Re: BT 900 Dongle works but then disables itself after a period of time

Sounds like a Hub related issue, my problem only appeared when I upgraded to the Smart Hub, I assume you're using a different Hub?

I have used the BT 900 with HH5 and now HH6 with no issues & also using Windows 10 normal drivers so must be lucky not to have the issues mentioned on here.

Re: BT 900 Dongle works but then disables itself after a period of time

Just checked my BT 802 11ac Device Driver details as follows:

Driver Version 6.32.145.11 31/12/2014

Assume this comes via Windows 10 Auto updates. Hope this helps.

Definitely a difference in our Driver Software ? But why yours is stating Driver Up To Date is interesting ? Do you allow Windows 10 to Auto update like mine ?

Re: BT 900 Dongle works but then disables itself after a period of time

Yes Windows 10 is set to allow Auto updates, just to confirm my Wireless Adapter is the BT 600 and not the BT 900. I have had no disconnections whatsoever since I turned off the Power Management option yesterday so I'm pleased it's running OK now and hope it helps anyone else who may wish to try this fix.

Oh well, it's back to the drawing board, that fix lasted two days but it has now disconnected itself and required me to unplug from the usb port and plug back to reconnect!

Re: BT 900 Dongle works but then disables itself after a period of time

Hello again,

                  Just wondering, has anyone tried my 'not plugging in the dongle until a couple of minutes after boot up' with any success? It's still working for me after about three days.

Was trying to keep using the BT 600 adapter with the BT hub, I've now given up on it, just replaced it with a TPL 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter TL-WN727NTPL that I had lying around, all working OK, touch wood that's the end of the problem!

Re: BT 900 Dongle works but then disables itself after a period of time

The trouble is that there have been so many changes to Windows 10 in the last few months around the time that I started using the Smart Hub that I could not say definitely that it was the Hub that caused the problem.
