I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there Tried to pair a Logitech Miniboombox on to a W virtual machine using vmware workstation The built in Bluetooth adapter didn't work but a USB bluetooth adapter could be attached to the VM and the device paired instantly Is bluetooth not supported natively by vmwware The USB adapter is just a get around - speakers USB only with work vmware card Bluetooth on would prefer to use the Native device if possible I see from the vmware site that the dialog only appears on the Host but I couldn't get the device to pair on the VM USB adapter -- no problem from the vmware site seems to imply that it SHOULD work without using a separate USB adapter LimitationsWorkstation and Fusion have these limitations for Bluetooth support Outgoing connections only A virtual machine may establish a connection to a remote Bluetooth device but remote devices do not see services that virtual machines try to advertise Virtual machines Bluetooth speakers only work with USB card on vmware cannot change the name class or discoverability of the host's Bluetooth adapter The host is exclusively in control over setting whether other Bluetooth devices can discover the host and what name it appears as The host is exclusively in control of the pairing process and collecting displaying PIN numbers The guest may scan for devices and initiate a connection with any device If pairing is required the pairing dialog box appears on the host not in the guest From the guest's perspective the device appears to pair without having needed a PIN Any vendor-specific capabilities on the host's Bluetooth radio are not passed through to the guest For example some radios provide a vendor-specific command to change their BDADDR These commands do not appear in the guest The guest sees a generic VMware-brand radio The virtual Bluetooth controller itself is not part of snapshots During snapshots it is disconnected and reconnected Any ongoing connections with Bluetooth devices are terminated at the time of a snapshot Cheers jimbo

I am trying to connect a Logtech wireless headset. I cannot find any settings for Bluetooth, or driver updates. On the bottom of the laptop I found the model number 15-1010wm. I tried connecting wth Control Panel>Devices and Printers, and the connect a device option. It found a phone, but not the headphones. In the summer I was looking in the settings and saw Bluetooth, either on my laptop or my siblings' (neither of them have Bluetooth options now). I have looked in Device Manager on mine and my siblings' laptop, and saw no Bluetooth. I have looked at multiple guides and none of them work. I know the headphones work because I connected them to my tablet.  Does anyone have any ideas or links to Bluetooth drivers that might help?

I want to port my bluetooth headset from my cellphone to PC for use with Skype.
The headset is I guess class 3 - 10 meter range.
Is there any advantage to getting a class 1 dongle for the PC? What effect will it have on range?

A:Bluetooth range

Not sure what the question is here really, most dongles are 1.1 compliant now anyway a grade 1 is more or less 100m range now depending on the price, which varies very little so the 100m would be my choice anyway. I run the Belkin F8T001 with my phone no problems at all. Your biggest problem is the phone as some of the older Bluetooth enabled ones could be a bit picky as to the dongles they connect to if they where not Data enabled. Rare though.

I would like to know on how to extend my bluetooth range. Like lets say I go on a daytrip to Boston or something, and I want to extend my bluetooth from all the way. Like how many miles is that? I saw a bluetooth transmitter on Ebay for like $150.00. Is it possible to extend the bluetooth like over a mile away? I really want to buy this usb transmitter on Ebay, but it is quite expensive. Will a tall antenna help the range as well? Just let me know if I can do that. So please get back to me asap on this. So thank you very much!

A:I would like to know on how to extend my bluetooth range please.

NO...bluetooth has limited range and both the transmitter and reciever has to be in close proximity to each other for the device to work properly.
Bluetooth devices can be in 3 different power classes:

Class 3 : The lowest power, the max. range of this is 10m (30 feet)
Class 2 : Max range is about 50m (150ft)
Class 1 : Max range is about 100m (300ft)

These ranges can be affected by environmental conditions i.e. furniture, walls, people so ranges can easily be reduced. Bluetooth is not a line of sight connection so it can be used through walls and floors.

reference link: Bluetooth range distance - Computer - Mobile Computing

Is it possible to boost bluetooth range?

