Okay guys here we go...I need an idiots guide now.

I have a new laptop (Toshiba) with an infrared port, I also have a Nokia 5210 with infrared, although it is easy to activate infrared on the mobile it is a different story on my laptop...I have been through all my settings and network connection wizards to no avail, I just cannot get them to recognise one another or establish a connection...so I hope in anticipation that someone could please post a real IDIOTS guide that's right IDIOT to setting this up and activating, pleeeease.

Off to work now so I look forward to my return and some good news. GULP.

Thanks guys.....and gals of course.


Scotty.
