    Maximus V Formula Bluetooth

    Hello,

    Just recently built myself a new computer with the Maximus V Formula... Was just wondering how I could tell if the computer is recognizing the wifi+bluetooth combo card.

    Whenever I try to discover a bluetooth device, it doesn't work. Not sure if I have the wrong drivers or if the motherboard just isn't recognizing the bluetooth card. Any advice?

    Thanks

    Edit: Also, are those two antennas only for the wi-fi portion? I assume so, therefore I haven't installed them...

    Edit2: Nevermind, I added the antennas and I believe it's working now, how dumb of me!

    Not dumb at all, not many folks would have even thought to install the two antennas and expect the Bluetooth to be fixed. I certainly would not.

    Thank you for posting back with the fix which worked for you.

    I would have never have thought that it would fix bluetooth but all that matters is that it does.

    I had same problem and same fix. I already had to install one antenna to get WiFi to work, but Bluetooth wouldn't work. Second antenna and I'm all good. Thanks this thread!

    That's strange. Are you talking about the little black leads that connect the mPCIe to the I/O shield? Or the actual external (white) antennas? I have Bluetooth and WiFi working w/o connecting the antennas...haven't even removed them from the packages.

    Well this explains my dilemma. I've got that mPCIe chip installed but nothing connects via Bluetooth. I, however, cannot connect the antennas.

    The manual says to "remove the bolt from the Wi-Fi antenna connector" but there is no bolt... and I don't have anything that would connect to the card anyway. Manual also says "Wi-Fi antenna and it's cables are purchased separately". So if this is what I need to get Bluetooth working, anyone know where I can get these cables?

    My bluetooth & wifi works without external antennas, but reception of both bt/wifi is so poor that the only option is still connecting them.
