    Post Mac book Pro's bluetooth not able to search Bose Soundlink device

    Hi,

    I have been trying to make work Both Mac Pro and Bose Soundliink together but nothing comes up as result yet.
    I am using Mac pro whose Apple Bluetooth Software Version: 4.1.2f9 11046 with Bose Soundlink wireless.
    But in search device I can not see name of device. I can share the Bluetooth(Mac pro) details given below:
    Manufacturer: Broadcom
    Firmware Version: v100 c5051
    Bluetooth Power: Off
    Discoverable: On
    Vendor ID: 0x5ac
    Product ID: 0x821d
    HCI Version: 6 (0x6)
    HCI Revision: 5051 (0x13bb)
    LMP Version: 6 (0x6)
    LMP Subversion: 8804 (0x2264)
    Services:
    Bluetooth File Transfer:
    Folder other devices can browse: ~/Public
    State: Enabled
    Bluetooth File Exchange:
    Folder for accepted items: ~/Downloads
    When other items are accepted: Ask
    When receiving items: Prompt for each file
    State: Enabled
    Incoming Serial Ports:
    Bluetooth-PDA-Sync:
    RFCOMM Channel: 3
    Requires Authentication: Yes
    SerialPort:
    RFCOMM Channel: 1
    Requires Authentication: Yes
    Outgoing Serial Ports:
    Bluetooth-Modem:
    Address:
    RFCOMM Channel: 0
    Requires Authentication: No


    & in Bluetooth preferences I made allow bluetooth device to wake this computer selective and Serial Ports - Bluetooth-PDA-Sync & SerialPort both selective.

    Please help me sort out this issue if you can.

    Thanks,
    Rohan

    Thanks for your reply,

    The device only says, "Bose Soundlink Wireless mobile speaker", but doesn't say "II",
    Its not even mentioned in the device or over bill.

    Regards
    Rohan

    Is it this one then?

    It looks like there may be a firmware update available for it, if this is the one.

    Hi Thanks for the link,
    I tried updating the software & got the following message :

    "Your Device already has the latest software version. No updated is needed. It is now safe to disconnect the USB cable from device"
    Software version 1.00.14

    Is there a button on the Bose that has to be pressed down to make it discoverable? On some Bluetooth speaker products discovery is possible only during a set time period of a minute or two. You must open the computer Bluetooth discovery settings on first then activate the speaker's discovery mode.

    This prevents a device from being accessed by anyone around the network that has no physical contact with it for security concerns.

    Is the devices supposed to connect directly to the Mac via Bluetooth or is there a USB Antenna that has to be plugged in?
