Bluetooth reduces WiFi speed

Q: Bluetooth reduces WiFi speed

I purchased this laptop new. Wifi works fine with even 50MB speed. Videos buffering seamlessly. But if I connect a bluetooth headset or mouse or my phone, Wifi stopped receiving the signal, movies stopped playing and I have to disconnect the bluetooth to get it back. I'm facing this problem from Day-1. I have enabled automatic update in the HP support assistant and all the drivers are upto date. I spent a lot of money to buy this laptop but ended up in frustration with this kind of problem ruining such a high end laptop.

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.)

Ok so to keep it short I upgraded my connection from to Setup Laptop - gt Wireless connection WEP ecryption - gt Dlink WBR- router - gt Siemens SpeedStream Modem - router reduces Dlink speed by download 90% gt Internet I did not notice any increase in speed after upgrading So I called my ISP and found out that it is the router that somewhat caps my speed It downloads faster if I plug my laptop into the Modem directly I called Dlink and their answer was that they cannot do anything about it quot Everybody has the same problem when you connect to the router and to the modem you lose speed There is nothing we can do about it quot But here is the thing that bugs me I can download files Firefox for example at k s but as soon as I add my router into the equation I can only download it at k s I can understand that there could be some loss with a router But losing of your download speed Come on I want to know if this is normal or if I am just dealing with incompetent tech support Any recommendations on good routers I can buy that will not literally paralyse my connexion Thanks nbsp

I have a ZBook 15 G2 which is normally docked in a HP21012 90W Docking Station. Last week we switched from 100Mb to 500 Mb internet speed and replaced all cabling in the house and the routers. When my laptop is connected directly to the cable without docking station the speed is correct. When I click my laptop in the docking station the speed gets reduced to 100 Mb. It does not matter if you connect the network cable to the docking station or to the laptop. When the laptop gets removed from the docking station and the network cable stays in the connector of the laptop it switches back to the correct speed of around 500 Mb. Would it help to have an USB -> ethernet network adapter so the correct speed is there?

I have a Verbatim pen drive, the capacity is 16 GB. When I start any transfer, say of a 300 Mb file, the first 200 Mb of data gets transferred at about 100 Mbps, then it freezes for at least 2-3 minutes after which the last 100 Mb will get transferred at 8 Mbps. This happens with every file. I reinstalled the USB 3.0 drivers and the pen drive is connected in a 3.0 port. Any suggestions?

Hello friendly Techguy community.

I have this fancy Bluetooth keyboard with a built in mouse pad for my stationary desktop computer, and I am trying to use it over a range that it can't particularly handle.

My question is there a way to possible solve this issue by sending the signal over my wifi router? such as an adapter set that I can be attached to the sender and receiver of my keyboard?

Any other suggestions to solve this problem are also welcomed.

Whenever I have my bluetooth enabled and am connected to a device, the connection to my wifi network is broken. It says that it is unable to find a network to connect to. However, when bluetooth is disabled, this problem immediately goes away. Any ideas as to what is going on? I've had Windows troubleshoot my network adapter, but it couldn't find any problems. I am using a HP Pavilion dm4t running Windows 8.

I am wondering if there is some problem with the Wlan Drivers / Windows.
I have a Intel AC7260 Wlan card with BT.
With BT off, I am achieving a speed of around 7,6 MB/s while transferring files over Network .
With BT on and no Device connected the speed stays at 7,6 MB/s.

Now, if I open Windows Settings>Manage Bluetooth the Wlan speed drops at once by around 2MB/s to around 5,2 MB/s and stays there. Once I close Settings, the speed goes at once up to the 7,6 MB/s.

Using the BT Device while transferring files the speed is 5,2 MB/s , no matter if Settings is open or not.

Seems that there is some problem with "Device Discovery" while it is not in Background.

No. Why should it? Something else is going on, if you Internet speed went down. Most likely your WiFi card, which also does Bluetooth, is needing a little tweaking.

