The antenna that you found is purely for the Wireless LAN. The Keyboard and Mouse are already paired with the bluetooth receiver. This is "HIDDEN" in the mouse battery compartment. But not where you'll see it... it is in the LID of the compartment.
If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.
This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
Computer power supplies
Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.
Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.
On / Off Indicator
Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.
Red Connect Button
Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.
Red Connect Button
NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.
Red Connect Button
Quickly press and release the red connect button on the underside of the keyboard.
Keyboard Connect Button
You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
Decide where the keyboard will be placed, whether it is on your desk or a table. Spend a little time experimenting with positions and placement to make sure your wrists and arms will be comfortable. You should consider ergonomics before you set up the keyboard to avoid repetitive motion injuries later on.
Install the batteries (usually three AA) in your wireless keyboard. Replace the cover securely so the batteries are connected properly. Turn the keyboard on.
Get out the wireless receiver that came with your keyboard. Position it close to your computer, but not closer than about 8 inches, as the computer itself can cause interference with the wireless signal. You will also want to set the receiver away from other interference-causing devices, such as radios, TVs and telephones.
Ensure that your wireless receiver is no more than about 6 feet away from where you plan to set your keyboard.
Insert the CD containing the accompanying software into your computer. A dialog box should appear on your screen. If the install instructions don't pop up right away, manually access the CD by double-clicking its icon or selecting it from the Start menu.
Plug the wireless receiver into a free USB port on your computer. If you don't have any ports remaining on your computer, you can use an external USB hub instead.
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.
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.
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
Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.
