2.is it possible that the instalation change something in my OS (overwrite something ) and thats the reason why my wifi card is off?

3. i have instal cd and used it.so drivers should be original,right?i mean ,no microsoft drivers.am i right?

4.is Btooth using ip address ?

5.when instaling Bt i saw on monitor that there were more drivers installed.do I need them all?

6. can u help me please???

BlueTooth and WiFi use the same radio frequency (2.4GHz), to run both you may need a BlueTooth device that supports Adaptive Frequency Hopping (v1.2). It appears that both your WiFi and BlueTooth adapters are external (PCMCIA WiFi and USB BlueTooth?). Combining these technologies in one device would be ideal as the manufacturer would (should) ensure they operate together, sadly I can not offer a suggestion for a device vendor, but maybe someone on this forum can fill in the gaps.
