I have been having terrible trouble with getting an internet connection on my machine (Lenovo Q190). I have been able to connect to the network and get outbound pings to bbc.co.uk etc. But I have not been able to get any web browser activity.

After playing around with all kinds of things, I finally worked out that it's the transmitter for my Bose SoundLink. This transmits over a private Bluetooth network to the speaker. With the transmitter out, all is well with the connection. Plug it in, everything stops.

So of course this means that I can either connect to the internet OR listen to sound in my preferred way. Since I spend a lot of time on Spotify and Netflix, either/or isn't really good enough.

Can anyone suggest a way that I can leave the Bose connected and still have internet traffic?
