The Plugable product with a Broadcom BCM20702 BT4.0 chip in it is showing up with a yellow warning in Device Manager and status:
This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
The requested operation was unsuccessful.
Tried updating the drivers automatically WU - doesn’t find or install any driver, says it is up to date.
Downloaded manually from Softpedia or WU catalog (cab file) and trying to install from Device Manager gives error message “drivers are not suitable for this platform”. I’m running latest Windows 10 Home.
Tried this, also doesn’t work: https://support.plugable.com/t/usb-bluetooth-adapter-not-working-with-windows-10/9704/2
In fact, after restart, all bluetooth devices stopped working, and after re-pairing, my speakers would only play audio in half-second stutters. Needless to say that shit was uninstalled immediately.
This motherboard has its own Bluetooth functionality, but because the tower is far from workspace, I need another receiver closer to the keyboard/mouse for better signal. Connected via high quality USB3.1 AC-powered hub.
Kindly advise, thanks in advance.
