    Just got a new (to me) M18x R2, replaced the hard drives and memory and did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro. I installed all of the drivers from the Dell site and also killer_bluetooth_4_0_0_419_win7_driver, and this is what I'm left with in Device Manager. Anyone have a good idea of what additional "Bluetooth Peripheral Devices" that Windows might be detecting and where I can find the drivers for these? Anyone familiar with this?

    Awesome, Raidriar. Thank you! The drivers didn't actually install, but during the installation process it alerted me to press a "wireless switch" that I didn't even know I had. I pressed the switch and the flagged entries disappeared in Device Manager. Thought it was fixed, that I had turned on a Bluetooth function that was off before, but unfortunately it turned off my WiFi. Still not sure exactly what is going on here, but it gives me some clues to investigate. :)

    What is your WiFi card? Broadcom Bluetooth only shipped with killer 1103, centrino 1000, and ultimate 6300 WiFi cards. If you have intel 6205, Bluetooth is part of WiFi card, no Broadcom 380 present
