    Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth Driver for Killer N1525

    W8.1 32/64 v3.0.0.432:
    http://download.msi.com/nb_drivers/bt/K1525_BT_3.0.0.432_Win8.1_3.0.0.432.zip

    W7 32/64 v4.0.0.432:
    http://download.msi.com/nb_drivers/bt/K1525_BT_4.0.0.432_Win7_4.0.0.432.zip

    Using this driver device manager displays the Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 Bluetooth 4.0 correctly.

    EDIT:
    Installed driver in my MSI GS60 that has a Killer N1525

    My Logitech BT Mouse M557 paired well and is working.

    My Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 smartphones also paired well.

    I have recently purchased an MSI GS60 - 064 which features a Killer N1525 and am having problems with wireless connectivity, especially while gaming.

    During regular use I have not noticed any issues. However, when I am playing WoW, for example, and am raiding I often have stutters in connectivity for 1-2 seconds at a time. While this sounds mild it is obviously a huge deal and I cannot continue to use it if this is always the case. The unusal thing is I have only noticed this problem in high volume situations like when raiding, and not when idling.

    I've tried doing all the research I can, and all I can find are some old issues with the GS60- 007 version that was fixed a while back with driver updates.

    Obviously, the standard response is to say that I should not expect seamless performance playing on wireless, but I have an old Lenovo laptop which does not have this problem on the same wireless connection.

    The reaction in this thread is mostly positive, but has anyone experienced issues like these? Any recommendations to a solution? Does it make sense that I only experience these issues in high volume situations?

    I hate this wireless card for bluetooth - I've only got it to appear once in around 30 boot ups, after I updated my BIOS. It paired ith all my devices as I wanted, but all traces of bluetooth vanished in the next boot. I've tried all the drivers mentioned here in this and thread and even tried switching black/gray cables back and forth but to no avail, it's like there's no bluetooth at all.

    It's a shame because the WLAN performance of this thing was so much better than what I'm used to from Intel. Will probably get the 7265 if I can't resolve these bluetooth issues. Any ideas?

    What is Device Manager showing in Bluetooth?

    I had issues with driver 3.0.0.419

    My MSI GS60 with the Killer N1525 and Bluetooth driver 3.0.0.432 on Windows 8.1 Pro x64 is working well pairing a Logitech M557 Bluetooth mouse.My Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 smartphones also pair well.

    When I was trying out an Intel AC-7265NGW I would lose the mouse on reboots and cold starts and need to pair again each time.

    There's absolutely nothing regarding bluetooth in the device manager. I've tried the above .432 driver and still nothing.

    The bluetooth only showed up once after a random reboot and was working fine until the next reboot. It's completely vanished ever since.

    Are you sure Bluetooth is enabled on your notebook.

    I there a Bluetooth icon in the tray by the clock.
