how do i connect bluetooth devices on my ac 7260?


I have just installed my ac 7260 in my computer, and the wifi works fine, but I bought this card because I wanted to be able to use bluetooth enabled devices on my computer.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to even access any bluetooth settings or connect any devices via bluetooth from my "add devices" window in the control panel.

I have installed the latest driver from "https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25137 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25137", restarted my computer, and tried again. no luck.

help? I've got a ps3 controller, with all proper drivers installed, AND a smart phone, set to discoverable, but still no luck.

Hello burrito,

You might be experiencing a system incompatibility with this wireless adapter and unfortunately, Intel does not support integration which is when the original wireless adapter is replaced for another one. Please keep in mind that Intel does not sell wireless adapters to end-users. We recommend that you contact the computer manufacturer for further assistance as they are the only ones that can provide you the list of approved adapaters that are compatible with their system.
