Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147

One wireless key board for two computers

Each computer has wireless mouse and wireless key board, I want to use one key board for both computers. Is there a button on the key board I can push that will swich back and fourth between computers? Like a A&B swich. I know how to register the wireless key boards but Im afraid if I do it will work on both computers and mess things up or won't work on either.

Thanks for your help

  • Decide where the keyboard will be placed, whether it is on your desk or a table. Spend a little time experimenting with positions and placement to make sure your wrists and arms will be comfortable. You should consider ergonomics before you set up the keyboard to avoid repetitive motion injuries later on.
  • Step 2 Install the batteries (usually three AA) in your wireless keyboard. Replace the cover securely so the batteries are connected properly. Turn the keyboard on.
  • Step 3 Get out the wireless receiver that came with your keyboard. Position it close to your computer, but not closer than about 8 inches, as the computer itself can cause interference with the wireless signal. You will also want to set the receiver away from other interference-causing devices, such as radios, TVs and telephones.
  • Step 4 Ensure that your wireless receiver is no more than about 6 feet away from where you plan to set your keyboard.
  • Step 5 Insert the CD containing the accompanying software into your computer. A dialog box should appear on your screen. If the install instructions don't pop up right away, manually access the CD by double-clicking its icon or selecting it from the Start menu.
  • Step 6 Plug the wireless receiver into a free USB portmag-glass_10x10.gif on your computer. If you don't have any ports remaining on your computer, you can use an external USB hub instead.

    CANT ENTER MY PASSWORD TO GET IN MY COMPUTER KEYS NOT TYPING ON SCREEN ITS LIKE THE WIRELESS KEY BOARD IS NOT RESPONDING


    My advice would be to put new batteries in the keyboard and see if that works, failing that, pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to log in to your system then re-connect the wireless set to re-install the drivers.

    The key board is not working- I can not log on- the mouse is connected but the light on the key board is off


    Try to shut down the computer unplug it wait for about 2 min. Plug the pc back into the wall and make sure all the keyboard is plugged in all the way.

    If this is a wireless keyboard do the same, and make SURE the batteries are FULLY charged. Press connect to see if the wireless devices work.

    Wireless mouse/ keyboard will not work when 2nd computer is on


    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
