Are you facing issues with Bluetooth connectivity even when your gadgets are in close range.? Then you are not the only one complaining of this problem. Here I’m talking about Bluetooth on a Windows computer. The issue of Bluetooth range can happen due to various reasons. First users don’t properly update the driver of their Windows PC Bluetooth. So, it leads to a dozen of connectivity and range issues.
Bluetooth connectivity range normally spans within two-three rooms between which you can connect two gadgets. If there is too much distance between the gadgets then connectivity will break and sound output will stutter. That problem can be fixed by using a Bluetooth adapter that will extend the range of the Bluetooth signal. I have explained that in detail later in this guide.
Speaking of the guide, I have pointed out a few hacks that will help you overcome Bluetooth range issues when you try to connect your Windows PC with any other gadgets via Bluetooth.
