I can't figure out if I have bluetooth on my thinkpad R51. From ibm's webpage:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55029.html#bluetooth

This made me belive there is bluetooth in my computer. My exact model is:
IBM Thinkpad R51, type: 1829-K6G

When I do 'hcitool dev' I just get a line saying 'Devices:' and nothing else.

Do I need to do anything to get bluetooth activated, or do I just need to buy a dongle ;-)?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers,

Ege

Just bumping this question. Unfortunately I can't seem to figure this out on my own, so I really need an answer from somebody with technical knowledge.

Thanks again.
