    So I got my G5 a few weeks ago, but it doesn't have a bluetooth module installed, although it is BT Ready. Does anyone know where I can get the module for it? I checked on eBay and couldn't really find anything. If anyone knows where I can get one, that would be helpful. Thanks

    Because then you waste a USB slot when the computer is already wired for it.

    I got mine off eBay. It's not going to come with the little screws, but it fits snug in place on the connector. I used a piece of foam tape to keep it in place just in case. IIRC the highest BT profile you can get for the module is 1.1 or 1.2 so keep that in mind with what devices you use.

    For some reason I can no longer sync my Blackberry with my G5 in Leopard. They both find each other but when I try to transfer files it drops the connection.

    I should be able to find some screws, I work in a computer warehouse. I only plan on using it for wireless keyboard and mouse, so speed isn't really an issue
