My bluetooth is set to "on" and hcitool dev returns hci0's MAC address. When I use wmgui and tell it to connect and press 1+2 (or the red Sync button), it just returns "Unable to connect". When I run hcitool scan it says "Scanning..." and after a few seconds closes.

Is there any chance my bluetooth is detected as on and working but is not actually functioning?
