Hi everyone. Probably going to sound absolutely stupid, but do you have to have USB connection with mini pcie to pcie(x1) adapter? I have an adapter with no USB cable coming off of it, and have just got an Azurewave BCM94352HMB connected to it. Is this why my bluetooth isn't working/showing up?
The bluetooth component uses USB. If fail to connect it, no expectation of it working.

Thanks for the reply. Okay, so order an adapter with USB cable then. Will I be able to plug it into a normal USB port, as I don't have a USB hub on my motherboard?

It would require a cable reaching out of the chassis and into an external port.

I don't mind that, if it will definitely get the damn thing working. So the generic cable that typically comes with a PCIe(x1) adapter will definitely fit the an external(normal) USB port?
This is my motherboard:-

This is the adapter I'm guessing I would need:-

Would I have to modify that USB cable?

Probably not. It is likely the cable is meant to plug into a USB2 motherboard header. You'll likely need an adapter.

Okay cool. Last one(hopefully) and I'll stop hassling you hehe.
Do you reckon this is a compatible combo and do you think it'll get bluetooth working with BCM94352HMB plugged in?

USB 4-pin header to USB A cable:-

or shall I keep the original cable that comes with the adapter and get a USB 9-pin header male to USB A cable?
Thank you for your help so far and hopefully you're available to help me with the solution.

Looks ok to me. I think that "adapter" actually includes the BCM4352... (at least it is implied by the listing).
