PC Suite 4.81, 6310i and USB adapters
It seams that PC Suite 4.81 for 6310i is NOT compatible with USB accessories.
I have worked fine 14 month with my "old 6210" and my Sony PCG-R600 notebook unsing an external USB IrDa adapter Bafo BF-120.
My 6210 died. I selected the professional choice compatible with my 6210: a 6310i.
But the 6310i and the PC Suite 4.81 don't work any more (with my IrDa adapter).
I buyed an USB MSI Bluetooth adapter.
I can communicate with the phone, but NOT with PC Suite.
After a long call to the support service, it is "officialy clear" (where ? only when you haye the problem, it's become official) that Nokia DO NOT SUPPORT USB adapters.
Nokia mobile ??????
Yes, but only with Nokia accessories !!!!
And only with PCMCIA card provided by Nokia of course.
So if you buy the DTL-4 connectivity pack, you will have a chance to be mobile !!!
If anyone found a solution to communicate with an USB adapter (IR or BT) and PC Suite, I will appreciate.
RE: PC Suite 4.81, 6310i and USB adapters
Nokia PC Suite should work correctly if the adapter used is seen to Windows as physical COM-port. So when using adapter it might not detect the phone if the adapter is not configured correctly or it is not fully compatible with Windows enviroment and the hardware used. As there is lots of different adapters available at the markets there is no way to make software that would be compatible with all of them.

This is the solution that I found from irda.org newsgroup and I have verified it. thanks to wouter.

go to control panel / wireless link / hardware / properties / advanced, and select Vishay 6101E, trunaround=1 Ms / speed enable=115200. It will work.
