I am starting to work/fiddle with Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE (BLE, Low Energy). I want to use Bluetooth for communication between Windows 10, Android and ESP32.
I bought Bluetooth cards and USB adapters for my Windows 10 PC but they seem to work only in part and the manufactures descriptions are very limited.
I am looking for Windows software which shows the capabilities of Bluetooth devices (i.e. PCE-Card, USB-Adapter, etc.). I want to know which Bluetooth version is supported and maybe other Bluetooth details.
I checked for similar questions and I found i.e. this question: Bluetooth version and capabilities of a USB adapter The suggested tool in the answer shows nothing on my PC and the question and answers are years old.
I installed the ASUS PCE-AC55BT card in my PC which has WLAN and Bluetooth. The description only shows: "Bluetooth 4.0 and BLE" and no more details.
I also tested a no-name USB adapter which is supposed to support BLE but it seems it doesn't support it. That's what some software tells me. But I don't know if the software just does not recognize the Bluetooth device or driver or the Bluetooth device does not work correctly and maybe it needs other or additional drivers.
I found already one USB adapter with lots of functionality and I ordered it already. But that will take time before it arrives and likely it won't show me the capabilities of other Bluetooth adapters. https://www.nordicsemi.com/Software-and-Tools/Development-Kits/nRF52840-Dongle/GetStarted
