    Question Driver issue for HP 15-ba015na Bluetooth adapter


    I have a HP 15-ba015na laptop running Ubuntu 20.04, and I am having trouble with the built in Bluetooth/Wifi device.

    Wifi on it's own works fine, Bluetooth on its own works, but when you try to use both it is highly unstable. For example if I try bluetooth headphones while listening to YouTube, it will drop the bluetooth randomly and the sound will be very choppy.

    If I try uploading a video via Bluetooth the wifi drops and gains randomly.

    Obviously it is a driver issue, but I haven't found anything in regards to this, can anyone help with this?


    Just checked the firmware and the Bluetooth is a Broadcom BCM43142A0 got the following:

    firmware-b43-installer is already the newest version (1:019-4).
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    libcaca0:i386 libsdl1.2debian:i386 libslang2:i386
    Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
    0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 89 not to upgrade.
