Windows 8.1 x64 Home, HP 15-f039wm notebook, Celeron N2830, Crucial 8 GB DDR3-1600, Mushkin Chronos 240 GB SSD, 15" LED 1366x768
I replaced the WiFi/Bluetooth Combo WLAN adapter, Realtek RTL8723BE, 802.11 b/g/n 150 Mbps, Bluetooth 4.0, with
an Intel AC7260, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 867 Mbps, Bluetooth 4.0.
I uninstalled the Realtek drivers and installed (as administrator) the Intel ProSet/Wireless drivers 22.214.171.124 dated 4/15/2015,
My generic Bluetooth wireless keyboard (back-lit 7 colors) paired and connected with the Realtek RTL8723BE WLAN adapter, and it worked properly.
But with the AC7260 WLAN card installed, when I activate the Bluetooth search for BT devices on the notebook Settings / Bluetooth page, and I press the Connect button on the BT keyboard, the "Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard" entry does not appear on the Settings / Bluetooth page.
The AC7260 is verified as working, because it pairs and connects with my Android BT phone, and the WiFi works.
In Device Manager, under Bluetooth, I have entries for my phone, the Intel WLAN adapter, MS Bluetooth Enumerator, and MS Bluetooth LE Enumerator.
I've checked all the Details for the Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R) in Device Manager; they all look OK.
Under Network Adapters, I have entries for Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network), Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI), Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC7260, and Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. I have power management turned off for the AC7260. There are no Lower filters; Upper filters is vwfibus. Current power state is D0, where S0 -> D0.
The keyboard distributor recommended that I install the Mediatek driver with its Ralink Bluetooth stack, even though I'm not using a Ralink WLAN adapter. But the Mediatek driver didn't make the "Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard" entry show up on the Settings page for pairing and connecting.
I would much prefer to use the AC7260 rather than the Reaktek RTL8723BE, which tops out at 150 Mbps. I'm looking for 600 Mbps from the AC7260, 300 Mbps from each channel. I understand that there are limitations that will prevent me from getting the full 433 Mbps from each channel.
My question is, how do I get the Intel AC7260 and my BT wireless keyboard to pair and connect, and then stay connected?
