  1. [Bluetooth] Multiple devices connected


    Hello.

    First of all, this is my first post, so sorry if it's a noob question and/or if I missed some posting rules.

    I play games on Steam using an official Xbox 360 Controller since 2011 without facing any single issue so far. Now I'm planning to buy an Xbox One Controller, but I have some questions about its wireless connectivity. I know that there are basically two models, the ones which need the Wireless Adapter (Microsoft Controller + Wireless Adapter: Amazon.com.au: Video Games) and those that work with Bluetooth (Xbox One Wireless Controller - Grey Blue: Amazon.com.au: Video Games).

    I would like to buy one of the latter as they seem to be a more recent model and also to have a better grip. Since I also use a Bluetooth headset to play, is it possible to have more than one device connected to my PC via Bluetooth at the same time? I read something about the "mastery-slavery" control mode under which Bluetooth technology works that guarantees that the master (my PC) can have 7 slaves (the external devices) connected to it simultaneously, but only if they're from different types (?).

    Could anyone kindly clarify this to me, please? I read several pages and posts regarding this subject, but I'm still unsure about it and I wouldn't like to buy an expensive device such an Xbox One Controller to find out that it doesn't work as I intended.

    Thank you very much!

  2. Connecting devices with bluetooth.

    We appreciate your response. To further troubleshoot your concern, we suggest that you create a test user profile and then check if you will have the same issue with connecting Bluetooth devices on your computer. This is for us to verify if the issue is
    isolated with one user profile or with multiple accounts.

    To create a test user profile, follow these steps:

    • Using Cortana search, type Settings and then hit the Enter key.
    • In the Settings window, select Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Choose Add someone else to this PC.
    • Click I don't have this person's sign-in information.
    • Click Add a user without a Microsoft account.
    • Name the user as TEST and then provide a password.

    Update us about the results.

  3. Try3 Win User
    Cannot use bluetooth device

    1 Pairing is done in Settings, Devices
    1.1 You click on Add Bluetooth or other device
    1.2 You choose Bluetooth
    1.3 If there is a pairing button on the bluetooth device itself then you press that now. You need to check the instructions for your bluetooth device to see how to do this - several automatically go into pairing mode when they switch on, others have a button that needs to be pressed for, say, 5 seconds.
    1.4 The computer detects all available bluetooth devices and you select yours from the list. If yours is not on the list then Windows could not detect it.
    1.5 It connects - pairing includes connecting
    1.6 The computer sounds a buzz in the earpiece then displays Your device is ready to go and you click on Done
    1.7 The device is shown in the devices list below the subheading Audio and it shows it as connected
    1.8 The device should also appear in Control panel, Sounds, Playback tab
    1.9 The device should also appear in Control panel, Devices & printers
    1.10 {I just paired some bluetooth earphones as I typed so I could make sure these notes were correct} You use a music player and the sound comes out of the bluetooth earphones

    2 If this is not happening for you then go to Contol panel, Devices & printers
    2.1 Right-click on the device & select Remove device
    2.2 You can now try pairing from scratch again
    2.3 Several other users have reported that only removing the device with Bluetooth command line tools - BluetoothInstaller allowed them to re-pair again [see xzion's guidance below]
    2.4 Yet others reported that only the KeithM code or Bungee's guidance worked for them [see below]

    3 Where is this all going wrong for you?
    [I assume we are definitely talking about bluetooth headphones/earphones. I understand that WiFi ones do also exist.]

    Several people registered in TenForums just to be able to thanks xzion, KeithM & Bungee. Apparently, what worked for some people did not work for others so each solution seems worth trying.

    Bluetooth devices will not connect

    Hello Jean57sn, my name is Irisdiel and I am an independent advisor.

    Down below I'm going to provide you with steps and instructions on how to help you with your issue which was listed by Lenovo Support to best help you.

    Make sure your computer has the necessary hardware and that wireless is turned on. Bluetooth requires both hardware and software to work. Not all wireless networking hardware supports Bluetooth.

    Method 1:

    Step 1: Enable Bluetooth radio If Bluetooth is not turned on it may not show up in your control panel or device manager. We first need to enable the Bluetooth radio Press the key or button to enable your wireless adapter. This key may be the, F8 or Press Fn+F5
    (or F5).

    Step 2: Check the Bluetooth drivers

    Click Start and search for "Device Manager"

    Look for all Bluetooth listings by opening the Network Adapters category and the Bluetooth Radios category (if available). If you can't find any Bluetooth listings under Network adapter and Bluetooth radios proceed to next step B

    Make sure the driver has no Yellow exclamation mark or Down arrow sign

    - Yellow Mark = The Bluetooth hardware is not responding or set up correctly. Updating or reinstalling Bluetooth drivers may correct this problem

    - Down Arrow= Bluetooth is disabled. Right-click the device and select Enable to turn on Bluetooth.

    Method 2: Enable Discovery Mode

    Click Start and search for "Change Bluetooth"

    From the Options tab, select Allow Bluetooth device to find this computer, and make sure Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer is selected.

    Click OK and try to connect to your device. If problems persist, continue to the next step.

    Method 3: Update Bluetooth Drivers

    Click Start and type "Device Manager"

    In Device Manager locate the Bluetooth adapter. Right-click and select Update Driver Software,

    Select Search automatically for updated driver software, and then follow the rest of the steps.

    Then...

    Click Start and type "Device Manager"

    In Device Manager locate the Bluetooth adapter. Select Uninstall

    Restart your machine and Windows will automatically install the driver after you logged in

    I also suggest you refer to Lenovo support down below as this issue has to do with Microsoft for best support:
