whats the best possible (Internal) wifi adapter+bluetooth card avaible

Q: whats the best possible (Internal) wifi adapter+bluetooth card avaible

i have been through about 3 wifi cards in the spand of 2 laptops looking for the best range and speed without the interference. i had a realtek dualband wifi card with bluetooth and i sold that to get a a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 expecting that this would be the top of the line in wifi standards. i mainly sold my realtek because a issue with buletooth, if im using the wifi and i connect my bluetooth headset to the laptop the sound would be choppy and laggy. so when i got my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 i was amazed that this "was" no longer the issue. i connected my HBS-900 and walked out my apartment and down the hall and the bluetooth was clean! but it seems that now perhaps driver change the bluetooth on my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is also bad. i cant even step 2 feet away from my laptop without it cracking to hell, at 3 feet and not facing the laptop i disconnect. it was never like that before and i know its not my headset because when i connect it to my phone its flawless, and i connected another bluetooth adapter and tried and its fine. the issue is that when the wifi is on theirs too much interference and yes when i connect to a 5g network the issue is greatly reduced but for me 5g is mostly not a option. i was wondering if theirs a such thing as a shielded internal wifi? wouldn't think so... i would just love if i could use the bluetooth and the wifi flawlessly. i already for another reason plan to get a Alfa AC1200 external wifi adapter for a desktop but i would rather not use that for my laptop

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.

I've got an older laptop with an internal Ethernet 10/100 NIC card and a 2.4g wireless adapter.
I now have an ISP Internet package that provides up to 250mb download speeds. However I can never get over 100mb as it seems both my internal wired and wireless max out at 100mb.

If I purchase a usb wireless ac adapter that can handle download speeds of 300mb @ 2.4g and & 800+mb @5g will:
1) I get the speeds I'm paying for (up to 250mb download) or
2) the fact my PC's internal NIC (network interface card) max is 100mb that's all I can expect?

In other words, does a usb wireless ac dual band adapter work independent of all other network devices on one's PC to provide the best Internet speed or is the speed still throttled by one's PC internal NIC card limitations.

I just updated my laptop to Win10 and my bluetooth stopped working. I looked in the Device Manager and there was no bluetooth driver installed, so I thought that I just had to install it. I ran Windows Update to see if it would automatically find and download it for me, it didn't. So then I went to my manufacturer's page and downloaded the driver from there. The installation went fine and it said that it downloaded and installed successfully. After a quick reboot Device manager still said I didn't have any Bluetooth drivers installed. My manufacturer's site had different bluetooth adapters for my laptop so I thought I downloaded the wrong one. After installing the rest of them and rebooting Device manager still said that I had none installed, this leads me to assume that somehow the operating system isn't recognizing that I have any bluetooth hardware at all. So now I'm out of Ideas and thought I'd throw away my pride as a tech-savvy person and ask for help.

I am using a Dell Inspiron 15 (5547 model) running Windows10 (recently upgraded from 8.1)

The manufacturer's site I got the drivers from is here Product Support | Dell US

*Edit* Forgot to mention that it was a clean install.

Hi there, i just got my DV9543cl and am quite loving it i can even play gothic 3 on almost maxed out settings, something that i dint expect from the 8600M GS card, altough not a 1440 resolution.
However my main problem is that i need to put bluetooth to the laptop as it only came with the wifi option.
i thought that i could upgrade to the "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection and Bluetooth" card, in order to have wifi + bluetooth internally.
HP help/support advise me that i cannot upgrade this laptop to a internal wifi+bluetooth.
Can anyone share some wisdom to this? Is there an internal card i can use to install bluetooth to the laptop? mainly i need bluetooth for my connectivy with phone and also a bluetooth wireless mouse, so no extra devices hang out the laptop ports.

any ideas, much appreaciated .

thanks

The Guru's at HP say No... Go to some laptop parts websites and see if there is a 3rd party Bluetooth card available for your HP model. Do a Google search. If Blutooth is not an option for your model, I'm afraid that you are out of luck.

