Even though the post you're referring to is talking about Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265, it refers to a third party PCIe adapter for desktop that requires a Bluetooth cable.
Most of the Intel wireless adapters installed by OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) on their systems don't require a direct connection from the card to the motherboard USB header for Bluetooth communication. Both Wireless (PCIe) and Bluetooth (USB) communicate through the PCIe lanes as long as the port supports it.
Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.
Hi Eugenio ,
Thank you and I appreciate your prompt response. In your response you mentioned below -
"Both Wireless (PCIe) and Bluetooth (USB) communicate through the PCIe lanes as long as the port supports it."
We want other way around, Both Wireless and Bluetooth work with USB connections.
Our port (connecting to 8265 module) only has USB connections and no PCIe connections at all.
Fingers crossed that this is possible.
How the adapter communicates with the system or motherboard is related to its design.
