I recently decided to install El Capitan again to my ProBook 650 G1 aside with Windows 10. I installed it successfully, but I have weird problem with Wifi/BT adapter.
I'm using Atheros AzureWave AR9285 (http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Athe...-WLAN-WIFI-BT-BlueTooth-Card/32259758668.html) that I bought to my wife ProBook 4530s, but in that laptop wifi card doesn't work.

Wifi works just fine, so as BT on first look - I can pair my magic mouse, but when I'm using it for a few seconds it stops working for few seconds and after few seconds works again. There is some "lags" on delays or how I can name it.

Does someone have similar problems?

Thanks.

I had the same issues with my Magic Mouse. It appears to be related to interference between WIFI and Bluetooth, see also here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201542.

My problems went away after I had switched from a 2.4GHz to a 5GHz channel.

Hope this helps.

But my WiFi adapter don't have 5GHz band.

It's not interference with wifi, I just tried disable wifi, but Magic Mouse behaves same.

Please verify that testing the BT mouse without wifi should include:

1) disabling WIFI in your access point(s)

2) moving the laptop to a place where there are no other 2.4GHz networks (e.g. from your neighbours)

3) checking that your computer is not set up as an access point (e.g. WIFI tethering)

Thank you for those advises, but this will be more KEXT/HW failure problem than this.

On my Mac Book Pro placed in same table there is no problem with Magic Mouse. When I turn MBP off, pair Magic Mouse to ProBook with hackintohs, those problems occure.

I asked here, if anyone faced similar problem and then fixed it by some special kext or FW update (I don't know how) or something else.

AR3011 (part of AR5B195) bluetooth is a poor choice for OS X compatibility.

Install BCM94352HMB.

I tried Magic Mouse in W10 and there works very well without any issues. So there must be some issues in kext or something.
But nevermind. I will use my Logitech G500 because I don't want to buy another Wifi card.