Shouldn't you have checked for the Blutooth option before you purchased the HP laptop?

My desktop computer loses connection regularly and I cannot locate as to why. I have many other devices throughout the house at various locations which maintain a connection fine.

When the connection drops it still displays I am connected, but there is clearly no connectivity.

I've tried toggling between two devices, one an eternal PCI adapter and the other a USB adapter. I get interruptions on both, so my conclusion is there must be a setting causing this.

The desktop has been moved to other locations just in case of interference, and I've tried channel swapping as well.

A:Network interruptions with both internal and usb wifi adapter.

I would suggest choosing a single wifi device and uninstalling any wifi utilities that you have installed, or drivers for any other wifi device (including disconnecting them).

This is for a work computer, that I'm 99% sure someone with monkey hands messed up. Now I'm stuck trying to get it fixed.

When I try connecting to a wifi network, the computer attempts to connect for half a beat, and tells me that windows was unable to connect to the network.

I turned off the firewall, there isnt a virus scanner running, and I updated the internal wifi drivers. I even tried using my external USB wifi adapter.

I was able to tether his cell phone to the computer briefly. As far as I knew, he was able to connect that way. He just told me today that the tethered connection doesn't always work,

So whatever is going on, I assume has something to do with a windows software setting. Any ideas?

I can't do a system restore because there is some proprietary software installed that would take an act of congress to get reinstalled.

I have an Acer Aspire One Nav 50 with windows 7 starter 32 bit. I recently did something stupid and ended up having to completely re-install windows.

The Wireless works sometimes but it usually is not working. It basically seems like it is turned off, it shows that there are no networks available even though there are. I have used Device Manager to update the drivers a few times. I also deleted the drivers and let them re-install like that. It is an Atheros AR5B93.

The internal SD card doesn't work at all. When i put a card in nothing happens and it doesn't show up in "Computer". But When i have a card in it and go to device manager it shows up under "Other Device" (something like that) and the number UB6250. I've tried updating the drivers for every USB Device that shows up in device manager.

Everything works ok except the wireless and the internal SD reader. I had no problems with them before the reinstall of windows. The normal USB ports work fine. Windows is at SP1.

thanks for any help

Hello,

I recently bought a mini PCI-e mPCI express Wireless to USB adapter Wireless card (w/SIM) hoping to plug my Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n wifi adapter into it so I could make it more portable to get a better signal. Nothing happened prolly because there's no drivers for it.

I know nothing about wireless adapters so Im sure im missing something. I just basically want to turn my internal wifi into external USB and need a help. All i bought was this Mini PCI-e mPCI Express Wireless to USB Adapter Wireless Card With SIM Card Slot - Newegg.com (Someone ive known online for awhile suggested it but i may not even need this)

After doing a little research it seems this works with WWAN which i think is like 3g/4g cell phone stuff. But to reiterate all i want to do is turn my internal Atheros wifi adapter into external be it USB or whatever.

I have been trying to fix the issue for a few months now - got a new laptop for Christmas and the problem has been since day 1.

When booting, WIFI and Bluetooth are greyed out and I cannot use them. I consequently need to restart the computer a few times until it works. It also happens sometimes when booting from sleep.

The issue happens with BOTH Windows 10 and Linux (Elementary OS).

I asked Asus (I have a UX310UA) about it and they suggested to delete and reinstall the Wifi adapter's driver from control panel - if it doesn't work, it should be a hardware issue according to Asus Support. I was not aware of Bluetooth having the same problem until recently.
I don't believe it's a hardware issue and that's why I'm reaching you.

I also tried to reinstall the driver manually but I don't know if I succeeded though.

Any help would be wonderful !

I certain its a hardware issue but i was just curious. don't they both broadcast on the 802.11 band (is it called a band?)? so why wouldn't they be capable of either or? (i know bluetooth uses smaller wave lengths and wifi larger, that much i do know) it would probably be impractical to try wifi on bluetooth band as you would get severely reduced performance. but why not bluetooth on wifi band?

