    No. Why should it? Something else is going on, if you Internet speed went down. Most likely your WiFi card, which also does Bluetooth, is needing a little tweaking.

    What is the manufacturer & model of the laptop, along with the wifi & bluetooth chipset info.

    Bluetooth and older wifi use the same radio frequency band (2.4ghz). They are designed to play well together, but using them on the same machine could affect either one's performance. You could try changing your router's wifi channel or get a router with the newer 5ghz capability.
