Re: Increase range of Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
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.

Check to ensure that the wireless receiver is plugged into your computer. Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the receiver to attempt reconnecting your mouse and keyboard to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use Bluetooth, ensure that your computer's Bluetooth is active and detects the mouse and keyboard.
Check to see if the keyboard and mouse are turned on. If the power indicator lights on the keyboard and mouse are not green, press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard and mouse on.
Check the batteries of the mouse and keyboard. If the batteries are dead, replace them with fresh batteries and reconnect the mouse and keyboard to the computer by pressing the "Connect" button on the bottom of the wireless receiver attached to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use rechargeable batteries, let the batteries recharge before using the device again.
Uninstall and reinstall your wireless keyboard and mouse drivers. Sometimes, the Logitech drivers are at fault for a bad connection. Use the Control Panel to uninstall the old drivers, then visit the Logitech website and install the latest drivers for your keyboard and mouse.
Search the Logitech Support Database. If your keyboard and mouse are still failing to function properly, visit the Logitech Support website and browse the support page for your product for specific solutions.
You say that the battery is ok. Please be sure that the battery is new and placed in the right way. After plugging the remote box to the PC you must sync the keyboard and the mouse. The range may be problem. If you keep the keyboard more one or two meters away from the remote, the signal is lost. And if you put the cell phone next to the keyboard or mouse, it may interfere with them. It also may interfere with wireless phone, radio or television signals. If it continues not to work, you can ask for the new one. Hope it works.
I have had a similar problem, when I wanted to run one Microsoft wireless mouse next to my TV and another Microsoft wireless mouse next to the PC in the same room. Both wireless receivers were picking up keystrokes from the keyboard, so the computer thought all keys were being hit twice.
You didn't mention your brand of wireless keyboard, but for microsoft products you push a button on top of the receiver, and then a button on the bottom of the keyboard or mouse to "pair" them. Repeat this step for the computers that are interfering with each other to solve your problem.
Find these steps laid out for you at the microsoft website here:
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.
Thanks! I fixed the problem by installing a USB mouse and using fn+f9. That unlocked the mouse so I could use the pointer leaving just the keyboard problem. I then tried reconnecting the wireless keyboard (by using the button on the receiver and under the keyboard) Hey Presto!!
This problem was happening on my system but i managed to fix it easily! What has happened is your itouch software has become corrupt so it will only recognise your keyboard thus the usb connection. You will need to download/install off disc onto your computer again but do NOT go to uninstall program manager on windows as it will not appear there because even though you can access the itouch configuration panel, the database is corrupt and the administrative system will not recognise this. Just download/install via disc and it will just install with no alerts unlike most programs which will recognise the program is already installed onto the system. Once the setup is 92% it will freeze for a second then the found new hardware window will appear on screen go through that process and your mouse is back to normal and your keyboard will work via itouch software.
(Please note that this will only work on windows)
