Re: wireless keyboard and mouse cross interference

Try changing the frequencies of the signals or standards of the devices so that they work in different channels.

My usb receiver broke for my evoluent mouse. Is there a way I can replace only the usb receiver for this mouse or do I have to repurchase the mouse?

I'm afraid you'l have to repurchase a new set of USB dongle and mouse. Dongle of another wireless mouse is not compatible with a mouse not paired with it from babric.

USB Dongle for Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse 5000

My best advice: don't buy a wirelss mouse. If you want a REAL wireleess mouse, get a blouetooth mouse.

Wireless keyboard and mouse

Most problem with the wireless keyboards and mice are one of them is not responding or not connecting to the wireless USB adapter that's connected to the computer, here are the things that you may do:

1. Make sure to use fresh batteries.

2. Verify if the keyboard and mouse are turned ON.

3. Avoid putting any possible wireless interference such as base of a cordless telephone and cell phones.

4. In pairing up the keyboard or the mouse, try pressing the connect button on the USB wireless receiver followed by the connect button on the wireless keyboard or mouse.

5. If that did not help, then hold down both connect buttons (on the wireless receiver and on the keyboard or mouse at the same time for five (5) seconds and then release them both).

The keyboard or the mouse should connect to the USB receiver. If same problem occur, then the device needs repair.

The antenna that you found is purely for the Wireless LAN. The Keyboard and Mouse are already paired with the bluetooth receiver. This is "HIDDEN" in the mouse battery compartment. But not where you'll see it... it is in the LID of the compartment.

It may not be any other interference; simply the distance from the mouse to the receiver. Also, check the bottom of the mouse, to make sure that nothing is blocking the optical sensor (the red light).

Keyboard does not type

If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
  • Low batteries
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.

Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
  1. Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
  2. Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.

  3. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.
    Red Connect Button
  4. Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.
    Red Connect Button NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
  5. Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
  6. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.
    Red Connect Button
  7. Quickly press and release the red connect button on the underside of the keyboard.

  8. You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
  9. Test your keyboard to see if it is working. If the mouse now works but the keyboard still does not, see Knowledge Base article 9144.

  • 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.

    MS Mouse Optical 2000, scrolls by itself, opens links and moves the cursor all by itself.

    Interference from other wireless users was my problem. The signal coming from other offices around me interfered with my mouse/keyboard. I had to switch back to wired mouse/keyboard.

    Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.
