Re: thinkpad E430 bluetooth

okay you have the CTO model, so which model wireless card do you have? The Bluetooth feature is only built into some model of the wireless cards.

Some wireless card on the E430 doesn't have Bluetooth.

Re: thinkpad E430 bluetooth

can you go into your system information, and under network, there is an information panel that lists the wireless card that you have.

or alternatively, go into your parts list, which should list the FRU for the wireless card.

Your wireless card doesn't have Bluetooth built in.
