Re: you've never tried to connect wifi/bluetooth to devices

Last night I spent hours trying to get a wireless Xbox controller to pair with a PC.

Just needs a Bluetooth dongle, bollocks, the computer can see the controller it just won't pair, keeps asking for a PIN number, tried the standard 0000 or 1111 etc no luck. Further searching on the web suggests updating the firmware, nope all up to date. The last thing I found before giving up was, it needs Bluetooth 4 to work, oh great buy another dongle in the hope it might work, or just give up and run it from a cable.

Went for option 3, took it back to Currys for a refund.
