I have this HP G7-1260CA that doesn't detect the bluetooth adapter I put in it.
I've purchased a WIFI card from HP, that is a combo wifi-bluetooth card, model BCM94313HMGB
The Broadcom BCM94313HMGB is a mini PCI-E card made up from a BCM2070 bluetooth module and a BCM4313 WLAN module.
I've tried installing the broadcom bluetooth software from http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php but it says no bluetooth card is found. I've also tried installing the BCM2070 drivers found on hp's site for another model, no dice.
I've found out that wireless connections are managed by HP connection manager on this model. Installed it, it doesn't talk about bluetooth, just wifi and wired connection.
Am i missing something here ? Wireless switch on the laptop is on, the wifi portion of the card works.
Here's a pic of the card : img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=DF2403.jpg&username=montrealappletech&aid=800123462
That's what i have, on the card you see a BT MAC: so there's def. a bluetooth portion on the card !
I was wondering if the HP connection manager i've downloaded from the laptop's support page had the bluetooth portion ripped out because the laptop didn't come with BT.. But that would be odd
Anyone has a clue on this one ? Thanks a lot !!!
I'm installing bluetooth on this laptop because it has a fried USB controller, and need an external mouse.
EDIT ; From the G7 maintenance and service guide, http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02834058.pdf
It seems this card i have installed is in the whitelist. Why isn't it working?
