Need help getting bluetooth working on supported hardware


Guys. I'm trying to get bluetooth working on what I think is supported hardware. I've got a Trendnet tbw-101ub usb bluetooth dongle. I've searched and saw postings saying that it works out of the box. I've running installed linux on my Pogoplug Pink device:

Code:
root@debian# uname -a
Linux debian 3.2.0-4-kirkwood #1 Debian 3.2.46-1+deb7u1 armv5tel GNU/Linux
I've installed 'apt-get install bluetooth'. Here's what I get when I try to get a status:

Code:
root@debian# /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
          Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled)
          Active: active (running) since Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:01:55 +0000; 43 years and 8 months ago
        Main PID: 316 (bluetoothd)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service
                   316 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd -n

Sep 03 15:30:47 debian bluetoothd[316]: bluetoothd[421]: Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)
and here's part of my dmesg output:

Code:

I'm guessing because this is OS was modified to run on stripped down hardware that things like 'lsusb' do not exist. I could probably install it if I knew what package they come from.


I have no idea where to look or where to go next to try and get bluetooth working. Can any of you suggest what I need to do or where to look?
