  1. Which option is this?

    I can't find it.

    But if you see "allow bluetooth devices to find this computer" greyed out, you just have to tick "allow bluetooth device to connect to this computer" first to have it available.

  3. Ok, can you go to broadcom and let their automatic hardware detection to run and find a driver for you and see if a new driver works.
