Turning on WirelessLAN activates Bluetooth too ?


Extraordinary Member
When I turn on the (physical button) "wireless Lan" at my notebook then automatically the bluetooth device seems to be activated as well. A folder "Bluetooth" is created and an icon "bluetooth" appears in my systray.
The bubble info tells my "bluetooth is not discoverable".
WLAN seems to works successfully.

But why is the bluetooth device linked ti my WLAN?

How can I disable this linkage?

I would think Bluetooth is wireless, so perhaps the message is correct.

Can you disable Buetooth in Device Manager or some other way?
