I'm running Windows 7 connected to a wireless network.  I'm trying to add a bluetooth usb so I can add devices.  Whenever adding bluetooth usb, the wireless connection immediately loses internet access.  It doesn't disconnect from the wifi, but it loses internet access.  Any thoughts?

I tried multiple bluetooth usb's.  i think that it might just be coincidence.  i updated the wifi adapter driver and now things seem to be ok.  I've got the bluetooth connected right now as well.  I'll wait a couple days to see if it's stable now.

Keep you posted.
