I have a BT mouse and Wifi on my EeePC and they both work fine at the
same time. Lots of people are going to be in the same situation, so if
Bluetooth and Wifi were incompatible I'm sure we'd have heard about it
before now, and very loudly.

I've no idea what's going on in your case, but my first thought would be
to try a different Bluetooth mouse. Perhaps yours is out of spec. Or
maybe your machine is simply overloaded.
