You will need to ask ASUS regarding this support/compatibility.
There are regulatory requirements:
And, you may have problems:
I know you have a desktop, but there is still the potential. And, there may well be issues with the ASUS bios support of this card.
Also, the Intel support staff will respond with other information regarding performance issues.
Al, thanks for your reply.
I read the documents you linked and am very aware of the implications. It's good to refresh oneself with the realities of the technology from time to time.
I have fitted the adapter to a desktop that lives permanently in my home office/lab and I live in a rural area beside a rainforest, so I don't expect a knock on the door from the ACA any time soon.
Everything works. The drivers installed seamlessly and the adapter works just fine for WiFi and for Bluetooth. The PC is on a LAN so I don't actually need the WiFi except for development of wifi enabled embedded devices. The bios has no idea the wifi even exists. Its own on-board wifi has been turned off.
The ONLY thing that does not work is that I cannot select BT SPP speeds greater than 128000, which I find curious, and problematic because I need the speed.

We understand you're unable to set your Bluetooth® Serial Port Profile speed higher than 128,000 Bd using the latest drivers in Windows 7*.
As far I understand, this behavior may be expected, as SPP is supported by the Windows* inbox drivers, not by our Bluetooth® Software and drivers.
1. Features for Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® Technology
2. Bluetooth® Version and Profile Support in Previous Windows* Versions (look for "Which Bluetooth® profiles have in-box support in previous versions of Windows*?")
