T61 Bluetooth won't pair w/ Wiimote (Wii Remote) with 5.5.0.5800

I'm trying to use a wiimote for a elecronic whitebaord implementation. (wiimoteproject.com). The wiimote doesn't use a passkey to pair. If one is given, it won't pair. I just downloaded the latest BT stack and am now version 5.5.0.5800. However, when you add a device in My Bluetooth Places, it requires a passkey. The previous version of the BT stack ( I believe the version I had before was 5.1.xxx ) didn't require the passkey to pair.

 

Help.

Hi, I have the same problem. Have you solved the problem already?

No, no replies here. My fallback is to use the bluesoliel dongle I have.

OK, I solved my problem (just connecting the Wii to T61) after installing Microsoft stack, driver no 5.1.2600.5512 - I do not know if it is stable. Right now I can run Test app and read from Wii - so it is a big step forward :-)

Sweet - let me know how it goes.

I know this post is old, but I have the same problem.  Where might this Microsoft stack be downloaded?

Hi.

 

I could't find the drivers version metioned above.

 

My case was the same, I always was asked for a key pass for the wii mote.

 

And when I went to Start->Settings->Control Panel-> Blue Tooth Devices. In the Hardware tab there was nothing.

 

Using add and remove programs I remove Thinkpad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software (It took much time with the progress bar stoped) and after restarting, windows installed automatically its drivers ¿instead of the lenovo ones?.

 

The fact is that now I can use Start->Settings->Control Panel-> Blue Tooth Devices. In the hardware tab now there is information and using the Devices tab I can add the wii mote, this time it asks you if a pass key is needed.

 

I hope this was your case too.

download BlueSoleil and WiiFlash.  (must have Internal Blutooth or USB Bluetooth on PC)

 

1. Install BlueSoleil

2. Then WiiFlash

3. Open BlueSoliel - Press yellow button in middle to turn on Bluetooth

4. Open WiiFlash, then minimize- Press 1 and 2 on Wii Remote to Sync

5. Right click the detected remote on BlueSoleil and press connect

6. This should connect wii remote, and WiiFlash will also detect it.

 

P.S. It's normal for the WiiMote to keep flashing after its connected
