Logitech Keyboard & Mouse Doubling up

  ventanas 10:17 30 May 2008

I have two wireless logitech keyboard/mice.
One keyboard has failed, but the mouse is still ok and I much prefer it to the one I am using now.

Obviously each mouse is not detected by the sensor for the other.
But, can I connect both sensors so that I may continue using the working keyboard, and have the much preferred mouse.
Don't know if there will be a clash or not.

Grateful for any advice.

My advise - just try it, I'm sure it won't do any harm.

PS - you might need to change Channel on one or the other.

Another thought...

Pop across to the Logitech website and see if there are individual drivers available for each of the separate items.

BTW. I did have a similar sort of 'difficulty' I had a wireless MS keyboard and mouse. The mouse was, to be polite, rubbish; and I bought a better MS one. After a bit of messing around, I plugged the mouse wireless receiver into one usb port and the keyboard wireless receiver into another and... Hey Presto! It worked.

OK, going to try now, thanks to you both.

No idea who that idiot is.

Fine, seems to be ok.

The next restart will be the final test. going to shut it down for an hour at lunchtime.

This mouse is much better. One system cost £25 and the other £75, so you can guess the difference.
