    Sounds like a really bad bluetooth adapter, that only supports 1 device at a time. I'd suggest trying to get a new one, they are dirt cheap. Also, the Joycons seem to have really poor range when it comes to computer bluetooth, so maybe try and find something like this.

    i will try connecting to my old laptop to see if its the bluetooth adapter. I kinda suspected the adapter but i had been using multiple devices before so i guess i discarded the idea

    Solved after updating bluetooth driver. Using external bluetooth dongle works too.
