  1. bluetooth adapter - I have 3, can't make any of them to work


    I have a bluetooth 4 adapter that stopped working today, after I updated windows yesterday...
    I have 1 easyidea bluetooth 5 from AliExpress, which is identified and installed but when searching for devices it doesn't find anything (when searching for devices with my phone I find devices)
    and I have another gold touch bluetooth 5 which acts exactly as the easyidea one.

    I thought we're past the drivers issues etc. at windows 10...
    so frustrating...
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Promate Bluetooth™ 4.0 USB Adapter !

    Hello Everyone

    I have just bought the above mentioned bluetooth adapter but unfortunately cant manage to connect my bluetooth headset with it (does not find the device in pairing mode, keeps searching)! I have downloaded and installed the latest driver for this device from the promate website. Any suggestions?

    OS - Win7 64 bit

    Can't get Bluetooth working...

    If your sure that its recognised properly then have a look on this links page http://www.holtmann.org/linux/bluetooth/

    The only thing i can think of to fix if it isnt recognised by linux is the following:

    Firstly you have to find out what chipset your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Secondly i think your going to have to basically compile your own kernel and include the module for the chipset that your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Thirdly depending on if you add it to the kernel or as like built in you will have to add the name of the module to a config file which is used when you boot linux.

    If the kernel doesnt have support for your bluetooth dongle then you can either try and find a different copy of the kernel which does or try and find the driver for it.

    To recompile your own kernel however requires a whole guide itself , plus different linux distro's will have different kernels with different options and slightly different config files.

    Only thing i can suggest is going to www.gentoo.org and reading through their handbook, its basically step by step setting up linux manually, in the handbook there is a page or two on recompiling your kernel for your particular configuration.

    Wifi/Bluetooth adapter issues/ maybe virus

    Hi Nath,

    Try re-enabling your third-party anitivirus and do a full system scan. Once done, and if Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is still not working, try to uninstall and reinstall both drivers. Follow these steps:

    1. Right-click on Start menu button, and select Device Manager.
    2. Expand Network adapter section, right-click on your Wi-Fi driver and select
      Uninstall device.
    3. Repeat the steps for Bluetooth driver.
    4. Restart your computer.

    Both drivers should reload fine after the restart. If it doesn't, I suggest manually downloading and installing the latest wireless network adapter and Bluetooth driver from your computer manufacturer website.

    If you need further help, let me know by posting back. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
