I searched google and finally found a solution.
If I use wlan my lan switches to ''disabled'' but when I connect it with cable it works good. I disabled lan in device manager and now wifi works good. 8)

I reconnected cables on wifi card, reinstalled windows xp and updated wifi drivers. I tried to use my wifi in a different location, but it doesn't work good. If my laptop is always on, the connection becomes limited and it helps if I close the lid (sleep) and logon again or reboot. I will try using ...

I use my BT with BT mouse and cellphone. It's ok with the mouse, but for cellhone is a bit more complicated - but not hard!
On my Z61m I used broadcom's software which was very easy to transfer/manage files. But I will get used to windows bt program. :wink:

I've bought an used IntelPro 2200BG wifi card and changed it with atheros AB. Bios displayed an error, but I've solved it with google and a blank cd. My wifi led isn't working but that doesn't bother me since I never turn it off.

Now the transmit power is 54 and my t40p rocks even more. :)
