The four steps detailed in this chapter include installing software, inserting the card, getting connected, and setting up dialup networking. STEP 1: Install the Software Follow these steps BEFORE inserting the Bluetooth Card: 1. Make an active partnership between the mobile computer and a host PC. An active partnership exists if data can be moved between the mobile computer and the host PC via a serial/USB/Ethernet cable or cradle. 2. Insert the Socket Bluetooth Card Installation CD into the host PC. 3. Run the SETUP.HTM or SETUP.EXE file on the CD-ROM, depending on what web browser your host PC uses by default. IF YOUR DEFAULT WEB BROWSER IS INTERNET EXPLORER, run the SETUP.HTM file: (a) Click Start | Run on the host PC. Type X:\SETUP.HTM (Replace X with your CD drive letter.) (b) In File Download, select the option that lets you run (or open) the file. IMPORTANT! YOU MUST RUN THE FILE! DO NOT SAVE IT! File Download screen from Internet Explorer 5.5 (c) A Security Warning screen will appear. Click Yes. CHAPTER 2: BASIC SETUP | 7 IF YOUR DEFAULT WEB BROWSER IS NETSCAPE, DO NOT run the SETUP.HTM file on Netscape. Instead, choose either of two options: OPTION ONE: Use Internet Explorer to run the SETUP.HTM file. (a) In the Internet Explorer screen, click File | Open. (b) In the Open screen, type X:\SETUP.HTM (Replace X with your CD drive letter.) Open screen from Internet Explorer 5.5 (c) Proceed with the instructions described on the previous page for Internet Explorer. OPTION TWO: Run the SETUP.EXE file. Click on My Computer or use Windows Explorer to manually browse the CD to the WinCE (or other appropriate directory) and manually launch the SETUP.EXE file found there. Important! Be sure to choose the SETUP.EXE file, NOT the SETUP.HTM file. The two file types have different icons: EXE icon HTM icon for Netscape 4. Follow the instructions on the host PC screen until installation is done. 5. After completing setup, your host PC may display an Application Downloading Complete. Click OK. 6. In the Dialog screen, enter a name for the mobile computer. Tap ok. 8 | CHAPTER 2: BASIC SETUP 7. If desired, install the Socket Dialer. This program lets you dial a number directly from your Contacts list. 8. Disconnect the mobile computer from the host computer. Soft reset the mobile computer. Push the reset button, often on the back of the device. CHAPTER 2: BASIC SETUP | 9 STEP 2: Insert the Card Important! Do NOT insert the card upside down or shove the card in too hard. Damage may occur! Insert the card into your mobile computer’s slot. If using a PC Card slot, first insert the Bluetooth Card into a CompactFlash-to-PC Card adapter (available separately). Make sure the blue label is on top. Insert the card directly into a CompactFlash I/O slot… …or plug the card into an adapter for use in a PC Card slot. When properly inserted, the card unit will be fully contained within the slot. After the mobile computer recognizes the card, the following will occur: • You will get a message warning against using Bluetooth on airplanes. Tap OK. • The Bluetooth icon will appear in the task tray (visible in the Today screen for Pocket PCs and Pocket PC 2002s). 10 | CHAPTER 2: BASIC SETUP STEP 3: Get Connected! The Get Connected!

The product does not contain consumer serviceable components. Should your Bluetooth Card need service, please contact Socket technical support at: firstname.lastname@example.org. • Treat your product with care. Keep in a clean and dust-free place. • Changes or modifications of this product, not expressly approved by Socket, may void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. Antenna Care Do not place a metallic shield around your Bluetooth Card since it will reduce the radio transmission efficiency. Efficient Use For optimum performance, please make sure that there is no metallic surrounding your Bluetooth Card. Driving RF energy may affect some electronic systems in motor vehicles, such as car stereo, safety equipment, etc. Check with your vehicle manufacturer’s representative to be sure that your Bluetooth Card will not affect the electronic system in your vehicle. Aircraft • Turn off your Bluetooth Card antenna before boarding any aircraft. • To prevent interference with communications systems, you must not use your Bluetooth Card while the plane is in the air. • Do not use it on the ground without permission from the crew. 36 | APPENDIX B: SAFETY AND USAGE TIPS Radio Frequency Exposure Your Bluetooth Card is a radio transmitter and receiver. When in operation, it communicates with a Bluetooth-equipped mobile phone or mobile computer by receiving and transmitting radio frequency (RF) magnetic fields in the frequency range 2400 to 2500 MHz. The output power of the radio transmitter is 0.001 Watt. The Bluetooth Card unit is designed to be in compliance with the RF exposure limits set by national authorities and international health agencies1 when installed or used separately from other antennas or radio transmitters. Examples of RF exposure standards and guidelines: ICNIRP, “Guidelines for limiting exposure to time-varying electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields (up to 300 GHz)”, International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), Health Physics, vol. 74, pp 494-533, April 1998. 99/519/EC, EU Council Recommendation on the limitation of exposure to the general public to electromagnetic fields 0 Hz – 300 GHz, Official Journal of the European Communities, July 12, 1999.
