    Qualcomm Atheros AR3011 Bluetooth


    The bluetooth driver supplied with Windows for my AR3011 does not support some low energy mode, so I thought I`d try to reinstall the windows 7 x64 driver suite from the vendor.

    Problem is that there is some kind of version check which I canīt get pass:
    Click image for larger version

    This file is part of the win7 driver suite:

    Windows 8


    I am using Windows 8 64 bit on my new Sony vaio notebook E series SVE15127CB. Recently I checked that my Nokia e 71 mobile and blackberry 8520 are showing offline even after successful pairing. Several times I removed and paired but results wont change. I updated the driver and also installed Atheros newer version ending with 212, but no success. The devices are showing offline. I tried to transfer file still its not working. Also uninstalled the driver and re-installed them no success. You can say I tried EVERYTHING possible in 3 days. No success.

    I think windows 8 has a BIG TIME Bluetooth compatibility issues. My last resort is to attempt a recovery. But I cant go for it as I have many application loaded on my note book (as I am into graphic designing stuff). It would be a complex for me to follow the procedure. If anyone can suggest something I have missed would be highly appreciable. Thanks.
