I have an asus tuf gaming b560-M plus wifi, it does have an external antenna but I didn't think it was for bluetooth and don't have it plugged in since I'm using a lan cable, PC is on the desk so fairly close to the connection. I can try plugging in the antenna

After installing the antenna it seems to be working as it should be. I just thought the antenna would only be for wifi. Thanks for the help!

I'm trying to use my dualshock 4 controller on my pc with Bluetooth and I can get it connected but it is super laggy, and inputs either don't register or are delayed. I was meaning to play this with Forza Horizon 5 with DS4Windows. I also connected my AirPods to my pc and all I could hear was static. I have done my motherboard chipset drivers and updated the Bluetooth drivers. Any help?

few questions, for completeness:

- which bluetooth adapter (or, which motherboard)

- if it's got an externall antenna, is it connected?

- where is the antenna placed, in relation to the desk and the controller

- is the desk made of metal, or does it have large metal elements?

- what is the estimated distance between the bluetooth receiver (or the antenna) and the controller?

 

bluetooth is only designed for very short distances, having a heavy desk in between can easily reduce your effective distance to about a meter or so. having the antenna on the back of your computer case, while the front is facing you, is going to be a bad time.

 

essentially.. consider bluetooth as a "line of sight" communication, if the receiver is tucked under your desk, expect the effective range to be tucked under your desk too.