A:Why isnt a wifi adapter capable of bluetooth transmissions?

wouldn't work and in the US the FCC wouldn't allow it. antenna length is a function of frequency so wifi and is abt 6" bluetooth is abt 1" thats one reason wifi has a longer range

At this time they all have 4g RAM and 1Tb hhd installed.

I would not like to have anything sticking out of the side of the computer that needed to be removed that might get lost. Can I replace the internal WiFi + Bluetooth 3.0 adapter to pickup the speed and both bands? If so, can anyone tell me what adapter I need to me looking for and what driver.

Hi Roxanne,

Welcome to the forum.

Some laptops have a switch near to the keyboard so that you can switch it on or off

You could take the old network card out of the laptop,

You could also go to Device Manager Right click on your Network adapter and select disable.

I hope this helps

Hello everybody, I have a thinkpad S540 with an Intel Wireless-N 7260 since 1 year ago.

I am building a car PC out of an AMD E350 motherboard (link below...), which has mini PCIe & SO-DIMM slots as opposed to standard expansions & RAM. It is a simple, low power system, ideal for the application. I believe Win8 is the perfect platform for the application as well, since it works nicely with a touchscreen-oriented interface.

I bought a WiFi/bluetooth combo card off of eBay (link also below), but thus far, the WiFi isn't working. The BT works fine, but the wireless does not.

I verified that the driver is installed & working in Device Manager, but Windows does not give me the option to connect to a wireless network. In my Network Connections dialog, it only shows the wired LAN and the BT.

I am willing to accept the fact that the wireless driver is not compatible with Win8, but also wonder if it is a problem with the card?

A:Trouble with WiFi/Bluetooth card

*update*

Actually, I just double checked, and the driver is NOT installed for the Wi-Fi card. I was looking at the driver for the regular LAN controller. I was tricked because it is a MoBo integrated LAN controller, but the driver labels it as a Realtek PCIe.

I did download the driver exe from Realtek and I also tried the one from HP. Neither seems to load the WiFi functionality of this card.

Also, if it helps, the card is a Realtek branded for certain HP laptops.

I have tried all the trouble shooting solutions but unfortunately my magic F8 button will not enable let alone show the option when ghosted! I took my keyboard off and verified the Realtek RTL8191SE is in fact there however next to Network adapters only the PCIe FE Family Controller is listed.

I recently tried to download the Fix offered by Toshiba and Windows, restarted my computer and it is still not recognizing my Wi Fi. Please tell me its an easy fix or just that I need to buy a new card!!! Any advice is greatly appreciated. But please give me the Windows for Dummies version because again I have no clue what I am doing.

Thanks again for any help offered!

Under network adapters, I included all the "Hidden Devices" in the screen capture! However the Family Controller is the only one listed otherwise.

Upgrading several T61s both with CPUs and WIFI cards.  Have some with bluetooth some not.  Bluetooth card is inside display screen and would prefer to leave that alone.  Was looking at replacing current b/g wifi cards with a faster one and if possible a combo wifi and bluetooth card.  Will install middleton BIOS to get around whitelist.Will be running Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 Ultimate in the T61s1.  Will the Intel Wireless-AC 7265 cards work with both wifi and bluetooth in the T61s?2.  Can I somehow disable either the existing bluetooth adapters or the bluetooth in the 7265 cards so I do not get conflicts with 2 bluetooth adapters.I am assuming I can download the drivers for the new adapters from the internet.

A:Will a T61 with middleton BIOS support an Intel Wireless-AC 7265 wifi and bluetooth card?

The cards and sockets are physically a different size.

My wife got a HP17-g121 laptop and when trying to connect to our 5g dual band router I realized the adapter does not work with 5g and I want to replace it, what make and model will work best in doing so? Also, for some reason the 2.4g band will barely get me 25Mps download speeds where on my HP the 5g gets me closer to the 150Mps I am suppose to be getting, any reason for that?