Hey guys, so I bought a Lenovo desktop (Y900-34ISZ Desktop (ideacentre) - Type 90DD) a few weeks back and bluetooth and wifi were supposed to be included, altho I can't find them. I've tried downloading every possible drivers, updates, watching multiple solution tutorials etc. It seems like my PC doesn't support bluetooth/wifi after all. I can't find the bluetooth under the devices section, it won't appear. Altho, it does appear on the commando center from time to time (no function whatsoever), just to dissapear again. Same thing goes for wifi - it's not there. I've basically given up on trying to fix it so I'd appreciate all the help i can get.

Hi all. I'm not sure if this question should go into this forum but here goes. I have a PC I planned to hook up to a TV. The PC would use 802.11g WiFi to access my home network and the Internet. I started looking for a mini keyboard/mouse to use with this and realized that there might be an issue using either Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz band devices (that aren't Bluetooth). The PC would have a WiFi NIC in it and something, either a Bluetooth adapter or other 2.4 GHz device, connected and used at the same time. How do people get around this issue other then utilizing 802.11n?

Actually, I just double checked, and the driver is NOT installed for the Wi-Fi card. I was looking at the driver for the regular LAN controller. I was tricked because it is a MoBo integrated LAN controller, but the driver labels it as a Realtek PCIe.

I did download the driver exe from Realtek and I also tried the one from HP. Neither seems to load the WiFi functionality of this card.

Also, if it helps, the card is a Realtek branded for certain HP laptops.

Hello @Banti2?, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I read your post about the Windows 10 upgrade, and wanted to assist you!You can use the Go back to an earlier build option, in your System Settings: HP Notebook PCs - Upgrading to Windows 10Once you are back to your original Operating System, check to see if you are experiencing the same issue. If not, then you may consider holding off on the Windows 10 upgrade for a few weeks, until drivers can be updated. However, if you are able to get the WiFi and Bluetooth to work, using an external device, then you can continue to use Windows 10.  Keep in mind, that the rollback option is only good for the first 28 days, after installing Windows 10. Please let me know if this information was helpful by clicking the thumbs up below.Regards!

I have seen a few printers that have USB and Wifi connections, I have also seen a small point and shoot digital camera that transfered it's pictures via wifi instead of bluetooth. Is bluetooth being phased out? Does this mean bluetooth is dieing? I know that wifi has a higher data transfer rate so it's more convenient but I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone.

A:Some devices are usinf Wifi instead of bluetooth

Bluetooth isn't dying, but is becoming something more integrated. Some speculate that cars will use it instead of internal cabling (bad idea if you ask me).
This article
another article

But wifi is better for some applications, as it allows the device to get inside a network and communicate with any device inside that network (so it's why wifi is pretty prevalent in printers along the Ethernet interface), while bluetooth is usually used for a temporary very-short-range connection between two devices. So you get bluetooth operated smart locks, sensors and other stuff that would make no sense to put on Wifi.

I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone

Why not? They are just different data transfer protocols over radio waves.

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

Hi there, i just got my DV9543cl and am quite loving it i can even play gothic 3 on almost maxed out settings, something that i dint expect from the 8600M GS card, altough not a 1440 resolution.
However my main problem is that i need to put bluetooth to the laptop as it only came with the wifi option.
i thought that i could upgrade to the "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection and Bluetooth" card, in order to have wifi + bluetooth internally.
HP help/support advise me that i cannot upgrade this laptop to a internal wifi+bluetooth.
Can anyone share some wisdom to this? Is there an internal card i can use to install bluetooth to the laptop? mainly i need bluetooth for my connectivy with phone and also a bluetooth wireless mouse, so no extra devices hang out the laptop ports.

any ideas, much appreaciated .


A:Internal bluetooth / wifi - HP DV9543cl

The Guru's at HP say No... Go to some laptop parts websites and see if there is a 3rd party Bluetooth card available for your HP model. Do a Google search. If Blutooth is not an option for your model, I'm afraid that you are out of luck.

Shouldn't you have checked for the Blutooth option before you purchased the HP laptop?

Need exact model and the big question is whether it is in the "whitelist" era. Generally anything with a 4th gen Intel Core or newer is past the whitelist and you can install any wireless or wifi-bluetooth card of the same form factor as long as you have at least 2 antennae which I believe the G6 models do.

