Bluetooth does not find a device ASRock J5005 - Intel Wireless AC 3165

  • Hi All,


    Please apologise another noob question!!

    I have another BT problem with my new board. Installed the intel M.2 Wireless AC 3165 Combo today but it detects no devices.


    The card is recognised by the system -> http://ix.io/2iXU


    Bluetooth is enabled in the settings and the service seems to run:


    Is there any other service I have to start in addition?


    Thanks !


    p.s. sorry - here ist the log file: hastebin

    dmesg | paste:

  • Hi,



    I could get LE to find bluetooth devices via ssh by using bluetoothctl.

    So the card is indeed working.


    Within kodi there are no devices showing up in settings-> Bluetooth and I can not do proper pairing.


    Do I have to add something special to the autostart.sh? :/


    Thanks

  • No, the BT section in LE should simply see the BT devices in the area.


    I have the same J5005, and was planning to add wifi to it.

    But I was more thinking about the AC7265 or higher.


    What are you trying to connect to?

  • Thank you for your continuous support, Klojum!


    (I don't care the better Wi-Fi as I am wired anyway, therefore I went with the 3165 which was a little less expensive.

    Also there was a comment from 5schatten here on the forum, that the 3165 should be supported natively.)


    I want to connect two 8bitdo gamepads.


    The gamepad appears in the GUI when I trigger the pairing via SSH. The actual pairing however does not work.

    After rebooting, the GUI shows a message like no Bluetooth devices found, please trigger pairing. Without certain SSH action no device is found. The old board as well as the RPis showed the BT devices without further SSH action.


    I will add a screenshot later.

    ...I am not at home anymore and didn't have much time to play around this morning.

  • Run "journalctl | paste" about 1 min after boot and share the URL please. This will show more info about services starting and sequence.

  • I can't see anything wrong. The Intel driver is loaded, firmware loads, there are other signs that the card is up/running.

    Thank you for checking, chewitt.

    Although I had some success with the intel and all drivers were there, I couldn't get it to work properly. I have disassembled my NAS to get the Qualcomm card which I know that it works. Klojum I hope you have more luck with the more powerful card! I will keep you posted when I got it working properly

  • I opened pandora's box by changing the intel with the qualcomm. After taking the M.2 of the NAS (...had to disassemble the whole sh** to get it), I couldn't shut down the NAS anymore. It came up straight after the shut-down due to the WOL bios setting. :@ taking out the card did lead to this strange behaviour. Anyway, both cards behave identical and I guess it relates to the 8bitdos. I will open a dedicated thread.


    Thank you for your support

    We'll see in a week or two as I placed the order in the land of the big long wall.


    I ordered a AC 9560 wifi kit which *should* work with the J5005, it being a CNVI card and all.
    The J5005 is to do Ubuntu 20.04 where Bluetooth would come in handy too, testing LibreELEC is optional.