Technically it's possible. You can achieve 1km (or better) range, but this is only possible between two transmitters/receivers. It is not possible to have 1km range in a bluetooth marketing sense. What's moreover, in many countries Bluetooth devices with output power stronger than 20dB (which is Class 1, 100m) are prohibited.
reference link: Bluetooth Range: 100m, 1km, or 10km?

Hi nbsp I got this laptop months ago and to be honest I'm quite nbsp disappointed with the wifi and bluetooth performance The first attempts to connect to my home wireless network were unsuccessful The laptop would detect a very Wifi range and conectivity/low Bluetooth low signal nbsp strength and would Bluetooth and Wifi conectivity/low range connect only when placed a few feet away from my AP Immediately I thought that it was an issue with the antenna maybe a disconnected cable I opened the laptop and to my Bluetooth and Wifi conectivity/low range surprise I found that there was only one antenna cable even when the card has two antenna connectors Main Aux and that it was connected Bluetooth and Wifi conectivity/low range to the Aux plug I nbsp swapped the antenna to the Main connector and nbsp immediately the wifi signal went from poor to excellent Unfortunately the bluetooth signal suffers from the same problem it only detects and connects to devices within a feet range I believe that this laptop comes with a Broadcom Wifi Bluetooth Combo board I would like to know which antenna does the Bluetooth use and if there is any possibility that I could add an aux antenna into the chassis to improve the connectivity nbsp Thanks in advance nbsp

I like Action/Adventure, RPG, MMORPG (WoW anyone?), FPS, etc., so I want as good of graphics as possible with my computer.

If you need any other specific info please tell me where to find it as i'm not a whiz with computers and especially laptops.

I think you might be **** out of luck, I hope you still have your reciept because as far as I know you cannot replace the video card on laptops - laptops are tightly saudered and jammed together as compact as possible

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

A:Wireless does not work with integrated card on laptop

What you have described sounds most like a software error, rather than hardware, probably created in the setup stage.
The usual trick is to remove all related software, edit the registry with a simple editor such as RegEdit or RegCleaner, then reboot and reinstall... after carefully examining the security on the master network... and WEP vs WPA setups.
Or use software such as Network Magic.
Be sure you have downloaded the latest drivers and firmware.

hey, here i have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo-pro v3405.
I recently installed vista home premium x86 on it, but after all drivers are installed. The only thing failing to start is my Intel 3945abg wireless network card.
I've checked the Unit list, petty I do not recall what it was called, anyway, it wont work. When I run diagnostics, all it says is, use the pre-made button to turn on your wireless network card. Guess what, I tried all the buttons for the wireless, but no. Won't work.
I did work fine in Xp though.

I have a D-Link Di-524 Router that is 2.4mhz and 802.11g. This router is wired to my PC in the office (second floor) and wired to my son's computer in the next room. I also have a laptop that I use on the first floor. Most days I get a good signal downstairs, but sometimes I have a low signal and depending on where I use it ie..Kitchen or livingroom I can sometimes loose the signal.

I would like to get an inexpensive range extender or wireless repeater. I have been looking at the Hawking wireless G range extender (HWREG1) or the Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender (F5D7132). Will both of these work with my exsisting system? Is one better than the other or should I go with something completely different? Thank you in advance for your advice, I appreciate the help.

A:Will these Range Extenders work?

I do not know about these specific extenders/repeaters, but, overall, I mostly hear about people who have been dissatisifed with the results (or lack thereof) from these types of devices. It seems like whatever type of interference caused the original connectivity problem(s) continued to do so with the extenders/repeaters. It could be that these devices are mostly intended to extend the distance of a good wireless connection and not to overcome other problems that the signals may be having in getting to your machine.

Looking at getting a Wireless B/G/N router that has removable antennae so that we can attach a range booster to it (Hawking). Trying to get signal to the house next door on our ranch - it's throwing distance.

My mom picked up a linksys N router but the antennae don't remove.

Hard to tell looking at pictures online.


