Q: Bug report: 2.4GHz wifi with bluetooth devices

If you are connected to 2.4GHz wifi, and connect a bluetooth mouse, the mouse seems to lose bandwidth, skipping around the screen when moving. If you toggle wifi off and on again, the issue goes away. If you connect the Bluetooth device AFTER wifi is connected, it works fine.
As I understand, this is a Dell-branded Broadcomm radio.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have seen a few printers that have USB and Wifi connections, I have also seen a small point and shoot digital camera that transfered it's pictures via wifi instead of bluetooth. Is bluetooth being phased out? Does this mean bluetooth is dieing? I know that wifi has a higher data transfer rate so it's more convenient but I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone.

A:Some devices are usinf Wifi instead of bluetooth

Bluetooth isn't dying, but is becoming something more integrated. Some speculate that cars will use it instead of internal cabling (bad idea if you ask me).
This article

But wifi is better for some applications, as it allows the device to get inside a network and communicate with any device inside that network (so it's why wifi is pretty prevalent in printers along the Ethernet interface), while bluetooth is usually used for a temporary very-short-range connection between two devices. So you get bluetooth operated smart locks, sensors and other stuff that would make no sense to put on Wifi.

Why not? They are just different data transfer protocols over radio waves.

itunes is unable to see all 4 devices for 'wireless syncing'.

I am having an intermittent issue with my Asus RT-AC88U router (purchased about 4 months ago). The issue started about a week ago and there have been no changes I have initiated to the router or my Windows 10 Pro PC.

I noticed it first on my phone when at home, it would connect to WiFi (2.4GHz) just fine but said under the connection that internet was not available. 5GHz and wired connections had internet just fine. Resetting (power cycling) the router did not fix it but sometimes it seemed to fix it's self. Last night I had no WiFi on 2.4 but this morning it's fine. My provider is Comcast but if it was Comcast I think the issue would be on 2.4 and 5.

I contacted Asus via their support chat and the tech. had me change some setting and I figured that fixed it till the problem showed up again a day and a half later.

Has anyone had a similar issue and if so found a fix? Is this a router hardware issue and I should contact Asus for a replacement?

Thanks for the help!!

Hi there, both my wife and I have the same x1 extreme 20mf. Mine has trouble communicating with the 2.4 ghz wifi in our home, my wife's does not. Mine can connect but communication is extremely slow. Connecting to the 5ghz in our home is fine on both computers. Mine even has trouble with 2.4ghz when setting up a clean windows 10 install after formatting. Here are the things I have already tried:I have already tried replacing the wifi card in my computer but the new one performs in the same way. I would suspect that the antenna is shorting out somewhere (I don't actually know if that is a thing).I have tried several driver versions 20.70 and 20.50 and 20.120 all same behavior (my wife's is 20.70 and hers works fine).I have tried all the solutions at https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht502846 and none worked for me.I am staying in East Africa until late May so I can't send my computer off to get fixed, but I'm open to any other solutions. Even if there's a guide on how to check the antennas I'd be willing to give that a try. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi guys,
I have a strange problem with my laptop Dell m3800 with Windows 10 and Dell dw1560 Wifi mini card with Broadcom 94352 chip.
I am living in Europe but for some reason my wifi card cannot detect channels 12-13 on 2.4Ghz.
I think this is Windows 10 fault because after I fresh install everything it was working on channels 12-13, after I logged into Microsoft account it cannot detect channels 12-13 anymore.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

A little help will be much appreciated.

I'm using a new Asus AC68U router. My home network includes, among other items, my desktop and my laptop (a Dell XPS 15). The laptop occasionally drops the wifi on the 2.4 GHz band. Everything else on the network handles both bands fine. The laptop has been holding well on the 5Ghz band. How do I determine with the 2.4 Ghz band if the problem is the laptop, the router--or both? How do I diagnose this problem? I should mention that all the laptop and Asus drivers are up to date. Thanks.

Okay, so I don't really know if a solution is out there, but here is the situation I'm in. I only have one available USB port left which I am currently using for the Logitech Bluetooth dongle that came with my Logitech K750 solar keyboard. I would also like to attach my Samsung wep410 headset for Skype calls.

I have tried to discover the headset with and without Logitechs software installed with no luck. I then checked device manager, which does not show the dongle as a Bluetooth receiver/device. My assumption from that is that Logitech has it setup to only receive from their own devices.

Since I have no room for another dongle (and a hub isn't really ideal). Is there some way to force the dongle to detect normal Bluetooth devices? I've searched for a custom driver or other work around with no luck so far. This is on a computer running Windows 7 64bit.

