First check the batteries. If they are good try pushing reset button on bottom of mouse. Watch you USB receiver and see if it blinks. Next press the reset button on the USB receiver and see if it blinks. Make sure your USB connection is good and if the receiver has been moved prior to the failure, it could be that the receiver was partially blocke somehow or not in a sightline that could read the mouse.

Don't have a router and want to connect the two wireless computers with each other you need to set up both computers to an adhoc mode.If using Windows XP in your desktop computer follow the steps below to configure the wireless adapter to adhoc mode.

Go to control panel> Network Connections> Right click on wireless network then hit properties> Click on Wireless network Tab and removed everything under preferred networks. Click on Add button then type on the Network name SSID "Linksys". Remove the check for "The key is provided for me automatically" then enter the network key. Make sure that you enter 10 or 26 characters on the network key box. You can only set a network in using alphanumeric characters. You can create a network key by using numbers only,letters only or combination of numbers and letters from 0-9 or A-F characters. Put a check mark on the box says "This is a computer-to -computer (adhoc) network." Hit the ok button. Under the preferred networks highlight the SSID that you have set "Linksys"then hit the advance button. Click on computer to computer [adhoc]networks only then hit close and ok all the way out.

You need to do the same thing on the laptop where you have the installed a wireless adapter. SSID and network key should be the same on your network card. It should be set to adhoc as well.

From the desktop computer, under network connections right click on wireless network connection then click on view available wireless network. Highlight Linksys then hit connect. Do the same thing on thel aptop. Once they are both connected try to ping each other and see if you will get reply. To ping the laptop from the desktop computer,follow the steps below:

a.On WinXP/2000:
Click Start > Run. On the Open field type cmd then hit OK. On the DOS prompt type ping then hit enter.
b.On Win98/Me
Click Start > Run. On the Open field type command then hit OK. On the DOS prompt type ping then hit enter.

Do the same thing on the laptop but instead of pinging the need to ping the

If you got replies it means that you are already communicating with each other.

If you are getting a low signal you may change the channel on the adapter. Follow the steps below on how to change the settings of the adapter:
For Windows XP and 2000
Right click on my computer properties>click on hardware>device manager>under network adapters right click on wireless-G notebook adapter then select properties>click on the Advance Tab then look channel then change it to 11. You may try to use other channels like1, 6, and 9.

For Windows 98 and ME
Click start>control panel>network>look for wireless-G notebook adapter with a green icon left beside it then double click on it>click on the Advance Tab then look for channel then change itto 11. You may try to use other channels like 1, 6, and 9.

Hope this help everyone.

Logitech s510 keyboard

I had this problem for a very long time as well. Turns out this is an encryption issue. It's off-balance. You need to reset the encryption, and here's how:

On the LEFT side of your wireless keyboard press and hold Ctrl+Alt, and press F12, then release all three buttons. Now push the Connect button on your Wireless Receiver, then the connect button on your wireless keyboard. Now press Esc. Try it. See if it works. It did for me.