A:Plz Suggest a Router to Work w/Range Booster

How far can you throw? Any N router ought to handle the length of a football field if there are no obstacles. Are you working line of sight, and what adapter(s) is at the other end?

I think that all Belkin routers do NOT have detachable antennas. In general D-Link routers do have detachable; the D-Link DIR-615 definitely has two detachable antennas, and is a pretty decent router.

Hi, dv29, and welcome to the forums.

The only compatibility issues you *should* run into is if your motherboard supports PCI-e 2.0 or not.

As for PSU requirements, visit eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Lite v2.5 and calculate it yourself...but be-warned, this will require some intimate knowledge of your computer components.

I just installed a new ATI Radeon 8500[128MB] video card and am now experiencing freezing with the error Out Of Range 23 kHz 37kHz. Sometimes the error appears at other times I just get a black screen. This happens while just browsing the internet, no games.

I have tried changing the display settings, screen resolution, refresh rate and increasing the DPI. I have now reverted back to the original settings. 800 x 600 85Hz 96 DPI.

Supported Video Modes are: 640 x 480 140 Hz
800 x 600 110 Hz
1024 x 768 85 Hz
1152 x 864 75 Hz
1280 x 1024 65 Hz

Yet I am unable to get a refresh rate above 85 Hz.

I also installed another 128MB of memory.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Kind Regards,

Specs in profile have not yet been updated.

OOps I think I posted this in the wrong forum feel free to move. Thanks.

A:New Video Card Error Out Of Range

What drivers are you using? and why would you want a refresh rate above 85hz? is the supported resolutions for the video card or your monitor? and if that si from display properties is the box " hide modes that this monitor cannot display" box checked?

I have a GTX 460 768mb and windows 7 64bit and I have had that for for a while. About 1 or two months ago, i started getting "Out of range" on my monitor. I fixed it by switching to another one and correcting resolution. About 3 weeks ago Battlefield Bad Company 2 would display out of range when trying to open it up. This was just random after restarting my computer. The problem started to get worse and now with the graphics card i cant do anything. Safe mode wont work with it in and switching to motherboard graphics works, but switching back doesn't. I have tried uninstalling drivers, but i cannot reinstall them due to me not being able to do anything with the card in. I want to see if it might be software related or hardware before i send it in to get it replaced. I have a 19 inch Westinghouse LCD monitor.

A:Out of range when installing graphics card

Sounds like a faulty video card OR a failing power supply. Test the card in another PC, that will determine for sure.

Aside from that, uninstall any drivers/software listed in Add and Remove programs. Specialized drivers are not needed for the card to work (and aren't used anyway in Safe Mode).

Hi all,

I am shortly upgrading my PSU to a 650w Corsair model. Bearing in mind my PCs specs which aren't great (old CPU/Motherboard) and it only runs PCI-E 1.1 I was wondering what a good choice of graphics card would be. I want to achieve as good a performance as possible in terms of gaming. I dont really use my PC for much else so its only with gaming in mind.

I don't want to upgrade my board and CPU and have about 120 to spend on the graphics card. Any recommendations for my specific spec of PC?

Thanks folks

Hi, Welcome to sevenforums.

Can you post your complete system configuration? Like your motherboard etc.

We would like to know what kind of slot your mobo has. AGP or PCIe.

If AGP, then I will suggest Radeon HD 3450 Video Card - 512MB, DDR2, AGP 8X, DVI, VGA, DirectX 10.1, Single-Slot. Price 69.99$

If PCIe, go to this link and check it out. - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, PCI Express x1, DirectX 11

Hi guys just wondered what you thought was a good laptop for the above price, not looking to spend more than 600 really.

Doesnt need to be amazing, the odd game on football manager, internet, office, etc... little bit of graphics, odd dvd, etc...

Thanks again and any reviews that you have with your current laptops would be cool for recommendations or possibly, what to avoid.

anyway for that price youd be looking at like an A8-4500M or an i5 as the cpu. The i5 is probably a little better for what basic things this laptop is for You might be looking for something like this.

