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?
    What board o you have? My MVF came with the mPCI adapter with the BT/WiFi card, the internal cables that connect the card to the IO shield and external antennas.

    I have the Maximus V Extreme. It has a card in it, but it doesn't say what it is. I assumed it was the Bluetooth as the website states this board has Bluetooth.

    If you see something like this http://www.google.com/imgres?sa=X&hl...&tx=117&ty=108 installed with 2 screws on the side of the combo card, then you should have BT and/or WiFi

    Yep, that is exactly what I have. I just don't know why I can't connect to anything. It scans and scans (Windows 8) and finds nothing, despite my phone, keyboard and headset all set to pair. My RocketFish adapter was able to find them on my previous build.

    I have a similar problem, but my antennas are connected. It will find a new device, but rarely wants to pair. I am telling myself it is the devices, not my mobo, but there is always that thought. I have tried 5 phones of various make/models and only 1 paired. At 1st it have me a 0x800xxxxx message, I manually reset drivers and it stopped that error only to give me another.

    Is there a place I can get the proper connectors for the antenna just so I can get this Bluetooth working? It's a huge bummer having this and does nothing. I have the antenna, but no way to connect it.

    for those having bluetooth issues :
    you need to connect the wifi antennas , i found that if you wont screw the antenna plug firmly onto the back i/o sheild , the antennas wont be connected properly , and you wont have bluetooth connection (wifi will work fine even without antennas)

    you need to tighten the antenna plugs firmly , with the supplied nuts .
    then , screw in the antennas , check that the inner antenna wire cant be twisted once you screw the antenna in .
