    Can AC7265 Bluetooth and WLAN be run simultaneously?

    birds2sky

      Dear Sir,

       

      I need your help.

      I have 2questions about AC-7265 .

       

      Q1

      Can AC7265 Bluetooth and WLAN be run simultaneously?

       

      If it is possible, is there no restriction?

      (For example, it is necessary to use at a frequency different from 2.5 G and 5 G.)

      I think that it can do it, but I was not sure, so I asked a question.

       

      Q2. Consumption

      When communicating using Bluetooth only, will Wi-Fi power consumption be zero?

       

      This is my first post.

       

      Best regards,

          Hello birds2sky,

          Welcome to the Intel® Wireless Support Community.

          The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 is perfectly capable of using Bluetooth* and wireless networking at the same time. There are no restrictions on this. 

          On a side note, Bluetooth* devices have been known to cause interference as they also share the 2.4 GHz band. Because of this, the 5 GHz Band is usually recommended. However, newer standards have helped minimize this problem and it's now entirely optional.

          As far as power consumption goes, if you're only using Bluetooth*, and your wireless module is still enabled, it will always consume power (scanning for networks and so on). The only way to avoid this would be to disable your adapter's wireless module via Device Manager (the Bluetooth* and Wireless modules can be disabled independently).

          If you have any additional questions, or you would like more detail, please let us know.

          Best regards,
          Carlos A.
