Bluetooth Update killed my wireless Internet connectivity

2 days ago I decided to try getting the bluetooth working on the wifes R61i (type 8932-A54).

Since I didn't see any Bluetooth options (when doing fn-F5) I decided to load the Bluetooth update patch found here...


This is called "Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software for Windows XP, 2000 - ThinkPad ".


The download and install seemed to go OK with no errors. (this was done thru the wireless internet connection)

However... once this download was done I lost wireless connectivity to my Linksys WR160 wireless router.

I also still see no Bluetooth software to launch.

I tried uninstall... but since there is no "Bluetooth" software in the Add/Remove Programs area I cannot remove it either. (Where did it try installing to?) I have "no" "My Bluetooth Places".


I was able to get the Wireless router to connect by re-entering the configs on the router (from my desktop).

The R61i will connect wirelessely now (Fn-F5) but I can get no internet connection.


What did trying to download this Bluetooth app do to my Windows Internet Explorer config?

How can I get my internet connection restored?


I no longer even care about Bluetooth on the R61i. (although it would be nice)

I just want wireless internet connectivity back.


Any/all help for this problem would be greatly appreciated.


BTW... I am new to this forum and have done some searches regarding this problme with no luck.


Thanks In Advance!

Re: Bluetooth Update killed my wireless Internet connectivity



it seems here that your R61i doesn´t have bluetooth.


The easiest method is a system restore, through windows to get back to an earlier state of software

configuration, and before installing bluetooth driver.
