I recently bought a mouse for my XP stand-alone computer. Upon receipt, I noticed it was windows 95/98/NT compatible with no mention of XP. I plugged it in though and it seems to work fine. Over the last few days, my cable modem has been providing intermittent internet access and losing connectivity on and off. The cable company is coming to look at it this weekend. I'm wondering if using the mouse I referred to above could play any role in my internet problem or is it just coincidental? Thanks. Jeff
Purely coincidental, especially if your mouse was plug and play like 99% of them out there today. My guess is that you are having a totally unrelated problem with your internet. If I was going to troubleshoot it, I would simply remove the mouse and any software that you might have installed with it and then check the internet connection.

No, the Generic USB mouse drivers included in any NT based windows install, 2000, XP, Vista and 7 will run this mouse. If the mouse fails to work on your computer first try a full shutdown then power up. If this doesn't work, you may have damaged the cord or have a faulty USB, try moving the mouse to a different USB port, and try more than two as any two could be sharing a single hub.
1. Go to manufacturer's website and download the driver for the correct MODEL of
2. Install mouse driver. Go "Control Panel" to configure mouse
3. o/s XP, right mouse click "My Computer" go Properties,
Hardware tab, Device Manager, scroll down to "Mice and other Pointing Devices"
to see if it is registered, and also check "USB Human Interface Device" in the
same window to see if your usb connections are functioning. There should be NO
YELLOW question marks in this window pertaining to USB and Mice Pointing
If it was a wired mouse with no name or model, you can just plug
it into the ports and it will work. Unfortunately, since it is wireless, you
MUST have the correct drivers(software that allows your computer to communicate
with the device), and the only way you can get the correct drivers is through
the manufacturer and choose the right model.
ALSO The USB device has what appears to be a circle with dots connected to it facing
the port. The dots are actually the word "Connect" in infintessimally small
letters. Plug it in, then use your thumb to press down on the circle while using
another finger to press up on the device's underside - in effect, squeeze it
between your fingers where the circle is. You'll see a red light blink. At that
point you can push the "connect" button on your mouse and it will work.
It doesn't need any drivers. Plug the receiver in a different USB socket, wait until the system finds it, and then pair the mouse and the receiver using "connect" buttons on both as instructed in the manual.
There must be interference on the signal from the mouse by the second PC
Make sure that there are no power cables close to the mouse or receiver, I have seen this cause problems many times.
You could also try changing the channel in the router settings in case this is causing the problem, it may be on the same channel as the mouse but only interferring when the second PC is turned on, ta, HPC
go to start>>control panel>>add and remove porgrams.
uninstall all of the Logitech software related to the optical mouse.
restart the computer, plug in the mouse usb, the windows OS should automatically detected the mouse.
Windows OS has logitech mouse driver buldin. you don't need additiona; software.
Hi, if you are running XP or Vista, most probably auto detect by your computer. You can also try google search for drivers or go direct to their website http://www.sakar.com/driverdownloads.aspx. Please let me know if this works for you. Regards
