Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

Info about Wireless Computer Mice

Are there wireless computer mice that don't have to be directly in front of the adapter so they can be used?

Is there any such thing as a wireless mouse that works perfectly within about an 18-20 inch radius?

Thanks!

I've used a microsoft optical deskpro setup for years. My keyboard & mouse both work perfectly with the receiver about 3 feet away on the opposite side of my desk. Neither is directly in front of the receiver and it has not been a problem. You can see the options at the microsoft website. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Mouse quit working


Logitech wireless mice operate in a slightly different technological sphere to wired mice.
Wireless mice need batteries, they need to be turned on and they need an interference-free radio environment.
One advantage of wireless mice is that they tend to function with laser or optical parts rather than a ball and wheels, so there are fewer moving parts to go wrong.
However, optical and laser wireless mice have considerations to take into account.
Change the batteries in the mouse if the mouse doesn't work.
Remove the battery cover and insert new batteries.
On the underside of the mouse could be plastic sticker with a phillips head screw (star) under it
Turn the Logitech wireless mouse on with the switch on the mouse.
Plug the USB receiver into a USB jack on the computer.
Try to use a free jack that's actually on the computer rather than one that's in a hub.
Test the jack first.
Try plugging in a printer and see if the printer is recognized--that way you know the USB jack is good.
USB jacks are notorious in that you frequently get a bad jack on a computer.


Turn off devices that are in the same frequency range as the mouse.
Logitech wireless mice operate at 2.4 GHz, which is in the same area as Wi-Fi routers and older cordless phones.
Start by turning those devices off and see if you can eliminate any causes of interference.
Test with wireless speakers too, then computer power supplies, monitors, cellular telephones and garage door openers.

Place the mouse on a flat surface that doesn't reflect. Avoid metal surfaces too.

How do yoou connect a wireless mouse to your computer


Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.


Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.

Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.


The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.


However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.


Insert batteries into your mouse.

If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.


Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.


Install the drivers for your mouse.

Reboot the computer to apply the changes.


Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Hope this helps

Hallo i can not get my new wireless mouse to work


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.


Make sure you restart your computer with the mouse cradle / base plugged into the mouse port.
Then be sure to connect the base and the mouse by pushing the button on the base unit, then the small button on the underside of the wireless mouse.

Also try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice. And also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.


Thank you and good luck.

Replace the batteries. If this doesn't work, resync the mouse and the wireless adapter that is plugged into the computer.

Usually you can do this by holding down the button on the wireless adapter first and then the button on the mouse. This will also change the frequency in case something is interfering.

Move the wireless adapter (one end connects to the keyboard/mouse ports on your computer) closer to the front of your computer, i.e., closer to where your wireless KB/mouse are located.

No mice work on my computer!I installed a wireless mouse, and now no mice work, the wireless, and normal keyboard does. How do I fix the mouse socket?


if it is PS2 then you need to reboot your computer in order for the computer to detect the PS2 device ( the PS2 device needs to be plugged in before rebooting )

If USB then try a different USB port and also check bios settings to ensure all usb keyboard and usb mice settings are all enabled.

You could go into device manager and delete usb hub etc and let windows re detect and re install otherwise go to

Wireless mouse


With USB wireless mice, you plug in the USB wireless adapter, and turn on the mouse. Windows XP should automatically install the software, if not, install the software on the disk that the mouse came with (if there is one). If there isn't a disk, Windows XP will most likely install the drivers automatically. Press the connect button on both the mouse, and the USB adapter, and it should all work. Good Luck
