    Wifi/Bluetooth issues. Broadcom UART Bus. 2 different tabl


    So I have an interresting situation.

    A week ago we ordered a bunch of Asus T100TA transformer book tablets for a customer. One of them wouldn't recognize bluetooth or wifi and it had a problem with the Broadcom Serial Bus Driver over UART Bus Enumerator.
    After numerous driver downloads and installs and even a full factory restore (whatever option
    in windows 8 where it deletes everything and reinstalls the OS), the issue still persisted. Since the tablet was brand new, we just
    submitted a DOA request from our wholesaler and sent the tablet back. No big deal, figured it was a hardware issue.

    The other day, a Lenovo tablet came in with the EXACT same problem. Again...driver installs, factory restore etc....and the issue is
    still there. SO obviously it's not a hardware issue and despite the numerous posts on the internet, I can't seem to find a solution.

    Again, both units have had drivers, bios and factory restores and the issue is still there, immediately after factory restore.

    If they are coming from the same wholesaler. I would say it is time to find a different company to purchase the units from.

    They are not. I should have specified that the 2nd tablet, which is a different brand Lenovo, came from a customer a few days later and most likely did not come from the same wholesalers...and if they did, its a coincidence since they would have been purchased at completely different times and so their product lines would have no similarities.
