    Question Intel 6230 and Wireless Console 3

    Last week I installed an Intel 6230 WiFi/Bluetooth combo card. Everything went smoothly except the card and connections are a bit too small for my clumsy fingers. I actually needed to use a loupe to see so I could line up the tiny antenna connectors.

    Anyway, after getting the drivers installed and making sure it works, I tried Wireless Console 3 to see if it would be able to control the WiFi and Bluetooth like it worked with the Atheros card. It works fine with the WiFi, but doesn't even see the Bluetooth.

    I uninstalled the WC3 program and reinstalled it and still it sees and controls the WiFi but not the Bluetooth.

    Any ideas on how to get this working? I don't mind going into the registry. In the meanwhile I'll keep looking for an answer.

    Have you looked at Process Monitor to see what registry and files are being hit when you toggle Bt ?

    If you DBL-Click it it will allow you to disable your WiFi with an animated graphic. It also provides the animation for the Fn+f2 key. It also does the same on the Bluetooth if you have the original card. It only works on the WiFi for me. I use it because most of the time I use an external keyboard and don't have the Asus Fn keys.

    I'm looking at ProcessMonitor and here is what happens when I enable BT through console3.

    1. wcourier.exe crates a new thread.
    2. c:\program files (x86)\bluetooth suite\adminservice.exe creates a new thread.
    3. c:\program files (x86)\bluetooth suite\ath_coexagent.exe creates a new thread.
    4. hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\bthport is read by adminservice.exe.
    5. some Atheros registry keys are hit.
    6. There is a btvstack.exe and athbttray.exe that also access some registry.

    I think what happens is wcourier utilizes WMI to enable/disable the BT.

    I would like to see what your ProcessMonitor dump looks like since you're the odd ball here. You can include all processes in the dump, I can sort through them.

    Which ProcessMonitor, the one from SysInternals? It goes on forever, and the one in TaskMgr doesn't change when I start BT. Must be in the services list.

    BTW, oddball? How did you know?!? lol

    Yes the one from Sysinternals. Post the dump or email it to me. Capture the disabling of BT in a separate dump and enabling of BT in another.
