    If anyone has information they can point me to on solutions to
this bluetooth - wifi issue, please do. For either Windows or Linux.

I have given up on using Bluetooth mice and headsets in Windows due to

including Microsoft Surface and Microsoft mice. If there were any real

AFAIK there isn't one (Registry setting).
I've seen a similar problem with a Microsoft branded bluetooth mouse,
that case I had to disable wifi to get bluetooth to perform properly.

If I was you I'd examine the module options with 'modinfo'. You might
also consider telling us which module is in use :)
