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.

How to get the internet on my lap top from my desk computer


You do not get the internet that way, The laptop wants it's own connection.n teh easiest way is to use a router, this also is a really effective, passive firewall.

So, the set up goes like this:
Modem connected to router, and the router is connected to the desktop and the laptop.

IF your router is wireless, change two things, one bump up to a higher channel, or risk interferance from cordless phones, and two TURN ON password access for wireless acccess, or you share your bacdwidth with everyone.

Hey Steve,
That keyboard is still available. If it still works, I would just tape a small block on the bottom of the keyboard near where the leg was. You may have to whittle an angle on it. Use electrical tape so your desk won't get messed up, or look around the hardware store for adhesive pads, rubber feet or ???? and save yourself around $80.00.

Belkin wireless adapter


Sometimes wireless phones will interfere with the signals. If the router or PC is anywhere near a phone, it might have a problem. I have one wireless network card that gives me fits like that. I have yet to get a PC working with it. I have other wireless cards that work fine. I also switched to 5GHz phones, which helped my old laptop. Check to make sure there's not a conflict with the encryption used by either the dell or the router.

Logitech optical mouse won't turn on with new batterys


When you say turn on, I assume you mean the mouse itself shows no indication of power. An easy way to check this is to turn the mouse upside-down and look at the red led light that illuminates the desk surface for the optical camera (This is most typically red, on particular models it can be other colors). If it's red and lit, then your mouse is receiving power. If that's the case, the problem could be that your mouse is simply not synchronizing with your system, or that it is not properly installed.

If the red light is not turning on, then the mouse is in fact defective. There is little to repair physically with optical mice, or mice in general. If you've ensured that the mouse has new batteries (not just old ones from out of the desk drawer that were new last year) and it is completely lifeless, I would say it's defective and should be replaced.

Hope that helps.

Mouse will not work when plugged in.


What kind of mouse is it? If it has a round plug, then it's a PS/2 mouse, if a rectangular one than it's USB.

Either way, I suggest getting a new mouse. Get a laser mouse instead of a mouse with a ball in it. They last much longer. I've been buying Logitech brand mice for years and find them to be reliable.

For example, at Staples you can probably pick up a basic, wired, USB Logitech mouse for under $30, maybe less than $20. I recommend wired over wireless, wireless ones burn up batteries quickly.

Also, I've found that if you have a round PS/2 plug for a mouse instead of USB, many of the Logitech mice come with a little green adapter in the package that will let you plug the USB mouse into a round PS/2 port.

I know this is a dumb solution, but mice are so inexpensive these days that messing around with an older mouse simply isn't worth the effort.

Try changing with a new set of batteries. also try to reset the connection of the wireless mouse and keyboard. you can locate a connect button on both the reciever and wireless keyboard. press both of them together and release them. this would reset the connection. try doing the same for reciever and wireless mouse connect buttons. this should work. also check for any possible alignment issues.
