Trouble with your wireless mouse?

by on Mar.03, 2019, under Hardware

I’ve been encountering more and more radio interference with wireless keyboards and mice than ever before, particularly Bluetooth based devices. It seems like LogiTech’s Unifying Receiver (such as this mouse on Amazon – also runs on the 2.4GHz band. I’ve also noticed that plugging the receiver into a noisy USB 3.0 port seems to be more problematic than a USB 2.0 port. If you run into trouble, I recommend plugging the receiver in the front of the computer (using USB 2.0 if possible), try clearing as much line of sight as you can, update the drivers/firmware from the manufactuer, and re-pair the device with the receiver. Space any re-pairing procedures apart by at least 30 minutes since some Microsoft devices can pair with the wrong receiver if you set them up back to back.
