Hi, I have a PC running Windows XP SP3, which has been connecting to my router fine until now using a wireless connection.

I'm now trying to install a Belkin Bluetooth USB adapter which is needed to interface with some work equipment. I only need the Bluetooth to wirelessly connect with the equipment and nothing else.

However, when I install the Bluetooth software from the disk provided, it immediately knocks out my wireless connection. The wireless is showing as being connected, but I'm unable to access the internet.

I know the router is fine, because I can access the wireless network with my laptop. I've tried changing the router channel, in case the wireless and Bluetooth were in conflict, but still have the same results.

I'm assuming that there is a setting in conflict somewhere, does anyone have any ideas? Many thanks!
