The Bluetooth functionality was not affected in my Hades Canyon by the Windows update. So, please recheck if Bluetooth is not switched OFF and/or use the Troubleshooter to find the problem.
Leon's luck notwithstanding, other folks have reported this phenomena.
I suggest that you try a clean WLAN install. Here is proper process for performing a clean WLAN Install:
- If you haven't already, download - but do not install just yet - the latest Bluetooth and WiFi drivers for your adapter. Here are links to these drivers: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29876 and https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29849.
- Disable Internet access. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable wireless. Keep disabled until told to re-enable.
- From Apps & Features, check for instances of Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel Wireless Bluetooth. If none, skip to step 6.
- Uninstall each instance present. When prompted, choose to "Discard Settings".
- Manually reboot your computer.
- In Device Manager, check Network Adapters for an entry for Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265. If none, go to Step 9.
- Right click on the entry for Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 and uninstall it, choosing to "Delete the driver software for this device".
- Go to Step 5.
- (Optional but recommended) Clean out all temporary files using the Windows Clean Disk tool. I recommend that you checkmark all categories offered, even if no files currently (so it leaves it set up for next invocation).
- (Optional but recommended) Clear each of your browsers' cache.
- Install the Bluetooth driver package (rule: always do Bluetooth first).
- Install the Wireless driver package.
- Manually shutdown and reboot your computer.
- Enable Internet access.
Hope this helps,
"I do not even have Bluetooth in devices. And I do not even have button to turn it off or on." If your O.S. is Windows 10, than you have Bluetooth button: Windows Settings Devices > Bluetooth & other devices (see the attached image )
You don't have the Bluetooth toggle, since probably the Bluetooth is disabled.
1. Enter BIOS - click on F2 during boot when you see the intel NUC logo.
2. In Advanced > Devices > Onboard Devices, check the Bluetooth.
3. Click on F10 followed by "Y" to save settings and exit.
4. Even better, you may set the BIOS settings to defaults - instead of enabling Bluetooth only (see para 2 above), while in BIOS, click on F9 followed by Y and then F10, confirmed by "Y".
