I'm trying to set up bluetooth on my 11.0-RELEASE laptop.
I got

ubt0: <vendor 0x8087 product 0x07dc, class 224/1, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 1> on usbus0

in dmesg.

I also see

# service bluetooth start ubt0
/etc/rc.d/bluetooth: ERROR: Unable to setup Bluetooth stack for device ubt0

ng_hci_process_command_timeout: ubt0hci - unable to complete HCI command OGF=0x3, OCF=0x3. Timeout
ubt0: ubt_ctrl_write_callback:780: control transfer failed: USB_ERR_TIMEOUT


# hccontrol -n ubt0hci inquiry
hccontrol: Could not find HCI nodes

The handbook talks about "bluetooth usb dongles".
So do I need some other hardware to get my bluetooth to work?
Or am I missing the point?

Thanks for any advice
