I removed all Bluetooth software / drivers as related to the aforementioned USB Bluetooth adapter.
Upon installation, the Wi-Fi node of the 3160 is detected, Windows installs a driver. Afterward, I am also able to install Intel's Wi-Fi driver. Use is poor, it will initially get a connection, then, seems to cease after just a few minutes.
Bluetooth on the 3160 is simply not detected in Windows Device Manager. That said, Windows 7 does allow for installation of Intel's Bluetooth driver.
All without success, the Bluetooth module on the 3160 is simply not detected in Windows Device Manager.
I later tried a different combo Wi-Fi / Bluetooth card (pulled from spouse's old laptop when I upgraded her to an Intel 7260). Its an Atheros based card, under the manufacturer name Azurewave, Atheros AR9002WB-1NG.
Like the Intel 3160, I can install Wi-Fi drivers and usage is limited. Also, like the Intel 3160, Bluetooth is simply not detected in Windows Device Manager. Unlike the Intel 3160, I cannot install Azurewave's Bluetooth software.
Upon doing more research, I suspect that either the BIOS on this computer might have a whitelist, or, that the BIOS needs to be updated in order to identify Bluetooth. That said, I'm unable to locate any such whitelist for this particular model!
BIOS - J01 V02.06 (I'll assume that HP would refer to this as version 2.06) ME Firmware - 220.127.116.113
...HP currently has the following versions available for download...
BIOS - 2.29A ME Firmware - 18.104.22.1681
So, a few questions...
1) Can anyone confirm if this model, HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor, does indeed have a whitelist? 1a) If so, can you point me to it? 2) Would simply installing a newer BIOS omit said whitelist?
Please note, I have no requirement for Wi-Fi functionality, only Bluetooth. Above, I mention the Wi-Fi to note both that it is detected, and, at least somewhat usable.
