Step 15: Wireless - The most "Can I send him to the corner store for some snacks yet?" step

Disconnect the power supplies.

Reattach the Bluesmirf.

Attach the batteries.

The BlueSmirf will appear on a different COM port than the USB.

NOTE: BlueSmirf and USB connections do not play nice together.

You cannot connect via BlueTooth when the USB is connected.

You cannot update the Arduino code when the BlueSmirf is connected.

I hope you didn't skip the molex!

You can use Bluetooth while drawing power from the wall warts.  (You don't have to use Bluetooth with the battery packs)
