    More AC7260 Bluetooth Problems


      I just updated my Bluetooth drivers from 17.0.1405.0466 to 17.1.1406.01


      I am running Windows 7 Professional on a Dell M6800.


      Now, my Bluetooth radio is listed as Generic Bluetooth Adapter and I am unable to turn the adapter off within Windows.  If I select "turn adapter OFF" from the Bluetooth shortcut in the Notification Area of the taskbar, nothing happens. 


      If I open Bluetooth Settings and check the "Turn off the Bluetooth adapter" checkbox, I get the following error message:


           An error occurred while Windows was saving your settings. The Bluetooth device might be unplugged.

           The following settings were not saved: Discoverability settings


      Surprisingly, I am able to connect to the computer via Bluetooth, but obviously something isn't right here.


      I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times now.  I have completely powered off the PC and disconnected the battery and power supply as some have suggested on other threads. 


      Prior to this, when I was running 17.0.1405.0466, the only problem I had was that the Bluetooth LED by the keyboard would not turn off when the adapter was turned off until a reboot was performed. 


      Hopefully there is a cure for this.
