Windows 10 Bootcamp with Bluetooth Not Working

Recommended Posts

Edrick Smith    111

I have a 2017 Macbook Pro 15" and I have a bootcamp installation. For some reason Windows 10 will not work reliably at all with Bluetooth. I on occasion can get the device to pair, sometimes it'll connect just fine and work but eventually craps out. Sometimes it'll say it's connected but it actually wont work at all, sometimes it'll sporadicly work and the mouse will stutter across the screen. Other time it'll just say to attempt to repair. It always sees the devices broadcasting to be paired but it will 9 out of 10 times not work. This is with a logitech bluetooth mouse, a microsoft arc mouse, a microsoft ergonomic keyboard. I've tried running updates on the OS just to see, I've gone to the bluetooth drivers all of which are installed and checked for updates. I've tried resetting and doing a PR reset on the Mac. Bluetooth works perfectly on OS X this is just a problem with Windows.

Well an update to this, I think I have found what solved the issue:

 

Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters > Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter (right click and choose "Properties".

Under the "Advanced" tab, highlight the setting named "Bluetooth Collaboration", then change it to Enable. Then click OK.

Spoke too soon, same problems. I've checked to see if i can install the bootcamp drivers from apple for bluetooth but when I do that the device stops working so forcing it to take those drivers doesn't work. The drivers windows installs are from 2006. It says Bluetooth Radio 6/21/2006 for the driver it forces me to use.
