    I've got two cf-30s (KC and KT mk 3s), and can't see any evidence that they have bluetooth modules installed. Is there a way to check that w/o removing the keyboard? I've "enabled" bluetooth in set up, but when I download corresponding drivers/software from Panasonic, I get "machine does NOT support" message.

    Assuming I don't have modules, does anyone have one they'd like to sell? Thanks.

    Is bluetooth showing up or activated in BIOS?

    (one old bluetooth hack was using a mini usb module and putting it in the rear ports with the door closed, certain models would fit with the door closed)

    Yes, bluetooth can be--and has been--enabled in BIOS. I just enabled it on one of the cf-30s, and the bluetooth light on the front came on during the boot up, but then went off.

    Problem solved! Bluetooth was Bios enabled but was not turned on. Duh.

    Bluetooth antenna is under the keyboard bezel next to the Esc F1 F2 keys. (If it's stock.)
