Hello!

I have an Atheros QCWB335 Wifi and Bluetooth chip in my computer. System says Bluetooth is on, but AirDrop and Bluetooth file transfer are not working. Also, Bluetooth icon in the menu bar not just doesn't shows up devices, there is no devices section. Only a Bluetooth: On text and Open Bluetooth settings button.
How do I solve the problem?
Also, how I upload PR files in this forum topic?

QCWB335 is AR9565, is partially supported. @Cyberdevs has already created a tool for ease. You can check that in Downloads section of the forum.

For the AirDrop and Handoff, it's not supported as the Card is not fully functional.

Is partially supported and the BT may or may not work. The best solution is to replace the card with a compatible one.

Does an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 work?
