Determine Bluetooth Specification Versions Supported by your hardware

I understand there are a number of versions of the Bluetooth Specification, recently V2.1 with EDR and V3.0 and 4.0 perhaps on the horizon. How do I determine what versions are supported by my bluetooth hardware? (PC USB dongle or internal Laptop H/W) Can I test that my v2.0 or v2.1 device supports EDR (Enhanced Data Rate)? Are the version upgrades purely software/firmware, or are they hardware upgrades?

    Assuming this is Windows OS, you can determine by opening device manager, in the list of hardware, you can see a small yellowish/grey colored symbol on network section or its sub section (click the right arrow) now right click to open properties, click details tab, where you click the down arrow button, a pop up list appears, where you select hardware ids, the list shows under value. Write down the first one and search on the net with this key word. You can find actual driver for proper installation. Download it and install. Now hopefully it will work.
