Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 without bluetooth?

I have a Thinkpad T460p with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260.

Thing is, supposedly this card does have Bluetooth integrated, but I can't find any Bluetooth entry under Device Manager. I did verify in the BIOS for the Bluetooth to be enabled and did also installed this driver BT_20.60.0_64_Win7.exe

These are the Hardware IDs:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24F3&SUBSYS_01308086&REV_3A

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24F3&SUBSYS_01308086

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24F3&CC_028000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24F3&CC_0280

Driver version is 19.10.2.1 from 10/10/2016.

Is there a 8260 card without bluetooth or what am I missing here?

Hello, AlfredoG. Thank you very much for sharing your issue with the Intel Communities Team. I will be more than glad to assist you.

 

 

Firstly, allow me to inform you that the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 has the Bluetooth integrated. As per your system specifications, it has Bluetooth integrated through the Intel® Wireless card (cf. https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-t-series/ThinkPad-T460p/p/22TP2TT460P ThinkPad T460p Enterprise Laptop, Tech Specs section).

 

Then, I would like to clarify, are you able to use the Bluetooth? or it is just not appearing in the Device Manager?

 

Furthermore, what is the Operating System installed on your laptop?

It turned out to be the Fn+F8 key to enable the Radio, that's why it was not showing up in Dev Mgr.
