Hey Guys




Just want to know, i have brought those cheap Wireless DSE Keyboard on trademe. According to the USB wireless controller, it is using the 2.4GHz


In my house, I have managed to found one of those Microsoft Wireless Mouse (colour one).


When I am connected both on the USB, it seems the keyboard has taken out much more stronger frequency to interfere the mouse as I found out the mouse is quite hard to control..


is it now days, that means 1 computer with 1 wireless set of Keyboard and mouse only?

It means either the KB or mouse was a very crappy design. ie cheap & nasty.


Ive seen cheap & nasty wireless mice that will interfere with the same brand wireless mouse on nearby PC. Again, bad cheap design.

Better to get a mouse/kb as the one wireless kit
But, plenty of people using separate wireless KB and wireless mouse with the 2 USB dongles , if reasonable Quality (eg newer MS or Logitech etc)

Are you using USB3 ports? I have heard these can cause interference with 2.4ghz devices.

Some of the older 2.4GHz wireless stuff was not that smart about changing frequency.


I havent had any issues with logitech or razer wireless mice, my generic cheapie ebay $3 ones often lag out. Guess its a case of getting what you pay for.

I had a similar issue with my xbox controller drivers interfering with my mouse on my PC. I had to replace the drivers manually then all worked well.


Controller was MS and mouse was Logitech.
