Hi Guys,

I hope this is the right forum to post this.

I was using a laptop before. In that laptop I attached a logitech wireless keyboard and mouse. Product id: Logitech Wireless Combo MK 270. This is what the site says: Logitech® Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless gives you a fast, reliable connection up to 10 meters away with virtually no delays or dropouts.

The product worked without any problem at all. I have now purchased a new pc and am using the keyboard & mouse combo in that one. I am also using a Netgear WNA1000M USB Adaptor to connect to the wireless network.

Now at times my mouse is sluggish or stop responding occasionally. The problem is not there all the time. Both the wireless usb adaptor and usb receiver for keyboard/mouse is plugged in back of my cpu. The battery in my mouse is new and my operating system is Win 7.

Do you think this is because of interference of signals or ??. Please advice what should I do.

Thank you,

Cheers,
Jack

Hi
Sounds like it could be wireless interference.
Does your case have front usb ports,if so move one of the wireless devices to the front.If no front port then get a usb extension cable to physically separate your wireless receivers.
Is there a wireless device near your PC such as your router and is it possible to move it or change the channel.

Thanks for your reply. I have placed the receiver for wireless keyboard/mouse in the front usb port of my pc. I think it is better now. Though there is no wireless device near my pc, if there is a problem in future I think I will have to use an extension cable or something to place it further away.
