Hello everyone,
I recently purchased a Dell XPS 17 L702x, and have gotten everything working except the infamous intel centrino wifi card, so I went to ebay and bought an atheros ar5b195 wifi/bluetooth combo card. After days of searching around and installing new kexts, I finally got the wifi (AR8285) to work, but not the bluetooth (AR3011) to work.

I have heard (and can confirm myself) that the bluetooth works perfectly only when you start up Windows 7, then warm boot into Lion.

Are there any suggestions on how to get the bluetooth working without warm booting?
Thanks

Hi,
I want to replace my intel centrino wlan module with something which works fine without any patches in 10.7.3. How about bluethooth problem, it it still there?
Or may be you could advise something else (mini half pci-e)?