Do you happen to know the name of the driver?

It will be on the CD that came with the product.

Look on the CD for the driver and please reply with the name of the folder containing the driver.

It will be something like "RTL8188SU"

Seems the Realtek 2x2 11bgn Wirelss **bleep** M2 Adapter that came with the T440P cannot work with 5Ghz ? I have seen articles claiming that the card cannot be replaced and others suggesting it can (but only if on a Whitelist ?).  Anybody know the answer to this? And assuming I can change the card, any recommendations ?

Hey,
I have two problems so i will explain the scenario then number out the issue. I had a new hard drive installed, when i booted the laptop, it worked well. The wifi in my area is very low so I was told I can use a wireless adpter to "boost" the signal strength received. I was given a Encore ENUWI-N3 Wireless Adapter to use. I installed the utility program from the official website and the computer still did not recognise the device, so I deleted the program. I then lost connection to the internet, and at the time i thought the wifi can dropped (i later realised that was not the case since my phone's wifi was still connected). I then reinstalled the software ( the executible file was saved on the harddrive), and it give me the same message that there are no drivers for the adapter.

I shifted my attention to my failed internet connection, after troubleshooting it give me a error 28 message stating that there were no drivers installed for the Broadcom wireless adapter that is internally installed. I tried a system restore to before i tried installing the Encore adapter, and still nothing, the system continued to give me the same message and it registered in the "device manager" as unknown device named "ethernet controller" with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. I have been able to borrow a laptop and download the LAN adapter fron the ACER support website, and although it had no "set up.exe" file visible i was able to get... Read more

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

It looks like neither of the drivers above support bluetooth in Windows 10 Home 64-bit, but someone might be able to help.

The WiGig card's driver is the latest, and the 3YX8R cannot be detected by any means!
Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot.

Hello Every once in a while, my Microsoft bluetooth mouse stops working. Then I check the bluetooth device in the Windows device manager and it is no longer there, as if my laptop didn't have bluetooth at all. The only work-arround is to reboot. Then it works for a while, can be days or sometimes maybe even weeks before it stops working again. I found this article https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/ht506394 which seems to describe my problem. Unfortunately, the proposed solution doesn't work as my driver is already up to date (20.100.0.4) Any idea?

Hi !!
I am having a bluetooth adapter installed on my PC. Now I wanted to connect my Samsung HM1100 headset with it. It paired and everything but during installation of driver it says "NO DRIVER FOUND". I have tried too many times and I have also installed a bluetooth driver "SILICON WAVE BLUETOOTH DRIVER".
Actually its a dongle I'm having. So it didn't require any drivers but it won't connect to my bluetooth headset.
Help will be appreciated.

Hello.

I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter - Version 4.0 Class 2 Smart Ready Adapter (Model No. MUA-BA3). Let me explain...

Okay, I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows 7 operating system. Now, when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer, it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ?ON?. Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device(s) (example: a Smartphone) to connect which they do successfully. When I am done using the Bluetooth technology, I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows 7 operating system, I go into my Windows 7 system tray/notification area and select ?Turn Adapter OFF?. I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows 7 system tray/notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer. Okay, so far so good ? everything is normal.

However, when I shutdown my Windows 7 operating system and then restart the computer at some later point, I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows 7 system tray/notification area as OFF (okay ? normal); BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH AD...

Hi, can you give a 20 word or less problem summary please, I got lost in those wordy details.

I am no BT expert or anything, but all I read was complaining about a light being on, which a piece of black electrical tape fixes around my house, regularly *cough* fire alarms.

If the maker of the device doesn't have a solve to your issue... that is usually the end of the road with a cliff.

Hi, I have a XPS 13 9343 (i5/QHD) purchased refurbished from 3rd party, recently installed clean W10.
The Dell tool indicates to me that I should be installing:
9343_Network_Driver_WD22T_WN32_7.35.333.0_A03.EXE
Installing I get failure log at the bottom.
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.
Any other ideas of what it could be? Thanks.
