comment Bluetooth Not Working on 14.10 with BCM43142
Confirmed works for 14.04.2 LTS (64-bit). However, it took a couple of re-boots (and sudo modprobe -r b43 && sudo modprobe b43) before it stopped giving hci0: timeout/failed errors.

Unless you are also using a laptop with an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3160 [8086:8470] chipset (which uses the iwlwifi driver), then the steps given are NOT going to do much for you. Start by identifying the WiFi chipset. eg. output from lsusb, or lspci -nn

For a fresh install (14.10, 15.04), you need to run sudo apt-get update first, before attempting to load linux-firmware-nonfree.

Or use USB tethering.

Download .hex from drivers.softpedia.com/get/BLUETOOTH/Broadcom/… Use Open with Archive Manager, and extract last hex file (ending in .0122.0156.hex).
