I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help
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?''
''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.

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
