Hi, I am hoping that someone can advise me on a bluetooth/wifi conflict.
I am running 18.04.4 LTS on a Dell Inspiron N7110. When I connect my bluetooth headphones, it disconnects me from wifi. This happened once before (I have only tried to use the headphones twice) and I got so mad that I reinstalled the OS but I would like to find a better fix.
I tried disconnecting the headphones, turning off bluetooth, restarting, and restarting in recovery mode but nothing worked. I then tried to connect with an ethernet cable so that I could get the wireless-info script. For the first few minutes, it would not recognise that connection but then everything suddenly everything snapped back on again. Has anyone else come across this?
I ran the wireless-info script, in case there is anything that jumps out there wireless-info.txt (27.4 KB)
Now that it is working, I could reconnect the headphones, and then run the script again after it loses the connection, if that helps to diagnose it.
I do note that, when I hover the mouse over the bluetooth icon, it says that I am connected to 1 device even though nothing is connected. If I shut bluetooth off and then turn it on again it will just say “bluetooth is activated” for a minute or two but then it goes back to saying taht it is connected.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
