Hello,

Running Fedora 17 w/ Gnome Version 3.4.2 on a Lenovo Z580 using the Intel Corp Centrino Wireless- 2200 rev c4 wireless/Bluetooth adapter.

I installed the Centrino driver from http://intellinuxwireless.org/ and the WiFi works well, however, Gnome does not detect the Bluetooth adapter (at least not fully).

It DOES however see it via the notification panel and I can turn it off and on there. Yet, using system settings, it is set to off and I cannot switch it on.

Note: I am using Gnome in fallback mode.

Check with rfkill. Sometimes it can disable parts.
