I recently purchased Intel 6235 miniPCI card and installed on my computer with latest Intel ProSet drivers. Wifi works great, however Bluetooth is not working. I tried reinstalling Windows7, installing bluetooth driver first (as suggested in some article on intel.com) then installing wifi driver, but nothing works. Under device manager > network adapters > intel centrino advanced-n 6235 > properties it shows bluetooth(r) AMP (values: enable/disable).
Note that the Intel(R) WiFi Link 6235 adapter is meant to be professionally installed by Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) technicians on certified systems only.
Please note that these adapters are not meant to be sold separately, your system must be compliant with the required FCC certifications in compliance with the International Special Committee for Radio Interference standards for radiated and conducted electromagnetic interference.
In this case what we recommend and encourage you to first contact the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to determine if the product is approved for use in your computer.
Installing an aftermarket wireless adapter in your laptop can cause several issues which may affect usage of the wireless adapter or laptop. Some of these issues may include the following:
- The OEM may have installed the wireless adapter with a lock to prevent installation of another adapter.
- Your adapter may not be electrically compatible with your laptop that may cause the adapter and/or your laptop to no longer function.
- Wireless hardware installation and use is subject to regulatory approval, and the adapter purchased may not support your local regulations.
For additional information, refer to:

try looking for a tool that your Laptop vendor should have made available, HP calls that HP Connection Manager and needs to be installed and running to switch on the Bluetooth. You still need to have BT enabled in the BIOS of course.
