I've searched all around the internet and haven't found a solution for this. I rarely post here, because I usually find the answer to my problem, but I'm really at wit's end.

I'm using a bluetooth dongle that's coming up as:

Bus 004 Device 002: ID 1131:1004 Integrated System Solution Corp. Bluetooth Device

Bluetooth manager isn't recognizing the adapter.

sudo hciconfig hci0 up says:

Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)

Have reinstalled all bluetooth packages, removed dongle, rebooted, installed bluez, searched high and low, and there seems to be no answer short of a bug in the kernel. Any ideas?
