After having enough of this, I bought this Roker CSR adapter... Disabled the onboard bluetooth adapter, which was using a bluetooth stack supplied by Microsoft (RALINK branded). After plugging it in, the driver was not automatically picked up by Windows 8.1... so I put the small CD and ran the setup. No restart needed, no crazy sub-device installation (no Personal Area Networks, etc.)..
Went to the System Tray and clicked on the Bluetooth icon, and 'Add Device'.... Took 15 seconds to pair my bluetooth mouse and Logitech K810 keyboard. Absolutely flawless, range is decent...I'm getting 18-20 feet away from a front-facing USB port before I see ANY signs of connection loss. I can get to 25 feet before it's bad enough to move closer.
The driver seems to install 8 different processes that will start with Windows. Each of the processes are clear on what they are (ex: CSR Bluetooth Audio Service).. which is great because if one function of the Bluetooth driver ceases to work or function (hasn't happened yet), it won't bring the entire Bluetooth Stack down. All 8 processes use under 2 MB of memory each. My original Bluetooth stack driver for the old adapter used 40+ MB of memory. Which I've found is typical.
Definitely recommend to anyone needing an inexpensive but very decent quality Bluetooth Adapter with excellent Windows 8 support.
I bought the Creative D100 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker and the Roker CSR Bluetooth adaptor ($50 combined). I plugged the adapter into the Acer netbook and Windows 7 Starter automatically downloaded and installed all necessary drivers.
I chose the Roker based upon other reviewer's generally positive reviews - and for 10 bucks you can't go wrong. Quite frankly, I couldn't see spending $40 bucks on the D100 speaker and another $40 for the "recommended" Creative Bluetooth Adapter.
Overall, this purchase turned my outdated netbook into a perfect portable music player to enjoy outdoors.
I also spent a few more bucks and got this, Plugable USB Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Micro Adapter (Windows 8, 7, XP, Linux Compatible; Classic Bluetooth and Stereo Headset Compatible, but it is not working with my Windows 7 desktop (although I have not spent much time on it, and I did try to set it up without internet connection).
In conclusion, this is DA BOMB. No need to spend any more money.
