  • Nintendo Switch External Device - Can't connect properly

    Setup for Switch Console external device says it completes properly, but the 'Connecting' status loops forever. Here's a video showing what it looks like:

    The video didn't capture the pop up window, but during the video I am setting up the Switch External Device which says it successfully completes. Then the looping starts.

    1. PS4 External Device works fine.
    2. Tried disconnecting all controllers from Switch Console and re-starting setup process.
    3. Tried un-installing bluetooth adapter and re-installing.
    4. Tried un-installing reWASD and re-installing.

    Any help is appreciated!

        We had some reports already that bluetooth connection with Nintendo Switch was not working anymore after some latest updates in Windows 11. It is still under investigation.
