is set to visible, and also while it's tryoing to connect, search for local bluetooth adapters on your pc. once you find it and establish a trusted connection, they should find each other and connect problem free.

my own experiences have shown me that bluetooth is a great application, just kind of finiky.
