[Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

I have been having trouble getting the bluetooth with the AR9285 combo card to work.  The btusb module loads, but then has a timed out error.  I found a similar problem both on the Gentoo forum and the Ubuntu forum.

I have tried adding the ath3k module to rc.conf, but it did not change anything.

lspci:

02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

rfkill list:

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

Wow... looking at this led me down a wild path... if I followed it correctly.

It appears that this long thread sort of explains how your chip works on Linux:

http://forum.soft32.com/linux/RFC-btusb … 22254.html

They're talking about having the chip provide a VID:PID when there's no firmware loaded, and then morph into a different VID:PID after the firmware is loaded. Bizarre.

OBTW: Marcel Holtmann is the Bluez developer when you read that thread.

So it looks like the ath3k module needs to be involved here... as it's the module that loads the firmware.

Here's it's code for Linux 3.0.4:

http://lxr.linux.no/#linux+v3.0.4/drive … th/ath3k.c

So that's saying that the following should show a hit in your /var/log/everything.log file when it probed your chip:

   grep "intf.*id" /var/log/everything.log

Also check the logs for any errors.

So... what's the output of the lsusb with the ath3k module in play?... and out of play?

I'll have a look at the forums later on today when I have more time and get back to you on it.  Thanks for the effort.

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

After reading the forums, I've got some more ideas.  Let me get back with you tomorrow after I have time to try them out on my machine.  And thanks again for taking the time to look those links up and go through them.

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

Well, nothing panned out.  After a thorough check, I do indeed have a bluetooth device.  It is the AR3011 and is part of the AR9002WB-1NGCD.  I have even opened up the laptop and confirmed a BT ADDR right on the chip.

I started to think that perhaps there was a switch I needed to physically activate to turn it on, but the only switch I can find is the keyboard one (Fn-F2) and my tests came back negative (before and after switch):

[isaac@laptop ~]$ rfkill list
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
1: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no

[isaac@laptop ~]$ rfkill list
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: yes
1: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no

I have never seen the device on lsusb, and so I am forced to believe that it not being detected on some level.  However, on a different level, surely it is being seen by the software, for why else would btusb keep trying to use it and time out?  My previous laptop, which didn't have bluetooth, never triggered btusb.

Well, an important discovery has been made.  My bluetooth device is listed under lsusb, I just didn't know it:

I discovered this by watching powertop.  I noticed that it would briefly pop up as a device using power whenever I modprobed btusb.  Of course, it would then drop off as it timed out, but at least I know it is being seen by my system and recognized.  My question is now why my bluetooth device, which I was sure was an Atheros device, is registering as a Chicony device.  Is Chicony supplying Atheros?  And what driver driver should I use for this device?

Edit: Further searching seems to indicate that ath3k is what should be used.  How can I tell my system to associate it with my device?

Edit2: I just found a very recent bug report on this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … bug/841673

Is there any solution to this besides simply waiting?

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

Hello,
have you filed a bug report on this? This seems to be happening with me too (sony vaio VPCCA series...).
I am using gnome 3 I cannot switch it off there in the application, meanwhile if I click on the 'B' icon at the top it is marked as 'on'.
What can we do now?
I have tried a couple of things, like you, with no success:

before turning the wifi/bluetooth switch on

rfkill list
0: sony-wifi: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: yes
1: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: yes
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: yes
3: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no

after turning the switch on

rfkill list
0: sony-wifi: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
1: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: no
	Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: no

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

I didn't file a bug report because one had already been filed with the same kernel (at the time) and same hardware on the ubuntu site: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … bug/841673

I am waiting to see if kernel 3.1 fixes the issue since I have read that there have been some changes made to the bluetooth module that should come with the new kernel.

Your issue might be different than mine, since you aren't using the same hardware, so it might be a good idea for you to file a bug.

Re: [Solved-ish] Bluetooth and AR9285 combo card

I have fixed this problem, but it requires building my own kernel via abs, running makepkg -o, then patching ath3k.c and btusb.c, adding support for my VID/PID in the former and blacklisting it in the latter, then compiling with makepkg -e and installing the compiled kernel.

You can read more about it here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1221279

If anyone is interested, here is the patch:
