    bluetooth in centrino wireless-n 2230

    I have the pangolin performance 12.10 laptop with an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230

    Code:
    02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)
    Supposedly this controller has built-in bluetooth support but I can't figure out how to enable it. When I plug a usb bluetooth dongle in the dongle works fine. Is there a way to use bluetooth with the builtin adapter?

    What model system do you have? Did you upgrade the card manually? We've never sold a 2230.

    Intel Centrino 1030 - 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN + Bluetooth Combo Module

    But lspci is reporting that I have a 2230..

    You can try pressing Fn+F12. That said, it sounds like you may have a bad or the wrong card.

    $ dmesg | tail

    And bluetooth shows up in rfkill

    The Fn+F12 hotkey physically switches the Bluetooth portion of the card on and off.
