When disabling the Bluetooth for the first time after a (re)boot, it takes a long while to truly disable and I can not enable it again in the meantime. After that, disabling BT for the 2nd time  (or more) works immediately without issues until the next (re)boot.

 

This issue is not present on Windows 10, it started with Windows 11.

 

I have a Ubit WIE7265 Wifi/Bluetooth 4.2 card in my PC (shown as AC-7265 in Device Manager). I am using the latest Bluetooth driver version 20.100.10.7. Using Windows 11 Pro 21H2 build 22000.613.

 

Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello @JohnnyGui,

 

Try updating or roll back (if already updated) your Bluetooth driver, see if it helps.

Try run Windows Update and download and install all updates.
Open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report this issue.
Try uninstalling the Bluetooth driver and use the Windows default one and see if the problem persists?
All updates are installed. The BT driver is also from Windows Update. I have made a feedback.

Do you happen to have a BT card? If yes, could you please try and test it out right after a reboot?
Just deleted and reinstalled the BT driver but unfortunately it's still having the issue. Do you have a BT card yourself?
