Magnetotransport through quantum chaotic billiards is investigated by means of new model which incorporates chaoticity by introducing Anderson disorder on a number of sites (either at the surface or within the bulk) proportional to the linear size of the system L. In particular weak localization effects and the selfsimilarity of magnetoconductance fluctuations are studied. The results indicate that the controlling parameter in both phenomena is W/L, where W is the leads width.
