Initialization of bluetooth interface on an Intel Wireless 7265 adapter fails with a timeout error.
Last modified: 2016-08-04 17:16:22 EDT
Description of problem: Can't bring up the bluetooth interface on an Intel Wireless 7265 adapter.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 22, also applies to Rawhire.
How reproducible: Always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "hciconfig hci0 up" as root.
Actual results: Operation fails with "Can't init device hci0: Connection timed out (110)"
Expected results: Bluetooth interface hci0 should be up and operational.
Additional info: Computer is a fifth-generation Intel NUC (should that be relevant).
This is most likely a kernel or firmware issue. Can you attach the dmesg log?
I am guessing it failed to find the right firmware or the id is not supported
on the kernel you are on.
I believe the 7265 was a new bluetooth/wifi card back when this bz was opened.
Since then kernel and firmware support has been added and things should work.
I am using that card in our labs with bluez-5.41 and things are working fine
with a 4.6 kernel.
Therefore I am going to close this.