I want to upgrade my home network to support HD streaming over Wifi. I am considering getting an 802.11ac router and replacing my laptops Wifi network card with one that supports the new Wifi 802.11ac standard.

On my home network I want to connect a TV set top box to the router over Cat6 but my laptop is the only device that will be connecting over Wifi. I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Wifi card which supports dual stream but only one band: 2.4Ghz.

It looks like my laptop only has two internal antenna cables and for this reason I am thinking I cannot avail of triple stream Wifi-N 450Mb/s + 450Mb/s on a simultaneous dual band N900 router. I am stuck with a theoretical max of 300Mb/s on 2.4Ghz under Wifi-N and/or 866Mb/s on 5Ghz under Wifi-AC.

Here are my questions:

1. If I get a simultaneous dual band router can my laptop stream an HD movie on the 5Ghz band and at the same time download say a Youtube video on the 2.4Ghz band? I ask that because I'd like to get a such a router and preserve every ounce of bandwidth on its 5Ghz band for streaming movies from the set top box to my laptop... not have to share it for web browsing needs.

2. Would it be a better solution, or even possible, to install a third internal antenna in my laptop and get a triple stream 802.11n class Wifi card (such as the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) and Wifi-N Class router OR should I buy an 802.11ac router and get the better bandwidth it offers...

A:Can my Laptop simultaneously connect to a 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz Wifi network?

You can stream HD movies fine at 150Mbps or even less but it depends on how much of the bandwidth is being used by your neighbors. This can be a big problem in some areas. You won't be able to use both frequency's at once.

Finding the best clean channels to use are what matters most on 2.4 GHz, channel bonding comes in handy sometimes but works best when the channels are mostly clear.

5Ghz is better in this respect because hardly anyone is using it so you tend to get all the bandwidth to yourself but the drawback with 5GHz frequency is that it won't go through walls worth a darn so it's really only useful for open area's outdoors or for large rooms.

I'm running the Asus AC66U router and the Asus PCI-e AC66 NIC which usually runs about 877.5-1.1 Gb. I can stream multiple YouTube video's while watching movies although I could also do this using the 2.4GHz frequency at 300Mbps.

Hi all, this is my first post so I really appreciate all of the help and I can't tell you how much I've benefitted from the things I've read while lurking here over the last few days. Now, on to the show...

I have an HP workstation with a Q35 based mother board that had a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo in it (E6550), and I wanted to put the processor into my new rig, but still want to use the old comp. I have a Cedar Mill core Pentium 4 3.4GHz HT that's also socket 775 and I thought I'd just stick that in the HP since it doesn't need the better processor. Now, when I try to boot the HP, I get a couple of beeps and the fan just goes on overdrive and stays that way until I shut the thing off, but it never boots.

What's weird is that I can stick the Core 2 Duo back in and everything boots up just fine, but the thing just hates on that P4 like no tomorrow. Now I've used the P4 in my new rig just to make sure it wasn't shot, and it works like a charm. It's just in that workstation with the Q35 mother board that I'm getting nowhere. Any thoughts?
 

A:Cedar Mill P4 3.4Ghz in Q35 mobo won't boot. Swapped in for C2D E6650 2.4Ghz

Your workstation motherboard probably does not support that P4 processor. Just because it is socket 775 doesn't mean it is compatible.

Windows 7 Professional 32bit, Gigabyte x86 PC.

Windows bluetooth discovery is not finding any devices. On my android phone I can turn on discovery and locate the PC, and it prompts me to enter the passcode on the PC. However no devices show up.

I have tried three different USB dongles and installed the generic Windows bluetooth driver. (One of the devices prompted me for a different driver which was downloaded and installed, but then the radio was not recognized) I've tried three different devices as well (a mouse, a trackpad, and the android phone).

I've installed "Bluetooth Command Line Tools" and it tells me that the radio is installed and working properly, as does the Windows device manager. Bluetooth icon shows in the system tray when the dongle is plugged in.

I've changed the settings in services.msc as detailed in other posts (changing to local account with my username and password).

I've turned off firewall and antivirus, no change.

Constructive ideas, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. I can't just throw it out the window, though, as this is a work computer. All I want to do is add a Bluetooth trackpad.

A:No bluetooth devices found, but other devices find the PC.

I've just installed BlueSoliel (trail version which will expire in 30 days) and now all my devices can pair and connect.

At this point it appears to be a Windows software / driver issue. I'd really like to track this down and fix it myself, I don't mind actually paying for the BlueSoliel software but I'm stubborn about 'stupid computer problems'.

I thought I had a double NAT problem, online somewhere it said go into Bridge Mode, CSR said the ISP router is already in that mode.

