Post need a bluetooth dongle for Lego NXT Mindstorms 2.0
The link on the Lego Store web page is file not found. Please recommend a Windows XP SP3 USB compatible dongle which will work for Mindstorms 2.0. This is our first robot and my three boys and I love it thus far.
Thank-you in advance.

You may be able to get it via LEGO Education through this link: http://education.lego.com/en-gb/product ... orms/9847/

I am surprised LEGO took that thing off their normal S@H site. I looked and couldn't find it either. Very odd.

I have ordered a few USB dongles from newegg.com and all of them work very well.

Do you have a make and model? It's really hit and miss with other USB dongles. I have a few working non-LEGO-site ones and they work great but they're Chinese Ni Hau Inc type ones and probable OEMd with a different cover for every country they're sold in.

I don't know. I subscribed to the newegg "junk mail" list and they have sales on USB dongles from time to time for 6-9 dollars. Since my students have a habbit of forgetting to bring dongles, I kept a bunch of them on hand. They are various brands. I remember one of them is ASUS.

Look here: http://thenxtstep.blogspot.com/2011/01/ ... ience.html

People with experience using different dongles with mindstorms have posted what they use, and it's a pretty big list.
