For anyone still having trouble with this adapter either under XP x64 or Vista x32/x64, I've found a driver that works perfectly.
It's an MSI driver for their 'Star Key' bluetooth adapter.
Before you install this make sure to remove all traces of previous drivers that may be installed. This can be done via right clicking the device and selecting uninstall within Device Manager.
If prompted, select delete device drivers from the system.
When this is completed for each bluetooth service, reboot the computer and disconnect your computer from the internet - This is to ensure that on system restart Windows does not download and reinstall the device and services.
Now simply run the Star Key driver installation package, reboot and reconnect the internet connection. On startup Windows may want to install a generic device, allow it to do so.
Initially if all the previous drivers were removed completely, your Linksys adapter should now work flawlessly.
You can download the MSI drivers here:
Note: The driver I personally installed was Star Key: WIDCOMM Bluetooth Dongle Driver for Windows Vista, version 188.8.131.5200
