    Hi all.

    For anyone with a MBP 16” and boot camp windows 10 installed, what does device manager report the Wi-Fi adaptor as?

    My 2017 MBP has a Broadcom 802.11ac network adaptor which causes endless problems with connecting Bluetooth mice to windows 10 (it basically doesn’t work).

    Many thanks.

    It’ll be a Broadcom modem.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone know if you can connect Bluetooth mice to a boot camp Windows 10 installation?

    I don't see why not? I have an Xbox One controller connected via Bluetooth to my BootCamp install on a 16" MBP. I would assume the mouse is the same deal?

    I'm asking because Bluetooth mice can’t connect to the 2017 MacBook Pro 15 in windows 10 because the driver is duff.

    My Logitech MX Master works fine in BootCamp.