Im not really hip to Intel performance but that seems like it would be just fine to me. Although you might wanna try a different brand, because if you are expecting it to last 8 years like your last one Acers do NOT have the best build quality. Ive had one sitting here for about a year and its still in great condition but I havent really travelled with it. THe lid is sort of flimsy.

My daughter recently gave me her old Palm Treo 650 cellphone. Apparently it is too old to "speak" (sync) with Windows 7 64 bit using their software but it can be done using bluetooth. The phone is bluetooth enabled and has an infared port, but my computer is lacking -- something -- to make the connection...what do I need? a USB dongle-thing? Something else?

A:What do I need for bluetooth to work?

Bluetooth is just a connection method. If it can't sync with Windows 7 64-bit using a USB sync cable, that isn't fixed by syncing with Bluetooth. You still need the Palm Desktop software or (maybe?) Outlook (not Windows Mail). If you want to attempt to connect the phone to the computer with Bluetooth, you need a Bluetooth USB dongle for your computer. I've never had much luck with Bluetooth data connections. Given the age of the device, the challenges are magnified.

Hello and welcome.
Well, your English was not that bad. I could still follow you basically.

Since you were able to connect the phone to the USB dongle, (correct?) then that means everything should be alright with the phone.

I believe the first thing you may need to do is click "Add a Device" to let them detect & identify each other. Once there is a profile created, then the next time you want to connect maybe click "Allow a Device to Connect." Try that and see if it works.

Acer laptops dont always come with the bluetooth modules installed, there sometimes sold as 'Bluetooth Ready' meaning you can buy an additional module for it. If you have a look for the exact model number underneath, I'll have a look about for you to see if it comes with one already installed.

Hi guys,

I am in search of a new mid-range (400-600) laptop, which will be used primarily for Word processing, email and Web browsing - so nothing too fancy.

However, the most important aspect is the battery..

At the moment I have a Compaq and the battery life is awful. Previously, I had a Dell and it could stay off charge for much longer.

So please, either give me the name/model of a very good/long lasting laptop battery that I can look out for, or recommend me a laptop that has good battery life.

Thanks guys, really appreciate it.

They will all suck after time, just make sure you're not running a battery down to dead and then charge it. Charge it before you need to, so to speak.

Honestly, I don't think any "stock" manufacturer battery will be extremely different than the other.

I have a CSR bluetooth dongle. It initially worked but has stopped recently. It connects to a Nokia E71 phone.

In my Device Manager there is an entry "CSR Bluetooth Radio" under "Bluetooth radios", and under "Other devices" there are four entries titled "Bluetooth Peripheral Device". Presumably there is no suitable driver.

I applied the update "CSR plc - Audio - Bluetooth Remote Control Device" on the 19.1.10. Maybe this is the source of the problem???

I tried inserting another bluetooth device but have had exactly the same problem with it.

I've managed to connect to my phone with Ubuntu Linux on the same hardware - connected to the same phone.

I've tried setting the phone up as a new bluetooth device with the same result. I've also tried uninstalling all of the bluetooth drivers and reinstalling them - no joy.

I recently just bought a msi z87 mpower Intel motherboard and it came with a blue tooth adapter. now for some reason I can not enable the device. there is no wireless tab under the change pc settings in pc settings however it is listed under device manager. it says every thing is correct with the driver and when I go to control panel and go to devices and printers the Bluetooth device is not there. I even did a fresh install of windows 8. not sure how to fix this one.

thanks, have a nice day

Hi Ahmed

Open up a command prompt . Click on the button type CMD , right click and choose Run as administrator . Input the commands below

wmic bios get serialnumber
So I could see which driver goes to your specific model

Hi all!

I have bought a HP 6730b notebook (type: HP KU216ET), it has got built-in Bluetooth. I have installed 32bit Windows 7, but the bluetooth doesn't work. I cannot find any driver to make that working good..

HP Compaq 6730b Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center - here is a driver for XP, but when I install, it said that I have to turn on Bluetooth... I don't know what to do...

