hi! i'm having issues with my thinkpad t480s running windows 11's bluetooth. i can pair devices just fine, and both devices register the other as paired, but only my PC registers devices as connected. on the other device, it says my PC is paired but disconnected, and if i try to connect it it says it can't connect.

i've updated my drivers through windows update, lenovo, and intel. i went into the BIOS and disabled and reenabled bluetooth, to no avail. i've uninstalled the bluetooth adapter through device manager and reinstalled it. i ran the bluetooth troubleshooter multiple times-every time, it says it fixed "check bluetooth radio status" but it doesn't seem to do anything. help
