    Hi

    If my laptop connected Wifi (notcable) to internet and I have a testing tool that can be connected to my laptop via Bluetooth

    Can I have both connections active ? Or I have to disconnect wifi to make bluetooth connection ?

    Thx

    You can use both WiFi and Bluetooth at the same time, They are for different purposes. They are two different transceivers.

    The WiFi will connect you to the Internet.
    The Bluetooth will connect you to peripherals.

    You can turn them on and off independently. I usually keep bluetooth off until I need it.
