Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Want a better keyboard and mouse get? Look in the Bluetooth
receiver. Receivers can be internal (the motherboard) or external (USB).
Bluetooth signals span of 33 meters or 10 meters, so a mouse and keyboard
should be able to work anywhere in this area, while the receiver is not blocked
and there is no interference.
1. Find your Bluetooth receiver. Each computer is different.
Laptops have a small round recipient, either on the side or front of the
notebook base. Desktop computers, indoor or outdoor antenna or Bluetooth
"dongle" that plugs into a USB port. Check your manual if necessary.
2. Place your keyboard and mouse to the side when an
aluminum casing. Newton Peripherals recommend this step because before 2009
most Bluetooth receivers were on the side of notebook computers, and the cases
of aluminum and magnesium blocking Bluetooth signals. Newer laptops have one
receiver in front of the cabinet, allowing for better reception.
3. Avoid placing the mouse and keyboard directly to your
desktop computer. The components built in front of the computer can block or
interrupt the Bluetooth signal, so put your mouse and keyboard on the side or
at an angle to the computer.
4. Interference check and surface. Bluetooth uses radio
waves and FM radios can interfere with the signal. Make sure the devices are
not turned FM. Make sure you're not the keyboard and mouse on a metal surface
or reflective surfaces because both can interfere with transmission.
