I have a HP Probook 4530s and have been experiencing a big drop in my dsl connection speed over wifi everytime I use the bluetooth connection to listen to music while on the internet. I also have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with built in bluetooth and I do not experience the same issue.
I have an Atheros AR9285 wifi adapter and a Atheros AR3011 bluetooth adapter in my Probook. I have tried a couple of things to fix this problem, but have been unsuccessful so far. Am at a loss on what to do next
- I have updated both adapters to the latest drivers via HP.com
- I have used the latest drivers via the Artheros drivers site
- I have changed the channel setting on my wireless router to something other than the default ch 6 (have tried just about every other available channel)
- I have a dual band wifi router (Dlink DIR 628) and have changed the band to 5Ghz (My Inspiron has dual band wifi, not sure if the Atheros AR9285 is also dual band or not)
Has anyone else had this issue with a Atheros AR9285 wifi card in their HP laptop? Please help
