I have a new TDK USB Bluetooth dongle that I want to use with my Sony Ericsson T610. This would be for file transfres, Outlook syncronisation etc. - nothing too clever. Just the right application for "Plug n Play".... sigh

My PC is set up with an ethernet card connected to a cable modem (ISP is NTL in UK). IP numbers, DNS etc are assigned by my ISP automatically using DHCP

After I install the TDK bluetooth software I can no longer access the internet. The installation proceedure seems to mess up my settings big time. I have tried a search here and on usenet with no sucess but I suspect the is a simple(ish) solution if you understand networking which I don't - so all help gratefully received.

Before I install I have one network connection:

After installation (and before re-booting) I have three network connections including a rather bizaare Microsoft TV/Video Connection (?????) and my I can no longer broze any web sites

After re-booting the Microsoft TV/Video Connection connetion vanishes but the settings on my cable modem connection have changed. Fiddling with things doesn't seem to have an effect.

I'm getting really confused by this now, not only does it mess up the cable connection it messes up dial up connections.

I removed the network card completely and installed the bluetooth software and then tried my dial up connections. I could connect and ping IP addresses but it wouldn't resolve any names, a DNS problem I assume?

I then re-installed my network card and tried to set up the cable connection after installing Bluetooth, still with the same problems, the network card gets assigned an IP address of 169.254.222.250 (which I belive is locally assigned) instead of getting an address from my ISPs DHCP server.

If I try an ipconfig/release and renew I get the message "An operation is attempted on something that is not a socket" which must be a big clue.

Unintalling bluetooth doesn't fix the problem, a system restore does, so somewhere deep in the workings of Windows something is getting altered.
