    New install of Vista Ultimate on M1210. The Bluetooth driver seems to be setup fine and the icon shows but I see no way to turn it off as I had before with the defualt Dell Vista install. Is there some utlity for this so it can be easily turned on and off from the icon?

    Right-click on the bluetooth icon and select "turn bluetooth adapter on/off". It worked for me on a clean Vista Ultimate 32-bit installation (My XPS M1210 originally came with XP Pro).

    That is the issue, I no longer have that option after the clean install. Perhaps it is the driver I am using, I believe it was the default one that Vista installed. Which driver are you using?

    No, by default Vista seemed to add one. Should I use the Dell one instead?
