ThinkPad T400 (6475-FP1) - Can't turn off Bluetooth & Wireless problems

Im on a ThinkPad T400 (6475-FP1)
I just upgraded to Windows 8, and it's working fine except some wireless problems.

I want to turn off Bluetooth because I don't need it.
How do I do that?

Im having some problems with wireless.
It works at my home, but it doesn't connect on my University wireless.
I know my wireless card (Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN) is not supported yet on Windows 8, but if anyone knows a solution, type it here.

Thanks in advance.

As far as bluetooth, Fn + F5 will let you turn off the radio. You can also go into the BIOS under security/I-O Port Access and disable it. As far as the 5100 wireless card, there is a note on the intel site that says this:

"If your system had Windows 7 and Intel PROSet/Wireless Software installed prior to upgrading to Windows 8, then Intel PROSet/Wireless Software will not install the first time. You need to install Intel PROSet/Wireless Software a second time for it to install correctly."

I would suggest the newest drivers from the Intel site. If you go here, they will make suggestions:

Bring up Settings charm. At the bottom it says "Change PC Settings". That looks like the title of the settings above (to me) but it's a link. Click it. Then click "wireless" on the left.


Is there a bluetooth contol  slider there?
