hi..because i am not getting anywhere with a infrared link, i am going to start again..

have you enabled the infrared link? and have you got the icon on the task bar?

i have posted the same subject before. but could not get anywhere :-((

The infra red link icon only appears when another "activated" infra red device is nearby. The infra red on the laptop should already be activated. If not go to START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE and click on the Infra Red icon.

hi,it tells me that the device is working, but the icon, as far as i can see, should be a small square with a red spot, then when the phone is set, it should change to a double red spot, i have nothing at all..so i can not move on and set it up.

I'm not sure how helpful this will be, but my son had a similar problem and it turned out that the infra red link wasn't activated. Instructions can be found at click here page 51. Also the phone has to be very close to the infra red for the link to work.

i have just reset it all from square one, the only thing i do not get come on the screen is the bit about "installing the drivers" in properties it tells me the device is working properly.. but still no icon..