I have a cable router as my ISP, hooked up to a ASUS router (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for the house. Have 10 devices on the ASUS. On the Cisco ISP router, I got my Desktop computer in port 2 running to my Ethernet port on the back of my computer, and ASUS in port 1 which goes to the blue input port on the ASUS. I turned off the WiFi on the Cisco router.

The question I have is how can I log into my ASUS router when hard-wired into port 2 on the CISCO router.
CISCO is 192.168.0.1 - ASUS is using port one 192.168.0.10, Computer is using port two 192.168.1.194
ASUS is 192.168.1.1 - Can only access this router when connected to it via WiFi.

Well I am connected to both now - the WiFi on the ASUS and hardwired to the CISCO.
I have both routers open. ASUS 192.168.1.1 and Cisco 192.168.0.1

I having done a little troubleshooting.

1. I can connect to the shares of my Windows Home Server if I use the IP address. The name does not resolve.

2. Flushed DNS and restarting DNS server. Flushing DNS works on one client, to allow browsing by the name & restarting DNS works on the other. However neither works after a restart.

3. Only my Wifi clients are experiencing this issue. My wired clients, desktops, PS3, Xbox 360, and Boxee can connect perfectly.

Via Device Manager as mentioned the WiFi adapter under Network is not there, scanning for hardware changes does not help.
I have tried manually installing inf files but I don't get any options under "Model" when I try to install it through legacy hardware.
I'm starting to think the Wifi/Bluetooth component is either faulty or entirely missing from the vendor (I have not opened it up and wouldn't know how to diagnose this myself).
I've attached a separate wifi dongle which works as does connecting to Ethernet via a USB adapter.

Do you have a bluetooth icon in your system tray?

You should be using this and then utilizing the bluetooth places folder to find and connect the device and then discover available services with that device.

If you don't have that icon, your missing the Widcomm stack, which you need before bluetooth functionality will happen. Search your manufacturer website for these drivers.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum, but I've got a question about bluetooth devices. This is gonna be a really dumb one. I have a newer laptop here that is wireless. In other words, I have a router and a small wireless network set up. I have the little blue button that lights up at the top of the keyboard. Is that bluetooth? I also have a wireless printer with that same icon lit up blue.

I have a new cellphone that is bluetooth and I want to make the phone and computer talk to each other to transfer pictures. I read that I need to go to "Bluetooth Devices" in the Control Panel to get things set up. However, I don't see that selection. So, do I have bluetooth or not?

Hello from Finland!, I'm a first time 'threader' (if that's a good term)..
Here's the problem, which I have been working on for many, many hours, to no avail!

I am using Windows xp home edition, with service pack 3, Amd athlon 64 cpu,
with an Asus A8N-E motherboard, the chipset of which is the nVidia nforce4 ultra.
Recently my chip fan went dead, although the computer still worked fine, I removed it (had to remove the graphics card, quite a few cables, then the motherboard to get behind it) and am in the process of getting the replacement (apparently the good folks at Asus know about these faulty fans), then I noticed that my speakers had gone dead. Everthing else is working fine. Pretty sure I've put it all back together again.
In sounds and audio devices it says 'no audio device', and in hardware my Realtek ac'97 is not listed. Also in device manager everthing is working properly, although again there is no Realtek listing.
Obviously I try to download the Ac'97 driver (I think it comes with the A8n-sli motherboard support cd) and then it comes up (in device mngr) but still doesn't work, and now there is an exclamation mark beside it in device manager, and it says that device will not work (code 10).

Hello,

I have two problems I need assistance with.

FIRST PROBLEM

1) I suddenly can't seem to generate a system health report with Vista. I
keep getting "an error occured while attempting to generate the report".
Before it worked now it does not. I always do a system health report almost
everyday. (I'm obsessed about the well being of my PC). I don't know what
triggered it, but here are some possible reasons I can think of:

A) I recently uninstalled my Mcafee trial software and then installed CA
Internet Security. I then received a series of Blue Screens. I quickly
uninstalled CA Internet Security and used Zone Alarm Free Firewall and AVG
antivirus. The operating system seems to be stable now (I haven't got a Blue
Screen since).

B) On July 25, 2007, I installed a recent update to Windows Vista. The
update is KB929547. (http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=929547).
Could this have something to do with it?

Some things I did to attempt fixing this problem myself include doing a
start up repair (using the F8 key before Windows loads). No problems found. I
did a Windows Memory test while I was there in the boot options. No problems
detected. I checked the hard drive for errors. No bad files and only a few
reparsed records.

The problem still exists.

