so i unistalled belkin software and tried my wifi connection.everything worked i tried instal belkin software again and what happend?installation was succes but i lost my connection again.after 3rd installation i`ve checked device manager and everything was ok.bluetooth devices =ok,wifi card + ok.
so my questions are: my bluetooth interfere with my wireless card and thats the reason why i loosing connection? 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 drivers should be original,right?i mean ,no microsoft i right? Btooth using ip address ?

5.when instaling Bt i saw on monitor that there were more drivers 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.
