Okay collective geniuses, a question at large:
Blackberry Desktop Software KB20023 (http://bit.ly/occdjx) says don't install Bluetooth updates offered by Win7 Live Update. I'm being offered an "optional update" for "Realtek - Network - Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller 272 KB."
This update says it was *released* in June, 2011 -- the same time that the BB KB20023 was posted -- but that it was *published* on 9/2/2011.
So the question is: is this update the *fix* to the issue reported on KB20023, or is it going to be the *cause* of a problem per KB20023?
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller #2 - 7.34.1130.2010 (before update)
Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium (latest updates)
Dell Inspiron N7110 (Intel Core 5, 6 Gb RAM, 500Gb HD) purchased new Sept 2011
Blackberry Desktop Software v. 6.10 build 034 (bundle 2647)
Blackberry KB KB20023
Blackberry Torch 9800
Yes, I have contacted Dell Support (they don't support third party software, and they have no previous tickets on this issue), and I am awaiting an email reply from what passes as Realtek tech support.
I am holding off on the update, since Bluetooth works *fine* right now, the device is still paired, and data successfully xfrs via USB.
Thanks for any help on this!
