This is a common problem with many USB devices. Most will work on hub but some are designed specifically not to. The biggest offenders in this category are Palm Pilots/Pocket PCs and wireless peripherals. They do this because they consume a great deal of the USB bandwidth and splitting it would make everything connected to the hub have connectivity problems. If you really need an extra USB port or two on a laptop, they do make a PCMCIA->USB card as shown here:

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

My wireless mouse does not work on my laptop anymore,however works fine on my sons laptop. Whats the problem?

Refresh the USB ports:

Here is what you do:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
3. Select HARDWARE
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB wireless mouse.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Logitech Wireless mouse.

As a rule the mouse is matched to the keyboard and a new mouse probably wouldn't work with the receiver.
Try this:
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Mouse does not work

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
