I have finally bought a new keyboard and mouse as my last set were driving me mad due to my daughter working them to near death whilst playing computer games. Funnily enough the lack of "double click" on the mouse didn't affect her game playing, so I am wondering whether it is possible to run two mice off of one base station so she can continue to hammer the old one, and my husband and I can enjoy the luxury of a non played with, new one (same with the key board!) If i reconnect each time I change the ouse it works with whichever has been connected , I just wondered whether or not it is possible
Yes, it is. Two wireless mice might be a problem, but I have had two mice installed and working correctly on one PC. One was cabled, the other wireless. If they both need to be cordless, then all you can do is try it. The only possible issue is one of signal interference, but it may well be fine. There almost certainly won't be any device or driver conflicts.
No, just plug it into another port. You might as well use PS2 for the wired mouse, unless you have a surfeit of USB ports going spare. No need for any kind of splitter. If your two wireless mice don't work together, then that's most likely to be a signal problem.
