    Guestion about my order

    I purchased a Gazp8 Order #26385, I thought the wireless card provided Bluetooth in addition to the 802.11. But when I go into the Bluetooth settings it say no adapter detected. Is something broken or am I just mistaken in what I thought came with my wireless card.

    Thanks

    Why are you asking this question here?
    If you look at the System76 page it does not mention Bluetooth.
    It took me all of 10 seconds to Google that.

    That page --> Configure & Buy --> Section "Wireless":

    Intel Centrino 2230 - 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN + Bluetooth Combo Module
    IIRC, the Bluetooth is disabled in the BIOS by default, to save power.

    You need to press Fn + F12 to enable Bluetooth.

    Thanks, I didn't think the fn + f12 would woenable it but rather just turn it on and off. And since it wasn't showing up I thought it might just be a issue with the card.

    Sorry if I came across as grumpy but it might have been better to mention that fact in the specs.

    Any chance of a link? I still cannot see a link that says "Order", "Specs" or "Buy Now" on the page that Google led me to.
    viz. https://www.system76.com/laptops/model/gazp8

    Don't get me wrong, I like your product. I may well buy one at some point.

    Screenshot from 2013-05-31 08:32:14.pngHere's an image. The Gazelle is current out of stock, so it's configure page is inaccessible. But this shows the Pangolin's page, which offers identical WiFi options.
