I bought an Asus Z87i-deluxe motherboard in september and have had some issues with the drivers which Asus does only provide for windows. The motherboard has a wireless and bluetooth module as well as an ALC1150 audio module https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/Z87IDELUXE#specifications

I first installed the system with 13.04 and could not get either wifi or bluetooth to work. I had found a hack allowing me to install the windows drivers for the wifi and that worked but not for bluetooth.

Upgrade to 13٫10 broke everything so i did a clean install. Not sure if thats new but my wireless card was now present in "Software and Updates" "Additional Drivers" listed under "Broadcom Corporation: BCM4352 802٫11ac Wireless network adapter. It was disabled by default but all I had to do was select "Using Broadcom 802٫11 Linux STA wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source and that enabled my wireless to work.

But I still cannot get bluetooth to work. No module is detected. I am not sure if the bluetooth module is part of the BCM4352 http://www.broadcom.com/products/Wireless-LAN/802.11-Wireless-LAN-Solutions/BCM4352

I did some research and ran some debugging commands

$ rfkill list all
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
1: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

But I honestly dont know where to go from there. I installed blueman bluetooth manager and it could not find any bluetooth device either. Most of the research i did, people had connection issues but were mostly able to find their device.

On another topic, ubuntu detects the sound module as 2.1 rather than the 8 channels it really has and I cannot change that. This is lower priority for me but if you have an idea I would appreciate it.

I appreciate any help you guys can give me

Did you ever get this to work? I am having the same issue –  hknust Jan 1 at 3:58
    
Nope. I am still looking for a solution..... –  user218404 Jan 25 at 8:38
    
Upgraded to Trusty and the problem went away. –  hknust Feb 7 at 3:39
    
Did you have to do anything special? I upgraded (not reinstalled) to 14.04 alpha and it still says no bluetooth adapter found. –  user218404 Mar 12 at 6:29
