New CSR 4.0 Bluetooth dongles Not Working
I have just bought 2 new CSR 4.0 bluetooth dongles for my linux system and am having problems with it. I connect it to my computer and my computer sees thedongle where it is outputted when I type:
bluetoothctl list or,
However, the problem is that when I try to scan with the device it doesn't find anything. I have tried multiple solutions such as updating bluez, switching dongles, different computers, and much more. To explain the problem in a more clear manner, for example when I do "scan on" in bluetoothctl it says "discovering: on" but nothing shows. However, when I select my computer embedded bluetooth dongle and follow the same steps multiple bluetooth devices show including my 7 metasensors. I am just confused why this could be.
I looked for 2 days for a solution and some people have said that because that this is a cheap fake csr dongle, that it is not compatible with new kernals. However, I doubt that Mbientlab is selling bluetooth dongles that only support old kernals 3.9 or less. Some clarification and suggestions would be must appreciated. Thank you.
