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!

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.