I don't know what's the type of the built-in Bluetooth, maybe broadcom, I tried this driver: - Bluetooth Software Download

but there's the same message while install: Turn on Bluetooth...

What can I do? I have a bluetooth mouse, so I need to make bluetooth working good...

Thx a lot!


A:Bluetooth doesn't work

Look in "Services" and see if it's enabled.
Type services.msc in the start search box, then click on the gear icon.

Hi all,

Question is as per the subject line but the reason I ask is that although each laptop is visible to the other in Devices and Printers when I try to send a file from the Vista laptop to the Win 7 laptop I get a message failure message. On the Win 7 machine when I click the the bluetooth icon in the systray the option to 'Allow a Device to connect' is greyed-out and there is no alert that a device is trying to connect. A far as I can tell the bluetooth settings on both laptops are OK, adding a device was OK with the passwork handshake completed without problem.

Is this a driver issue, settings issue, or summat else?

Couple of questions

Are you using "homegroup" for networking?

Is there no other way you can transfer like wifi (its faster)?

Heya first time here so hi I'm having a very hard time searching proper information on my quest to get an automatic vnc session opening on my PC's second monitor as soon as my laptop connects to the vnc range laptop in when session wireless Auto-open gets same LAN network as my PC Both windows XP I have no problems at all setting up a VNC connection but I find it impossible to get an automation solution that detects my Auto-open vnc session when laptop gets in wireless range laptop on the network and connects to it All search results are obviously about setting up wireless and setting up vnc which comes up with the same search criteria My goal is as follows A non-technical person with a dual monitor windows XP PC automatically gets access to the laptop Almost as if the second monitor would get replugged into the laptop This as soon as the laptop running a vnc server connects to the same LAN network I have tried to find any way of automatically running an application when a connection is established with the network but found nothing but autoconnect issues instead S All clues are very much welcome I don't really expect anyone to have a complete solution to all above Thanks

A:Auto-open vnc session when laptop gets in wireless range

VNC itself doesnt have a option that will allow for what you are asking. The only way this can be done would be the hard way i.e. use 3rd party software or scripts that constantly ping the laptop and as soon as it connected, start vnc.

Above is an idea and i dont have the scripting knowledge to comment on whether its possible or not, maybe someone else on here knows. Goods Luck.

Hello all nbsp I've had my Envy t for just under HP Envy Bluetooth to work Intel Can't get - 15t a year now It came with Windows Pro -bit and has been running bluetooth with no issues since new I've recently re-formatted with nbsp the same OS and had no trouble re-installing all but one of the drivers Intel Bluetooth The computer currently recognizes the hardware as 'Generic Bluetooth Adapter' 'Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator' nbsp nbsp The issue I am having is with that setup adding any device which should be 'plug' and play say a bluetooth speaker will result in an unrecognized 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device' The solution I found which worked on a friend's computer was to obtain the bluetooth driver from the laptop manufacturer and install it After the install nbsp everything worked nbsp as it's supposed to and he can stream bluetooth audio with no issues happy days nbsp However on my HP Envy t no nbsp version of Intel's Pro Wireless Bluetooth driver software package will install I always run into the exact same error at the same point during the installation nbsp I have tried getting the software from Intel directly through Intel's upgrade utility directly from HP and through HP Support Assistant all to no avail The error is as follows - There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected Contact your support personnel or package vendor nbsp When clicking 'OK' the setup 'rolls back' the installation and goes back to square one I have noticed that if I keep the error dialog open and don't allow it to roll back the bluetooth seems to work labelled as 'Intel Bluetooth Adapter' in Device Manager and the device can scan for and find discoverable devices nbsp Has anyone run into this issue or can someone recommend how to proceed Many thanks