Hi, I've posted about this before, but as I got no reply, I think I'd better do so again.  Basically, the Wireless N-2230 and various BT adapters on this machine are insane. If I switch the BT off, the WiFi refuses to work, and even spontaneously 'loses' its drivers sometimes! The BT itself misbehaves when this happens, and sometimes keeps switching itself back on when I try to turn it on. I've tried everything, but the only thing that works is a forced reboot. In addition, I've had a 'Fan Error' AND a second Thermal Sensing Error this week.  Are there *any* software fixes I can try before going through an expensive motherboard replacement to save this machine? TIA for answers

Hi, I bought my notebook "HP Pavilion g6" on January 2013. It was working fine until last month though I was facing some connection problems with wifi after upgradation to Windows 10. Suddenly, after some updates, the wifi and bluetooth adapters have disappeared. I tried to rectify the problem by trying out the solutions given everywhere, but no luck. The adapter itself is missing. Even after downloading the adapter, its not shown in the device manager as well as the network connections. Hence, I am not able to connect to wifi. Please help me with this issue. Thank you,Yadukrishnan Nair

Hello I just bought a brand new computer days ago Haven't been using it that long It's an HP Envy qe or something like that The first day I played on it windows updates were downloaded The computer has built in Bluetooth which I love switch and no settings Wifi PC on/off Bluetooth in but I noticed it was always-on and Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings was wondering if there was an on off switch I searched Google and seen there is an on off switch in PC Settings PC Devices Bluetooth Unfortunately I do not Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings have this Also under PC Settings and Network I do not have an on off switch for the wifi I also don't have anything in PC Settings called Wireless I talked with HP support since I just bought this computer their only option was to do a System Restore or Recovery I talked to Microsoft support and their only option was to pay for a premium membership so they could use their 'advanced tools' to scan my system and find out the problem which is my long history of dealing with computers and support their answer would have probably been the same which was System Restore or Recovery at which who even knows if this is going to fix the problem So now I come to this community my first time here wave asking for assistance I temporarily disabled my Bluetooth in Device Manager because I don't know if it's safe to have it constantly on if I'm not using it I've seen on here there are other people who have had the same problem but I didn't see a definite solution on the couple threads I read Also just before disabling my Bluetooth I ran HP support assistant and it had a couple updates Then when I went to restart my computer Windows Update had another update still no option was showing to turn Bluetooth on off or Wifi on off Also come to think of it I haven't ever seen the option to turn Bluetooth on off the past three days I've owned the computer If for some reason I cannot fix this issue is it harmful to keep the Bluetooth always on I don't want harm the computer if it's constantly sitting there searching for Bluetooth devices if I'm not using them or don't plan on using them

A:Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings

Hi summerbear. I can try something that works on my MSI laptop (a great brand BTW), and I think most of todays' laptops.
Usualy there's an allin1 manager to all of the options you mentioned, and it is accessible through the start line in windows (at the bottom). Most of the time you don't see all the icons of programs running, and there's a little upward arrow in far right side of the start line, that if clicked reveals sound, storage, and allin1 managers installed in your system. In my laptop this manager program that includes control over volume, wi-fi, and bluetooth, is called SCM. I'm not sure that HP's has the exact same program but there's supposed to be some type of allin1. If you don't find any try typing "Bluetooth" in windows search (through the start button), and shutting down wi-fi is also possible by clicking the network bars in the far right, thus accessing the list of nearby wi-fi networks, choosing the one you're connected to, and clicking "disconnect".
Hope I helped, goodluck.

Recently there was a Wifi Driver issue, which got resolved when the service guy came and replaced it, 6-8 weeks ago. After that my Wifi works fine but has a bit of a performance issue - It takes some time to identify Wifi Networks. If I switch on my bluetooth, the wifi performance degrades more, i.e. more time to identify network and the speeds of download/upload deteriorates a lot (A video in Youtube 720p quality is brought down to 144p).In addition it seems to take a lot of time for my bluetooth to identify a device. Does the Wifi and Bluetooth share the antennas? If so does this mean the antenna have a problem now?Is there a way to troubleshoot this? maybe by checking speed on Wifi and bluetooth.

