Hang on, you keep saying about some kind of cabinet your pc is in. It's not some giant metal faraday cage blocking the signal is it? Also, what are you using to test the bluetooth? a foot doesn't sound like much but it really depends on what you are doing/using.

Can you go to your device manager, find your bluetooth module and reset the driver?



When you uninstall and then restart your pc, it should do a fresh driver install on startup. Obviously this will be tricky if your mouse and keyboard is bluetooth and turns off though, so use a usb keyboard if you need to.

I have already tried all of this as already listed in my earlier post.

So finally i have purchased external usb Bluetooth connector 5.0 as below

TP-Link USB Bluetooth Adapter for... https://www.amazon.in/dp/B098K3H92Z?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

And purchased 2 omnidirectional 9dbi antenna's dual band for wifi. So that i can hook it up in my motherboard SMA connector. Although my broken antenna was also giving me good range of wifi but i got rid of it and purchased new antenna's without wire.😊

But with new antenna's as well i got same problem. Bluetooth range is <Mod Edit> and wifi range is awesome.

That's why i got above usb Bluetooth connector to make my life easier

But I always got regret that my Bluetooth wasn't working through antenna's as it was working before.

Anyway, Thanks for your help.

Good Bye😊
