Hi,

 

G57 or CQ57 is a series of many models, what is the model of your machine because some machines have and some machine do not have. Your machine may have 1 of the following options:

 

  • Atheros AR9002WB-1NGB 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR Combo Adapter BT3.0+HS ready)
  • Ralink 5390GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi Adapter
  • Realtek 8188BC8 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0+HS Combo Adapter
  • Realtek 8188GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi Adapter

Regards.

Hi,

 

If you wish to use BT devices you can buy a USB BT dongle such as one of these:

Your computer does not have built-in bluetooth. The drivers are for bluetooth dongles. you need to buy a BT dongle.
