    I have a Belking wireless mouse, It really stops working more than 6-8 inches away from the usb sink device. Is there any way to increase this rang to atleast 1 foot to 2 foot away? Hopefully there is a setting I can change in the settings.

They are really not designed for longer range but here are some ideas from people that have found ways to increase the range. Of course, any internal modifications void your warranty and can cause damage to your device and/or computer! So maybe you can just try the external wire tricks.

I have installed a new monitor and since this I can synchronise the Logitech Ex110 Mouse but not the keyboard. Can you help


You could try a new battery in the keyboard, and also move the receiver unit nearer to the keyboard as you'd be surprised at how small the operating range is. Regards, nicam49

How can I get a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse adjust for better reception


<p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br /> <p><br /> <p>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. <br />

Keyboard continues to disconnect. While typing, the keyboard give a message - no connection & as I type, nothing happens, no commands are executed and this process slows up the progress of work...


Check the location of the receiver. Trying moving the keyboard/ mouse right in front the computer when this happens and see what it does. Lost connections in a wireless mouse keyboard are typically (in order):
1) Batteries: change with fresh ones. Be 100% positive they work.
2) Location: move the KB/mouse very close to receiver, or switch the port of the receiver. If both devices disconnect receiver is either on a bad port, or failing, too far or has interference (with other devices in house). If only 1 device disconnects then try moving it closer (even temporarily). If that fails the device could be failing.
3) Hardware failure: unlikely but possible.

It is unlikely to be a software issue for a keyboard like this (the basics should still work), but if you really love the mouse you can always just use that with a new wired keyboard.

My logitech mouse wont work but i think it might be the reciever thats messed up


hi bruce,

for security and comfort reasons, get another keyboard and mouse
( just in case you mix up sth. or windows fails recognizing your cordless devices)
then

- do check if the batteries of the mouse have gone flat,

- powering up the usb port 2.0 voltage in BIOS (only if there is such option available!) might add to the range of the transmitter

- now resyncronize keyboard, mouse and transmitter device

good luck.

My computer stopped recognizing my wireless keyboard &amp;amp; mouse. Says it's missing a driver or that the device is malfunctioning. Don't think it's a battery prob. Do I need a new driver?...


Uninstall the Keyboard driver.
Unplug the Logitech keyboard.
Restart the computer.
Plug the Logitech keyboard back into the computer.
Windows should recognise the keyboard and/or the mouse.
Place Logitech setup disk in drive.
Reload the drivers...

The drivers sometimes corrupt themselves..
You might download the latest drivers for your keyboard/mouse.

Unable to connect Logitech cordless keyboard


Of course you know to press the connection button on the receiver then on the keyboard. Since setPoint is recognizing the connection I wonder do the multimedia and function keys work? Do you have the the USB receiver for the KB/Mouse plugged into a hub or KVM switch? If so plug it directly into the back of the PC. See this KB http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=9247

I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help Thanks


This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.

By default this comes with rechargeable batteries but just to make sure it isn't a battery/charger problem try using new alkaline batteries. If it works then you may have a problem with the charger. If the problem definitely isn't batteries then the next candidate is transmission of the signal between the cradle and the mouse. Move the base or the mouse to within a few inches of each other. Make sure the mouse is working then start moving the mouse/cradle to its original position or further away till the problem reappears. Chances are you'll find an obstruction or a distance issue. Ordinarily these should transmit at least 3 to 5 feet away, sometimes even further. Over time I have seen a degradation of the range to the point where they have to be fairly close together to work reliably. If its still within the warranty I?d call Logitech for a repair/replacement. Let us know if you have any other questions otherwise thanks in advance for rating this post.
