Lenovo X1 - Bluetooth not pairing drops wifi connection
Hi all I am using a Lenovo X1 model 129126U. Since last three months I am having problems connecting any bluetooth device to the machine, previously it used to work fine but then suddenly the bluetooth components dissappeared after several attempts and uninstalling and reinstalling drivers I have been unable to detect and connect any bluetooth devices. The original issue was that all BT components registered in the BT module suddenly disappered and when I tried to re connect the BT devices nothing happened. I continued to have this issue and was experiencing issues only in detecting and paring BT devices but more recently I had uninstalled and reinstalled all the drivers (bluetooth as well as wireless) I have started to experience a new issue that is as soon as I initiate the BT pairing activity my wireless connection gets dropped. Considering there may be a conflict between BT and WIFI, I even disabled the wireless and as discussed on various forums even changed the settings for wifi channel to 5.2g and tried to add BT devices but nothing happens except for dropping of the wifi connection as soon as BT pairing starts. I called Lenovo support and after discussion they even remotely connected to my machine and checked all the drivers and components but couldnt find any issues with the drivers nor any conflicts in the hardware components. They suspected that this is due to an MS update, whereas I suspect that the issue originated after the bios update version 1.66.2.01 or it maybe due to Intel Chipset Support update version 18.104.22.1681. While have further updated the bios to version 1.68.2.02, I believe this issue has not be addresed or corrected. While all of these are my assumptions I have yet to find a response or assistance that can help me find a solution to my problem. I would appreciate if some assistance and guidance may be provided in resolving this issue. Current status of drivers on my machine BIOS -8MET68WW(1.68) Bluetooth Broadcom drivers updated to 22.214.171.12400, Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator driver updated to 6.1.7601.17889, Intel centrino wireless 6205 driver updated to 126.96.36.199, Microsoft Bluetooth Personal Area Network driver 6.1.7600.16385, Microsoft Bluetooth Device RFCOMM Protocol 6.1.7600.16385.
