    ASUS Bluetooth dongle gets lost on reboot


    Anyone else having problems with USB Bluetooth devices getting lost on startup / reboot. I have a ASUS BT211 dongle that I have to delete the device and reinstall it. Works well otherwise. I had the same problem with a rocketfish dongle under windows7 64.

    Have you tried the W7 64 bit driver 7.2.0.60 driver yet? - ASUS - Networks- ASUS USB-BT211 Mini Bluetooth Dongle

    If it wont install normally use compatibility mode for W7 :

    To install a driver/program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with w7 etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.
