Multiple Bluetooth dongles

Postby webbot » Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:51 am

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible to have 2 bluetooth dongles in your PC, discover both and select what one you are going to use and so connect with different dongles to different NXT?

Thanks!

Is it possible to simultaneously send and receive data from both NXT to PC? (with a normal bluetooth adapter)

You can specify the address of the NXT that you want to connect to - or alternatively the name.

You are right, it supports multiple instances.

Thanks!
