Asus Bluetooth 2.0 is a Bluetooth device produced by Asus. Bluetooth is a protocol which is open and wireless and which is used to send and receive data over a short expanse from fixed as well as mobile devices, thereby creating a PAN (personal area network). It is an especially useful device as it addresses synchronization problems by connecting several devices. It is an especially useful device for connecting and communicating through devices such as telephones, printers, mobile phones, laptops, GPS receivers, personal computers and digital cameras among others. Such exchange of information is achievable through a radio frequency bandwidth of 2.4 GHz. Devices with Bluetooth use radio communications therefore they do not need to be arranged in line with each other and can function well so long as they are within range of each other.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
There are two versions of Bluetooth; Version 1.2 and Version 2.0. Version 2.0 which is also referred to as Bluetooth 2.0 comes with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) and operates at a data rate of 3Mbits per second. This is an improvement on version 1.2 which functioned at a data rate of 1 Mbit per second. The speed improvement enables Bluetooth to be able to preserve their battery life and therefore perform for longer. A faster data transmission means that the device is able to go to sleep mode for a longer period after a transmission. Bluetooth 2.0 products are backward compatible with the earlier 1.0 and 1.2 devices. Bluetooth 2.0 also enables improved multiple- connectivity such that users can run more Bluetooth devices simultaneously and efficiently. Also, it features broadcast or multicast support as well as improved Bit Error Rate performance. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Asus Bluetooth 2.0 errors before installing any driver updates.