===============================================
SECOND PROBLEM

2) I was doing some snooping in the "System Information" section. Under
"Components" and then "Pro... Read more

A:Can't generate system health report + problem device in Hardware & Devices

The first thing I'd try is just doing a System Restore to a date when you know it worked. Run rstrui.exe

You can also test the issue in Safe Mode.

If not possible, look in the Event Viewer (run evenvtvwr.msc and see if you can get any further information there.

I have no idea what that device is -- if you look in the Device Manager, do you see anything flagged there? Run devmgmt.msc

I currently have a Titan GT80 -009 laptop and cannot for the life of me get any of my devices to connect to this laptop. I turn on Bluetooth and it doesn't find anything while in pairing mode. I uninstalled the driver, re-installed..looked on google and turned off power saving for devices; changes service to auto instead of manual and nothing..

Device manager shows Bluetooth is running fine Qualcom Atheros QCA61x4 4.0 installed.

I really don't want to factory reset, i called MSI for support and that's all they told me to try doing...that's great tech support.

Any help is greatly appreciated..

A:No Bluetooth devices found..

Have you checked in Services to see if the "Bluetooth support service" is running?

Hi!
I have read a lot about problems on W7 with Bluetooth, but none of the solutions seem to apply to me. When I doubleclick on the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar the Bluetooth Devices window comes up, the green bar loads to 99% and nothing happens, even though I have 2 turned on Bluetooth devices near the dongle. I have also tried using the software (BlueSoleil) that came with the dongle, but that doesnt work either.
All the devices in the device manager are installed correctly (no unknown devices). I am using W7 Premium.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you

A:No Bluetooth devices found

Can you tell us what the two devices are that you are trying to connect?
Also can you fill out your system specs in your userCP

Just to tell that the Widcomm 5.1 provided on a link on this forum, does work fine and install very well through Windows Update for most of the bluetooth drivers...

Version on my Original CD Install is around 4.1 or 4.3 dated 2003, have an issue with tray control (windows pops up every time) and is buggy.

I'm with a PCMCIA Bluetooth TDK PC Card Type II, to transfert files and pictures with OBEX from a 3rd S60 platform mobile phone.

I didn't wanted to install a PC suite, just basic transfert from Phone to PC.

Widcomm 5.1 suit most of the bluetooth devices known by now.


I was looking back yesterday the post for the link and couldn't find it back. Orbital Shark may you have the link?

The purpose of this new thread.

Thanks.

A:Bluetooth Devices (Widcomm)

Have you tried the following:

Broadcom Corporation - Bluetooth Software Download

Using the Broadcom updater I managed to get a very recent version installed:

Bluetooth (WIDCOMM) driver v.6.2.0.8900 (22/04/2009) for Win7

The updater should work with all Broadcom based BT chipsets...

If WIDCOMM v.5.1 worked for you this might too...

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, running Vista 64 bit.
Wireless works fine.  I have never tried connecting with Bluetooth before.
I was looking for a portable speaker but they are all Bluetooth operable.
So, decided to see if my laptop connects with Bluetooth.
According to the configuration it does.
It has a Dell Wireless 1510 802.11n Half Mini Card.
I have a Bluetooth Devices file in my Control Panel but no devices that it connects with.
Does anyone have any suggestions or help?
 

A:PC does not recognize bluetooth devices

According to Dell, these are the specs for your wireless card.  As you can see, there is nothing to show that your wireless card has any Bluetooth capability.  Without more information, I cannot say why you would have a "Bluetooth Devices file" in your Control Panel.  Should you want me to look into this further, please post screenshots of your Control Panel and Device Manager windows.

Hi all! I have problems when i try to transfer files between my PC and other devices (mobile phones, PC's) via bluetooth.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and my bluetooth device is Generic Bluetooth Radio manifactured by Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.

Br,
John

Is there a program that allows me to un-pair Bluetooth devices BESIDES the Bluetooth tab in PC Settings?
I can NOT un-pair devices this way! Note that removing the device via Device Manager does NOT remove it, as it comes right back.

I had to buy a new Bluetooth adapter to re-pair my devices, but I got THE SAME ISSUE as before, and that is this.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, I can't do it like this:

And before anything, yes, I'm admin. Also note there is no on/off switch. Please explain this. Thanks.

A:Cannot Un-pair Bluetooth Devices

1 month later, any suggestions?

Basically:
Cannot un-pair via Device Manager (just simply comes back after uninstall, removal, and re-insertion of BT dongles).

I have a new Dell xps 8900 desktop. When I get on the Bluetooth it just circles and can never find any devices even though they are close by. Nothing in device manager seems out of place. Bought new with windows 10, hasn't worked yet. Something I'm not doing that should be obvious? Should I search the Bluetooth adapter and look for a driver update?
