I was having trouble too, until I found this topic on the board...


Broadcom 2045/2046 bluetooth legacy Kext


If you can find or have one with a Broadcom 2045 or 2046 chipset in it, the legacy kext above should work. I tried it on both an AUS BT-21 and a Targus ACB10US (old long silver one), and both the Magic mouse and the short keyboard work flawlessly with the Targus ACB10US. The ASUS BT-21 works (wake from sleep too) but there seems to be a slight bit of mouse lag, but not all the time. Though it might be due to where my computer is (under my desk way in the back).


I feel that the Targus ACB10US works the best (that I have tried), it's long (about 1 inch long and silver in color), but, they don't make it anymore, I found mine on ebay for 3 or 4 USD.


I did a search on Google for broadcom 2045 usb bluetooth dongle and got quite a few hits.


You can also read this topic to find suggestions on dongles too.
