Hi,

I have a HP G2 tower Z4 PC.

I bought a Bluetooth/Wi-Fi card, this one more exactly: wie7265 

The Wi-Fi works just fine however the Bluetooth module is not.

 

I have received a cable with 9/10 pins, one being blocked out from the Wi-Fi card seller as per the pics from the amazon link.

I tried to connect this to position 23 on the mainboard of the computer. You can have a look at the motherboard if you google "c06506661.pdf HP". 

-this does not work. I connected the cable to motherboard matching the blank pins on cable/motherboard leaving the blank pin from manufacturer cable empty.

 

Can someone please help me understand how do I connect the Bluetooth to the USB on motherboard?

Any suggestions how to sort this?

If I may, my suggestion is to just buy a Bluetooth dongle to plug into one of the unused USB ports instead of fighting with a proprietary USB header on the motherboard.

 

The Bluetooth dongles are tiny, unobtrusive and very useful.

 

You should be able to find a USB 4.0 or higher dongle at a very low price.

 

I am a firm believer in the K.I.S.S. principle, and keeping it simple.

Hi Erico,

 

Thank you very much for your reply.

 

I 100% understand where you are coming from and I agree with your opinion however, the fact that I bought this specific WIFI/Bluetooth card and I'm leaving the Bluetooth part of the card unused is against my principles. It really really bothers me to know that I have a bluetooth card in the PC but I'm using a different dongle for it. 

I'm not even joking, I would not be able to sleep at night. I might just have to listen to you if no other solution can be found but it would make me ridiculously sad. 

 

Either way, I really want to understand what is this type of port as nothing came up online for a 6PIN USB2.0 internal port with 2nd PIN blank.

Well, the problem is that what you have is a proprietary motherboard that is part of a factory built PC with some proprietary parts and configuration.

 

"Either way, I really want to understand what is this type of port as nothing came up online for a 6PIN USB2.0 internal port with 2nd PIN blank" That is a proprietary configuration for your motherboard.

 

The PC I am typing on is a DIY unit in which I chose all of the components. 

 

That card you have would work in my MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro WIFI motherboard because of its open configuration,  standard  headers and enthusiast advanced UEFI BIOS.

 

I believe you are fighting a losing battle with your factory PC and limited BIOS.

 

I can even turn on and off some of the USB ports in mine and you are unable to do that.

My USB bluetooth dongle arrives tomorrow. I made peace with this idea after I realized that the WIFI card has a previous version of Bluetooth so it's actually an upgrade.  

 

Thank you Erico!
