    Hey guys,
    I can't seem to properly get bluetooth running on the slate anymore.
    I install the official drivers from Asus' site but it only ends up with the bluetooth option appearing shaded and permanently "OFF"
    in the wireless options in windows 8. The bluetooth device doesn't even pop up in the device manager!

    This is really starting to bug me, I've re-installed 3-4 times now.

    So i'm thinking that maybe a new network/bluetooth card might fix this issue.

    I found out what the issue was:

    * I Installed the bluetooth driver from Asus, but not the windows update version.

    * Even if I uninstalled the Asus drivers, the windows update for the bluetooth module driver would not appear.

    I find the bluetooth working much better without involving Asus at all, so keep this in mind!
