This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.

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.

Cordless logitech mice interference


Hi!
I think what happens there is that both mice is running on the same frequency. What you need to do is to restart the wireless of just one of the mice by pressing the connect button on the usb reciever and on the mouse. That way it would try a different frequency.
I hope this helps.

I am using a logitech wireless mouse and i pick up some ones keyboard single from two floors down what can do about this can i change my mouse single to stop these


There is nothing you can do unless your mouse has a way to change channels. You could try wrapping in tin foil, and placing real close to your mouse, it will still get your signal, but it should be shielded enough so the other signal will not interfere, give it a try.

Make sure you have the latest drivers from the logitech website.

Also, make sure that the receiver is within a reasonable proximity of the mouse. I have also found that I get interference if I have placed the receiver near my speakers.

Please rate me if this works.

Logitech MX3200 wireless keyboard and mouse


Hi...

You're probably going to need a Desktop USB Extension stand or cable if, I assume, you have your keyboard USB Receiver plugged into the back USB port of your desktop. These extension stands often come with your cordless devices (i.e., I got one with my Logitech cordless mouse... I don't need it for my laptop, but I do when using my desktop PC). You can make your own extension by purchasing a "Male-to-Female" USB extension cable, 3 to 6 ft in length (or longer if you need it). Plug the cable into your desktop, place the female end of the cable near where your keyboard is, and plug your keyboard USB receiver into the female USB socket of your extension cable.

Hope this helps!

Does this happen always or only in this game? If it is only in this game, then you may want to consult the game manual. If not, then it could be interference that may be causing the problem.

Any electrical device, such as the computer monitor, Zip drives, speakers, etc., can cause interference with cordless products. Most likely, this will effect tracking of pointing devices or the range of the device. Also, using cordless devices on a metal desk or a desk with a metal frame can cause problems with pointing device behavior and range. To resolve these types of issues, try moving the receiver at least 8 inches away from other electrical devices. Interference issues can also be resolved by moving the mouse closer to the receiver. You may also want to experiment with different locations and positions for the receiver, including moving the receiver to an upright/vertical position or rotated to a different angle. Another alternate solution is to elevate the receiver by placing it on a CD ROM case or other item.

Please let me know if this helped..
