I'm not sure if this thread goes here or in Windows 7 section----

I have a LG bluetooth headset--works with my Galaxy S5 just fine----
I'm trying to listen to my music & Youtube on my computer with it----
my P8Z68 V Pro motherboard has BT-GO
but won't recognize my headset thru the ASUS suite2---
but
Windows 7 (64bit) will.
Windows 7 detects & pairs with the LG headset no problem at all
when I go to Control Panel // add Hardware page---the LG is shown.
when I go to the paired page it shows my computer & the LG headset with the Bluetooth symbol
between them no problem------
here is my problem
the signal strength meter only shows 1 bar, if I lean right up next to my tower it will go to 2 bars
& I can just barely hear the sound in my headset.
if I go to Device Manager there are 2 yellow symbols under ""other devices"""
but no yellow up at the top under ASUS bluetooth.
the driver listed for the ASUS bluethooth is ""Atheros Corperation"" 7.2.0.65
do I need to download the latest driver from Broadcom for the yellow symbol under other devices ??
if I download Microsoft Mobile Center software will this help me even though I can just barely hear the sound in my headset ???? they do pair.
like on Youtube do I need to pull off the plastic cover off the bluetooth I/O port
why does my Galaxy S5 show full bars (paired to the computer )
& the LG show only 1 bar (paired to the computer--
Help

P.S. LG doesn't supply any drivers for headsets // I asked LG

Apparently the range is short.

There is a youtube video supposedly showing you how to increase the range. I found it puzzling. There is no dialog nor onscreen captions. The guy has a tape measure and a Samsung phone. I have no idea what he is doing.

Your best bet would be to disable the weak onboard bluetooth and buy a USB bluetooth dongle.
yea--I think he is one of them who pulls the plastic cover off the I/O bluetooth port & clips a copper wire to the
tip that is inside the I/O port--
to create some kinda antenna--
I don't want to fry my board just to have head phones with bluetooth---
