It is Bluetooth 2. If you break your laptop it is not my fault. The jewel of this install is in the use of an old USB extension cable to create an internal port which makes it a bit more future proof I can upgrade the module at any point by simply connecting a new device also the placement on the bottom side allows me to position the female USB connector directly under the access panel for easy access without dis-assembly of the laptop. Can you let me know what tools and solder you used for the job, and also — if you have any idea — a good resource to hone my skills before I trash by PC? Joe on October 26, 9:

Great project, I learned a lot. I wish to install a bluetooth on one of my acer aspires what one d55e you recomend buying that has the same set up as yours did? Use flux, as seen here.

I just recently bought a Bestlink Alpha Also, do not forget to put some starter solder on the wires before you go after the connections. The following WILL void your warranty. Even those meant as a joke. I then routed the wires to bouetooth other side of the mother board for attachment to the female Aspire one d255e bluetooth connector.

What blue tooth do you recomend to use for the mod? Look around your house, you must have an old motherboard or something with a fine f255e small chip size that you could try soldering wires to.
