2 out of 5 eggs Random disconnects 08/27/2012

This review is from: IOGEAR GBU321 Long Range Rate Bluetooth USB Adapter

Pros: Great clear sound and signal in Linux and Windows

Cons: In both windows and Linux, has issues with random disconnects. It is VERY hard to get it to reconnect!

Other Thoughts: Uhm, I've tried using the Windows and WIDCOMM stack in Windows, the bluetoothd stack in Linux, and all have the same issues. Consistently.

At first, we (not just me, but my fiance as well) thought it could be driver issues. We looked around, tried every driver option we could find, aaaand we still have issues with random disconnects. At any usable distance (from right beside the adapter, 40ft away, and everywhere in between!), at any battery strength on the connected devices, and so on.

When it works, it is FLAWLESS. It's just a craps shoot, and we haven't figured out what makes them work better or worse.

Any feedback on what we may be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.
