Changed out the bluetooth a year ago. Just got a Bose Soundlink 2. I can add it in devices and printers but it will not connect. My iphone and ipad connect the bose just fine. Hope someone can help!!

Can your iPhone or iPad connect via Bluetooth to your laptop (i.e. does Bluetooth work with ANY device on your laptop)? If not, I'd probably try uninstalling your current Bluetooth driver, reboot, and try to install the latest Bluetooth driver for the laptop.

I also wouldn't hesitate to contact Bose Technical Support.

yes I just tried the Iphone and it works fine.I have already called Bose and they could not tell me what the problem was. They think it has something to do with A2DP but they looked up the model number for the Intel bluetooth and they said it should work. I asked about level 2 support and evidently there is none.

It sounds like getting the Bose SoundLink to work with laptop Bluetooth (as opposed to phones or tablets) can be problematic (see https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3779685?start=0&tstart=0 and https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3753978?start=0&tstart=0). Maybe you can translate the suggested resolutions in the 1st link from Mac to PC...

Are you running the latest Bose software update?
