Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

Hi guys, just had the come problem for months until now. I've just manually changed the drivers of the Bluetooth module (Atheros) on my PC to "Generic Bluetooth Adpater", these are from Microsoft, and in seconds I've connected my N8 to Nokia Suite through bluetooth successfully.

 

Hope this can help some of you.

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

That link didn't work for me anymore, but here is a currently working one:

 

http://www.download-source.de/1758412/ASUS-P8P67rev30-Atheros-AW-AR3011-Bluetooth-Driver-Package/

 

Anyway, Atheros AW_AR3011 is essential when searching for this. Probably this works for many Bluetooth handsfree devices.