I was asked to re install windows 8 on a laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 15 ( 3521 ).

It installed all the drivers except the wifi + Bluetooth driver.

The laptop cannot connect to wifi straight after installing windows 8.

When I run the exe, it gets to the end of the installation it asks for the user to switch on the Bluetooth or wireless switch ( It was one if them, I forgot which one ).

I look all over the laptop and cannot find anything that resembles a switch. I looked at the FN keys and there is no shortcut for it or anything.

I looked to see if it's under settings in windows 8 but the wifi screen says " no devices ".

The laptop has a cheap build.

Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD due to bluetooth or wifi driver/hardware

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi @Saheb_12?,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 15-n203tx Notebook  and  and issues with the Wireless connecting. Try resetting the router. Unplug the router and wait 30 seconds before plugging it back in to make sure it fully resets. Here is a link to the troubleshooting the Wireless connection, if you need it. Here is a document on Airplane mode. If Airplane mode is on you cannot use your WiFi or Ethernet, so Airplane mode should off for the Wireless troubleshooting. You can do a system restore. System restore will help if something automatically updated and did not go well on the Notebook and stopped the WiFi from working. When performing a System restore please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices as they can cause issues. Please let me know how this goes.You can say thanks for trying to help, by clicking the Thumbs Up below!.Thanks.

I certain its a hardware issue but i was just curious. don't they both broadcast on the 802.11 band (is it called a band?)? so why wouldn't they be capable of either or? (i know bluetooth uses smaller wave lengths and wifi larger, that much i do know) it would probably be impractical to try wifi on bluetooth band as you would get severely reduced performance. but why not bluetooth on wifi band?

wouldn't work and in the US the FCC wouldn't allow it. antenna length is a function of frequency so wifi and is abt 6" bluetooth is abt 1" thats one reason wifi has a longer range

Here's the driver page for your computer. at the size of the 730, it looks significantly smaller than the 950/970. But you should check your case to see if you have room

So I have an interresting situation A week ago we ordered a bunch of Asus T TA transformer book tablets for a customer One of them wouldn't recognize bluetooth or wifi and it had a problem with the Broadcom Serial Bus Driver over UART Bus Enumerator After numerous driver downloads and installs and even a full factory restore whatever option in windows where it deletes everything and reinstalls the OS the issue still persisted Since the tablet was brand new we just submitted a DOA request from our wholesaler and sent the tablet back No big deal figured it was a Wifi/Bluetooth UART Bus. different issues. tabl Broadcom 2 hardware issue The other day a Lenovo tablet came in with the EXACT same problem Wifi/Bluetooth issues. Broadcom UART Bus. 2 different tabl Again driver installs factory restore etc and the issue is still there SO obviously it's not a hardware issue and despite the numerous posts on the internet I can't seem to find a solution Again both units have had drivers bios and factory restores and the issue is still there immediately after factory restore

If they are coming from the same wholesaler. I would say it is time to find a different company to purchase the units from.

I have bought a Bluetooth speaker, turned on bluetooth on the laptop, found the speaker and connected. Plays fine. But within around 30 seconds the Wifi becomes disabled. Won't come back automatically again on until I turn bluetooth off.

Any ideas on this? I've just bought a small usb bluetooth adapter to try too and will update with my results with that too soon.

I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my XPS 13 9350.  It does have the Broadcom wifi/bt adapter.
My wifi issue is the computer will not connect to my 5GHZ network. Every time I try it just fails to connect and asks me for the password even though it's correct.  I can connect to my 2.4ghz but not the 5ghz

My BT issue is I have always have to repair my BT mouse when the computer restarts.
I previously had a 9343 and I had no issues like this.  I was able to connect to my 5ghz network and using Bluetooth manager as a trusted device my mouse always reconnected at a reboot.  
I know there are some issues with Broadcom adapters but my 9343 had one and I did not have this issue at all.  Is it just because the 9350 has a newer broadcom chip so it's not fully supported?
