    Has anyone here bought a bluetooth dongle from dealextreme which works with the wiimote? I bought the $4 one but it didnt work so im doing a bit of research before I buy another.

    Do you have to use bluesoleil and can you use it with glovepie? (sorry if its a n00b question)

    Also, does the vista version only work with the wiimote? Cause the non-vista version is like $5

    Out of the corner of your eye
    I got a dongle from Amazon Marketplace for 99p + 50p postage ... total of £1.49 ... and it works beautifully.

    It's a USB connector, minus the metal housing that usually surrounds it ... will plug perfectly well into any USB slot.

    GBATemp factory.
    Well i use one of these that costed me 3$. It costs 4$ now but it works.
    Allthrough i had to hack the bluesoleil driver to make it work.
    But thats really simple.

    Yea I had to install bluesoleil to connect my wiimote to my computer. Glovepie worked.

    I'm guessing the non-vista version should also work with the wiimote.