Hi Recently I acquired a Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse It works perfectly well both on my Android tablet and on my old but efficient Netbook still running valiantly under XP SP Never a does work Mouse not Bluetooth desktop on Win 10 problem in pairing the mouse on these two machines and no problem either with the Logitech Bluetooth portable keyboard K which is a Bluetooth Mouse does not work on Win 10 desktop real marvel in its own right On the Android Lollipop tablet Bluetooth is built in while the built-in Bluetooth feature on the Netbook gave up some time ago but was replaced by a dongle Bluetooth Mouse does not work on Win 10 desktop which does its job without a hiccup So far so good On my desktop running on Windows which has no built-in Bluetooth capability but the Bluetooth quot service quot coming with Windows I use the same dongle as on the Netbook With the Logitech keyboard mentioned above no problem whatsoever Bluetooth quot sees quot it immediately and pairs it in seconds - so there is certainly nothing wrong either with the dongle or with pairing a device or the Bluetooth drivers and softwares which came with the dongle or with the Windows Bluetooth properties which are correctly started and functioning It's the Microsoft Mouse that presents an apparently intractable problem on that same desktop When activating the Mouse so that it can be detected when one wants to add a device it is quot seen quot almost immediately It is when wanting to pair the device to the machine that the problem arises The pairing as such takes a far longer time than it normally does and when that operation concludes I get error messages saying either that the mouse did not send the correct pairing code OR that it did not send a pairing reaction at all So this is quite mysterious Having a device that functions perfectly well with other machines and not at all on my powerful desktop while it can be detected and while other devices function normally I guess that the problem resides with that quot code quot However Windows does not ask for it and Microsoft says that the mouse does not need one - which makes things even more strange since it mentions a code when the pairing misfires Attached some screenshots They are in Dutch language of my Win OS but the images speak for themselves The error message on the rd screenshot says quot Communication with Bluetooth device has failed No pairing reaction received quot Sometimes after bootup the error message says failure but quot Bluetooth device sends wrong code quot I wonder if someone will find a solution to this riddle Best haku

A:Bluetooth Mouse does not work on Win 10 desktop

I have 2 Notebooks with Bluetooth and find that having their own mouse works much better/more reliably than switching 1 mouse from one to the other. I also have a Bluetooth mouse on my MacBook Pro. Two of the mice are from Microsoft and the third is from Targus. I also have a Bluetooth dongle on a Win7 computer for pairing my phone and PDA. It is important to have the drivers for the Bluetooth dongle. The Notebook Bluetooth adapters are part of the Wi-Fi adapter.

The Bluetooth BT mouse of my laptop with build-in BT module seems to work just does why work? .... Bluetooth it works, mouse but fine However I don't understand why the Bluetooth mouse works because in the Controlpanel Network and Internet Network Connections the Adapter Bluetooth Device Personal Area Bluetooth mouse works, but .... why does it work? Network is DISABLED On the other hand in Device Manager- gt Bluetooth Radios there are two entries Bluetooth Module Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator MBE If I disable only the MBE then the BT mouse stops working If I disable Bluetooth mouse works, but .... why does it work? the Bluetooth Module then MBE disappears all together and the mouse stops working too So it is the MBE that controls the mouse but what is then the relationship between the MBE and the Bluetooth Adapter in Controlpanel Network And Internet Network Connections Are MBE and the Bluetooth Adapter in Network Connections two parallel Bluetooth structures stacks alongside each other Or does the Bluetooth Adapter sits on a higher level and get access to the Bluetooth hardware module of the laptop through the two Bluetooth Radio entries in Device Manager I've been reading about the OSI model and trying to figure out what Bluetooth components in Windows sit where exactly in the OSI model but it remains fuzzy to me how Bluetooth Device Manager components relate to the Bluetooth Network Adapter Can anyone shed some more light on the relationship between the Bluetooth Device Manager components and the Bluetooth Adapter Any info about websites or docs with some in-depth content about the relationship could help too Thanks in advance johan

A:Bluetooth mouse works, but .... why does it work?


I see you didnt get a reply.

As far as I remember The connection listed on the network connections page as Blue tooth Pan is a Network Connection allowing you to connect to the internet say via a smart fone or other bluetooth enabled device with an internet connection.

Blue devices such as a mouse or keyboard are listed on the devices page

Hope this helps
