Hello!
I've recently bought a RN-42 bluetooth module, hoping to use it to communicate with my avr wirelessly. Now, I've tried all sorts of things and I cannot make windows 7 detect it...

Thing is, my android phone finds the device without any problems, but not the usb dongle that I put on my computer. On the other hand, that dongle detects other bluetooth devices such as the android phone and a hands-free headset.

Is there any bluetooth gurus around here that could help me shed a light on that problem?

For anyone falling on this thread, the problem was with the usb dongle. I don't know if I had a defective unit or if this model is simply bad, but I would avoid it just to be sure. Got a dongle on ebay for 6$ shipping included, works well.
