View Full Version : Bluetooth inconsistent

October 12th, 2010, 12:31 AM
So, after the upgrade to 10.10, my bluetooth devices keep cutting in and out, and my Jabra bt125 won't connect to this computer.

The Jabra won't even show up on btscanner or bluewho, but it will connect to my phone. The phone connects, but quickly disconnects. When left alone, the two will connect again! A friend's other headset connected, but had the same problems as the phone. That was an LG HBM-210. The signal was good for up to a minute, then down for at least a minute, over and over....

Before the upgrade everything worked perfectly. What happened, or what did I forget to do? Might I have removed something critical when I switched Maverick 64-bit to the lubuntu package, and tried to remove some redundancies?

The link quality starts really high, when it connects - 78%.
After connecting, it quickly dips to 36%, but is still usable.
Right as its disconnecting, the link quality dips to 10%, inexplicably.

The "recieved signal strength" and transmitter power are both listed as "optimal" the entire time on the bluetooth Devices GUI.

The IOGear GBU321 was perfectly compatible with the last version.
